Three Trojans Selected To U.S. Under-20 Training Camp
June 27, 2013
Three members of the USC women's soccer team are in line for spots at the coming 2014 Under-20 Women's World Cup, having been included in the U.S. Under-20 National Team training camp next week. USC sophomore Jamie Fink has been called up to join the squad, which also includes incoming freshmen Mandy Freeman and Kayla Mills.
Freeman and Mills are just returning from a trip to Sweden, where the U.S. U-20 team played a pair of friendlies. Now, that group of U-20 pool players becomes 27 strong when everyone reports for duty at next week's training camp at the University of Portland. A 2012 Pac-12 All-Freshman Team selection this past season, Fink will bring her attacking and creating skill to the U-20 crew of forwards. Freeman and Mills are both experienced defenders at the U-20 level.
Following this camp, the three Women of Troy will return to campus for their first season together as USC teammates. If selected to the final U-20 roster, the trio would reconvene for Team USA for action at the CONCACAF qualification tournament in Canada. There, the USA and seven other teams will fight for a top-three finish in order to advance to the 2014 U-20 Women's World Cup in the Cayman Islands from Jan. 9-19.
