Q&A: Thorns FC’s Christine Sinclair
Looking back on your days at the University of Portland and now playing with Thorns FC. What have been a few of your favorite moments playing in the Rose City?
“I have to say the No. 1 highlight for me was winning the first national championship with the University of Portland for Clive Charles. That ended up being the last game he ever coached. Just seeing him hugging the championship trophy is a moment I’ll never forget. Walking out onto the field for every game, every practice, I see his name up in the rafters and it’s a reminder. It’s been pretty cool to be able to spend most of my career here in Portland.”
