Four UCLA Players Called into U.S. U-23 WNT Camp

April 9, 2013

UCLA junior Jenna Richmond and sophomores Abby Dahlkemper, Sarah Killion and Samantha Mewis have been selected to the U.S. Under-23 Women's National Team training camp from April 13-20 at The Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif.

The camp will be held concurrently with a U.S. Under-20 Women's National Team camp, and the two squads will scrimmage each other on April 16 at 10 am PT and on April 19 at 4 pm PT.

The Under-23s are coming off a tournament victory at the Four Nations Tournament. Mewis had a goal and assist in the team's 6-0 win over Sweden.

U.S. head coach Randy Waldrum has named 21 players for the event and may add several more before the camp commences. The roster features 10 players from the U.S. team that won the 2012 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup in Japan, including Mewis and Killion.

All four Bruins at the camp earned All-Pac-12 honors in 2012, with Dahklemper and Killion receiving first-team acclaim, and Mewis earning second-team honors. Dahklemper and Killion were also first-team NSCAA All-Region honorees.
