Nicole Barnhart Named to U.S. Women's National Team Training Camp Roster
Sept. 27, 2006
Carson, Calif. - Former Cardinal women's soccer standout and current Volunteer Assistant Coach Nicole Barnhart has been called up to training camp for the U.S. Women's National Team announced Head Coach Greg Ryan this week. Barnhart, an three-time collegiate All-American, became the first Cardinal to play in goal for the U.S. two years ago and has since earned three caps for the USA, shutting out both France and Ukraine in 2005.
Barnhart is one of 24 players on the training camp roster, and one of 20 who were in Residency Training Camp at some point this year. Ryan will choose 18 players from the current roster to face Chinese Taipei on Oct. 1. The match, played at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif., will kick off at 1 p.m. live on ESPN2 as the conclusion to the first-ever Women's Nike Friendlies, taking place at the HDC from Sept. 28-Oct. 1. While 2006 Residency Training Camp came to an end in mid-September, the U.S. team will return for the pre-match training camp to the familiar surrounding of The HDC where the USA was encamped from April until a few weeks ago. The USA will finish its 2006 schedule of domestic friendly matches on Oct. 8 at the University of Richmond against Iceland. That game kicks off at 2 p.m. ET live on ESPN2. ?
