Jayden Kunwar and Noah Smith, who helped the Stanford A 14U boys win the gold medal in the Platinum Division, shared Most Valuable Player honors. Stanford teammates Gabriel Discipulo and Dominick Kirk were named to the First Team with Stanford's Alika Naone and Maxwell Patterson joining the Second Team.

The Stanford A 18U boys, who finished fourth in the Platinum Division, had Nelson Perla-Ward make the First Team and teammate Michael Swart make the Second Team.

For 16U boys, Stanford A had Jackson Enright receive Honorable Mention.

In the 12U boys division, Joshua Poulos of Stanford received Honorable Mention.

For the girls, the Stanford A 16U squad finished 11th in the Platinum Division and had Zoe Banks receive Honorable Mention.

Banks, a sophomore goalie at Gunn High, is currently competing for the USA Cadet Women's National Team in Kingston, Jamaica. The Americans played Canada on Thursday for the gold medal of the UANA Youth Pan American Championship following a 21-5 win over Brazil on Wednesday. Banks shared goalie duties against Brazil.
