CHAMPAIGN - Illinois soccer star Vanessa DiBernardo is trading her Red, White and Blue for Orange and Blue.

She is back at the U of I this week after spending the last month overseas helping Team USA with the championship at the U20 Women's World Cup.  DiBernardo is a potential All-American who says she made herself even better while playing in Japan.  It was an experience she says she will never forget.
