Molly Alexander Invited To Canadian Women's Under-20 Tryout
March 2, 2005
PULLMAN, Wash. - Washington State freshman Molly Alexander is in Vancouver, British Columbia attending the Canadian Women's Under-20 National Soccer Team camp.
Canadian U-20 head coach Ian Bridge invited the Vancouver native to attend the camp, which has traditionally served as a stepping stone for players to make the U-20 national team roster.
'The focus of this camp will be to evaluate the players, both new and experienced, in as many game situations as possible,' Bridge said in a story released February 25, 2005 by the Canadian Soccer Association. 'After the winter break, I think this is both demanding and fun for the players.'
Alexander is one of 15 players invited to attend the camp, which will take place from February 26 to March 6. She was a member of the Canadian U-16 and U-17 teams and the under-19 national team pool.
'We all wish Molly well,' WSU Head Soccer Coach Matt Potter said. 'Anytime you have an opportunity to represent or play on a national team stage it is a huge honor. I'm sure Molly and her family are as excited and proud for her as we are here at Washington State.'
Alexander entered WSU's 2004 pre-season camp with a knee injury that prohibited her from playing early in the season, but after rehabilitation she went on to make eight starts in 13 appearances for the Cougars. She assisted two goals and took six shots from the flank midfield position.
