MEMPHIS, Tenn. - A trio of Memphis women's soccer players are among 23 players summoned to Burnaby, BC for a Women's National EXCEL Program camp ahead of the 2014 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup.
Senior captain Kylie Davis along with sophomore forward Valerie Sanderson are regulars for Canada U-20 camps. Incoming freshman Sessen Stevens is among the 23 players to take part in the camp.
“It’s always an honor to have any of our players represent their country,” Lady Tigers head coach Brooks Monaghan said. “Anytime we have student-athletes play at this level, it is a big honor for our university and our soccer program. Obviously, all three players are well-deserving of this opportunity and we wish them nothing but the best in this camp.”
The team assembled on June 24 with camp training have started on June 25. The camp runs through July 9 before the team continues preparations with two friendlies. The Canada U-20 squad will take on Mexico in Mexico City in a camp that goes from July 16-21.
Canada plays host to the 2014 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup. Action begins August 8 with Canada taking on Ghana.
