Noyola and O'Hara Head To Park City For CONCACAF Qualifying
June 10, 2008
Cardinal incoming freshman Teresa Noyola and sophomore Kelley O'Hara have been named as two of the 24 players that will head to Park City, Utah for a U-20 National team training camp from June 8-13, which will serve as the final preparation before the squad enters CONCACAF Qualifying for the 2008 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup.
The eight-team 2008 CONCACAF Women's Under-20 Championship will feature eight teams broken into two groups of four teams each. The USA will face Trinidad & Tobago (June 18), Cuba (June 20) and Mexico (June 22) in Group A play. Group B features Canada, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Jamaica.
The top three finishers in the qualifying tournament will earn berths to the U-20 Women's World Cup being held Nov. 19-Dec. 7 in Chile.
O'Hara, a Fayetteville, GA. native, is one of the two players on the roster that were on the U.S team that took fourth at the 2006 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup. O'Hara scored two goals in the tournament and was one of the USA's top players in Russia.
Noyola, a Palo Alto, Calif. native, is coming off of a week in which she was named the 2007-08 Gatorade National Girls Soccer Player of the Year and the 2008 Parade All-American High School Girls Soccer Player of the Year. Noyola is the third-youngest member of the U-20 Women's National team and has had nine appearances on the field with the group.
'We have gotten faster, better playing back-to-goal and have excellent team depth, which is one of the main strengths of this team,' said Head Coach Tony DiCicco. 'We have a number of players who could be starters and I'm hoping that our depth will allow us to play well because we will have to play five games in 11 days during qualifying and hopefully win the tournament.'
