Sky Blue FC goalkeeper Karen Bardsley, who grew up in Chino Hills and attended Ayala High School, was selected Women's Professional Soccer's Player of the Week after posting her third shutout of the season in a 1-0 victory Sunday over the Atlanta Beat.

Bardsley, an All-American at Cal State Fullerton, made 13 saves while facing 21 shots and 15 corner kicks as the defending WPS champions, who are based in New Jersey, climbed into second place after five games.

Bardsley, who plays for England's national team, also has coached at Cal State Fullerton and the University of San Diego.
