Soccer Players LePeilbet, Makoski And Bogus Invited To The US U-21 National Camp
Feb. 26, 2003
TEMPE, Ariz. - Arizona State University women's soccer players Amy LePeilbet, Manya Makoski and Elizabeth Bogus have all been invited to participate in the Under 21 United States National Team Training Camp, March 1-9 at the US Training Center in Chula Vista, California. This will be LePeilbet's second year with the U-21 team, while Makoski (past member of the U-19 National Team) and Bogus will be making their first appearance at the camp. A complete summary of the players past achievements on the National Team and at Arizona State follows:
A junior defender for the Sun Devils, LePeilbet is a returning starter from last year's US U-21 National Team that won its fourth consecutive Nordic Cup Tournament in Finland with a 3-1 victory over Germany. LePeilbet, an Academic All-American from Crystal Lake, Illinois, holds a 3.84 grade-point average in sociology. She was a main component in helping to carry the Sun Devils into the second round of the NCAA Championships, the team's second NCAA appearance in the last three years. LePeilbet, the team's top defender, played a major role in ASU's nationally ranked program. LePeilbet was the quarterback of the ASU defense, playing middle back, that helped the Devils to tie a school record of five straight shutouts in 2002. Starting in all 21 matches, she assisted ASU to a 12-6-2 overall record with six shutouts. LePeilbet, a two-time All-Pac-10 first-team selection, scored two goals and posted one assist last season.
Makoski, a freshman midfield for the Sun Devils, was a starting midfielder on last year's U-19 National Team that won the inaugural U-19 Women's World Cup held in Vancouver, British Columbia. Makoski will be one of just a few players from the U-19 team that will be invited to the U-21 training camp. Makoski earned Freshman All-America honors by Soccer America Magazine and was one of 12 finalist for National Freshman of the Year honors by Soccer Buzz Magazine (along with current teammate Bogus). She also earned All-Pac-10 Second Team and NSCAA third-team All-West Region honors. Makoski started in 19 games (missing the first two due to U-19 National Team commitments) setting an ASU single-season record with nine assists, also good for third in the Pac-10. Four of Makoski's nine assists were game-winners to Bogus in 2002. Makoski finished the year second on the team in goals (6), first in assists (9) and second in points (21) and game-winning goals (2).
Bogus, a freshman forward, received her first invitation to a US National Team training camp. Bogus earned Freshman All-America honors by Soccer America Magazine and was also one of 12 finalist for National Freshman of the Year honors by Soccer Buzz Magazine (along with current teammate Makoski). She was named the Pacific-10 Conference Freshman of the Year, becoming the second Sun Devil - in only the seventh year of the program - to garner Pac-10 Freshman/Newcomer of the Year honors in the past four years. In 21 games this past season, Bogus topped the chart in the Pac-10 Conference in game-winning goals (7), was third in shots (62) and goals (10), and sixth in points (22). Her seven game-winners tied the Arizona State school record for a single-season. Bogus was also a 2002 All-Pac-10 First Team selection, one of only two freshmen to earn that distinction. She was twice selected as the Pac-10 Player of the Week, named to the Sept. 30 Soccer America Team of the Week and the Oct. 1 Soccer Buzz Magazine Elite Feet of the Week.
