March 2, 2009
STANFORD, Calif. - Stanford freshman Camille Levin has been named to the U.S. U-20 Women's National Team squad that will travel to Spain for the 10 Nations Tournament, held from March 6-14 in La Manga, Spain. Levin was one of 18 players and one of five defenders to be selected.
The team will play three matches against European U-20 teams, taking on Norway on March 9, France on March 11 and Germany on March 13. Head Coach Jillian Ellis is preparing the USA to qualify for the 2010 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup that will be held in Germany.
'As always, these games will be part of an evaluation process,' said Ellis. 'It really gives me an opportunity to test players against some very talented international opposition. Many of them have experience at the international level, but of course this is a step up for the players who played in the U-17 World Cup.'
Levin finished the 2008 collegiate season with six goals and four assists and garnered numerous postseason honors, including selections to the: SoccerBuzz Freshman All-American second team, Soccerbuzz West Region All-Freshman team, Top Drawer Soccer All-Rookie team, All-Pac-10 second team, Pac-10 All-Freshman team, and Soccer America All-Freshman Team.
