May 5, 2010
STANFORD, Calif. - Three Stanford players -- Teresa Noyola, Rachel Quon and Courtney Verloo -- have been named to the U.S. Under-20 national team camp May 8-23 at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif., and National Training Center in Chula Vista, Calif.
The camp will act as the second-to-last domestic event for the U.S. U-20s before leaving for Germany and the 2010 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup, being held from July 13-Aug. 1 in Bochum, Bielefeld, Augsburg and Dresden.
The team will play four international matches during the camp, spending May 8-15 at The Home Depot Center where they will face the New Zealand U-20 Women's National Team twice (May 13 at 4 p.m. PT and May 15 at noon PT) before traveling down to Chula Vista from May 16-23 for another week of training, during which they will play the Mexican U-20 Women's National Team twice at the Olympic Training Center (May 20 and 22, both at 4 p.m. PT).
U.S. coach Jillian Ellis said she expects to announce the final World Cup roster by the end of May.
Quon, a defender, and Verloo, a forward, are nearing the end of their freshman years at Stanford, and Noyola, is a sophomore.
