PULLMAN, Wash. -- Washington State sophomore Molly Alexander has been named to the Canadian Under-20 Women's National Team training camp squad by head coach Ian Bridge. The camp began Dec. 28 and continues through Jan. 8 in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.
Alexander makes her second appearance at a U-20 training camp after participating in a camp in February 2005. The Vancouver native continues to be active in the Canadian national team system after playing on the U-16 and U-17 teams and being a member of the U-19 national team pool.
"Once again we are excited for Molly to get the opportunity to be in an international setting," said WSU Head Soccer Coach Matt Potter. "Molly's maturity as a player and continued hard work makes this a well deserved opportunity. I know Molly will represent not only her family but our Cougar soccer family well. We all wish her the best for the camp and the future."
Alexander is one of 20 players invited to attend the camp as the team prepares for the 2005 Under-20 Women's Confederation of North and Central American and Caribbean Football (CONCACAF) Qualifying Tournament in Veracruz, Mexico Jan. 18-27.
Alexander made 11 starts in 19 appearances in the Cougar midfield, taking eight shots and tallying one goal, the first of her collegiate career, in WSU's 2005 campaign.
