Levin Travels to La Manga, Spain with U-18 National Team
Feb. 29, 2008
The newly re-instated U.S. Under-18 Women¹s National Team swept matches against three Southern California college teams last week and will now focus on its first international competition of the year, traveling to La Manga, Spain, from March 7-16, where the U.S. U-23s played last month.
The U-18's will play a collection of European U-19's squads that will be soon trying to qualify for the European U-19 Women's Championships. The USA will face Sweden¹s U-19s on March 10, take on Norway¹s U-19s on March 12 and finish with an always talented France U-19 side on March 14. The U.S. U-18s warmed up for the trip to Spain with three matches played in cold temperatures at The Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif. Last week. The USA defeated Pepperdine, 3-0, downed UC Irvine 4-1, and then gutted out a 4-2 win over UCLA on the final day of training camp.
Levin, a native of Newport Coast, Calif., is one of six defenders on the roster is a part of a very talented recruiting class for the Cardinal coming next fall. With the graduation of Rachel Buehler, now on the US National team, Levin will compete in the fall for playing time on the Cardinal backline.
