WSU Soccer Summer Success
July 20, 2009
PULLMAN, Wash. - A pair of Washington State University women's soccer student-athletes spent time with United States national teams earlier this years and two-incoming freshman will compete for a national championship with their respective club team this week.
Forward Kiersten Dallstream, who won a gold medal as a member of the USA U-20 World Cup team last fall, competed with the Americans' U-23 team in England for a pair of matches against the host's U-23 squad earlier this month. Dallstream will be a senior for the Cougars in the fall and ranks sixth in WSU history with 17 goals.
Defender Ali Fenter, who was named to the All-Pacific-10 Conference Freshman Team last season, participated in the United States U-20 camp earlier this year.
Beginning, Tuesday, Caitlin Bresnahan and Ashley Loughmiller will play in the U.S. Youth Soccer U-18 National Championship in Lancaster, Mass.
Both Bresnahan and Loughmiller are incoming-freshman midfielders. Bresnahan is a member of the Pleasanton Rage and Loughmiller is on the roster for the Ohio Elite Soccer Academy.
'As we journey through the summer, it is great to hear about the continued success of our student-athletes,' WSU Head Coach Matt Potter said. 'Whether club, summer or national teams, our players being successful at the highest levels is great for our program and is an indication of the talent and year-round commitment of our players.'
