Schott Selected for U.S. Under-21 Women's Soccer National Team Camp
Feb. 13, 2001
CHICAGO - Laura Schott, a sophomore forward on the California women's soccer team, was one of 23 players selected for the U.S. Under-21 national team camp, Feb. 18-25, at the ARCO U.S. Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, Calif.
Schott has previously spent time with the U.S. Under-18 national team, but this is her first opportunity to impress the U-21 coaching staff.
U.S. women's national team head coach April Heinrichs and Under-21 head coach Jillian Ellis intend to use this camp to choose the majority of the full U.S. women's national team roster for a European tour that includes a friendly match against Italy in Rieti outside of Rome on March 7 and the 2001 Algarve Cup in Portugal, one of the world's most competitive annual women's international tournaments.
Following the 2000 season, Schott became the first Golden Bear to be named an NSCAA first team All-American since U.S. national team member Joy (Biefeld) Fawcett was selected in 1989. She also was named a first team All-American by Soccer Buzz, an MVP by Soccer America and a first team All-Pac-10 selection after leading Cal to a 17-3-1 record and the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
