MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – West Virginia University women’s soccer player Bry McCarthy will attend a second Canadian Under-20 (U-20) Women’s National Team Camp. The pre-qualification camp is scheduled for Jan. 11-18 in Tampa.
An Ajax, Ontario, native, McCarthy is one of 23 players attending the week-long training camp held on the campus of USF. She previous attended a camp last month in Boca Raton, Fla. The training camps 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. From the group of 23 players, 20 players will be selected for the final championship team that will represent Canada in Guatemala.
McCarthy helped West Virginia finish 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.
