Joanna Lohman and Lianne Sanderson of the NWSL’s Boston Breakers have been named to The Advocate magazine’s 40 Under 40 List this year.
Lohman and Sanderson met as teammates at the Philadelphia Independence of Women’s Professional Soccer and played together for DC United Women last season. Together they founded the JoLi Academy to teach girls around the world soccer, especially in parts of the world where it might be difficult for young women to have access to soccer training.
Lohman is also an advisor to GO! Athletes, which provides training, consultation, and peer support to make school environments better places for LGBT student-athletes.
Go Joanna and Lianne!
