KOBE, Japan - Former Duke women’s soccer All-America Rebecca Moros has announced she has agreed to terms with Japanese professional team INAC Kobe Leonessa for the 2013 season. A four-year letterwinner at Duke from 2003-06, Moros garnered third-team All-America accolades in 2006, while also being named All-ACC on three different occasions.
“I’m so happy to be returning to INAC and Japan,” Moros said in an interview with Pitchside Report. “I had a tremendous experience last year and I’m anticipating this year will be even greater. I’m most looking forward to reuniting with my teammates and continuing to work together to grow the sport of soccer.”
Moros and INAC Kobe Leonessa compete in Japan’s premier women’s soccer league, the Nadeshiko League, which is widely regarded as one of the world’s top clubs for women’s soccer. Moros started playing with INAC in April of 2012, joining a team that had seven national team members, four Under-20 national team members and one player on Korea’s national team.
Prior to joining INAC last year, Moros played in the Women’s Professional Soccer (WPS) league for three seasons.
