TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Three members of the Florida State women’s soccer program were called up for the U.S. U-20 Women’s National Team training camp beginning Saturday, December 12 in Sunrise, Fla. Tiffany McCarty, Toni Pressley and Casey Short will represent the Seminoles in the upcoming camp.
All three individuals were with the U-20 squad back in July of this year participating in a week long training camp in Boulder, Colo. The U.S. went 2-0-0 in a pair of friendly competitions against the Canadian U-20 team over the summer outscoring their neighbors to the north by a combined 10-1 margin. In the first match, Pressley netted a pair of goals as she was one of two players to score twice for the U.S. in an 8-0 victory.
McCarty and Short have also contributed during their time with the U.S. U-20 team registering a goal each in competition played earlier this year.
Along with three student-athletes from Florida State, the U-20 roster also includes a trio from Portland, two each from Boston College, Stanford and UCLA and a total of five high school players. Seven of the 22 total players called into camp hail from the Atlantic Coast Conference.
