MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – West Virginia University women’s soccer player Bry McCarthy will attend the Canadian Under-20 (U-20) Women’s National Team Camp Dec. 11-20, in Boca Raton, Fla.

An Ajax, Ontario, native, McCarthy is one of 23 players attending the 10-day training camp held on the campus of Florida Atlantic. The training camp will serve as preparation for the FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup, scheduled for July 13, 2010, in Germany. Team Canada will try to qualify for the Women’s World Cup in an eight-team confederation qualification starting Jan. 18, 2010, in Guatemala.

McCarthy recently completed her freshman season with the Mountaineers, helping the Mountaineers to a 10th-straight NCAA tournament appearance. She appeared in all 23 matches, scoring three goals and dishing out one assist as a rookie. McCarthy was named a CollegeSoccer360 Primetime Performer of the Week for her game-tying goal in a 1-1 draw at Virginia where she was named to the Virginia NIKE Soccer Classic All-Tournament Team.

West Virginia closed out the 2009 season with a 10-7-6 record, its 10th-consecutive 10-plus win season. The Mountaineers advanced to the NCAA second round for the seventh time in 10 years.
