Four Bruins have been selected to participate in the U.S. Under-23 Women's National Team training camp, which will take place May 11-18 at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, Calif.
Joining the U-23s once again are sophomore defender Abby Dahlkemper, junior midfielder Jenna Richmond and sophomore midfielders Sarah Killion and Samantha Mewis. The quartet participated in the last U-23 camp in April at The Home Depot Center and also played in the Four Nations Tournament earlier in the year, which the U.S. won.
All four Bruins earned All-Pac-12 honors in 2012, with Dahklemper and Killion receiving first-team acclaim, Mewis earning second-team honors and Richmond earning honorable mention acclaim. Dahklemper and Killion were also first-team NSCAA All-Region honorees.
