COLORADO SPRINGS, C.O. - The Under-19 and Under-17 Junior Women’s National Teams are preparing for international competition beginning next week. The Under-19 Team will travel to Santiago, Chile to play the Chilean Junior National Team as well as top local clubs. The Under-17 Team will head to Holland to compete in the DOMO International Easter Tournament.

The Under-19 squad recently finished a four game test series against Canada held at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, CA. USA finished 1-3 for the series, but were able to continue to grow and develop as a team on the field. Three talents that were unable to attend the Canadian series, will be joining the team traveling to Chile. Maddy Carpenter (Wilbraham, MA), Emily Wold (Freehold, NJ) and Maxine Fluharty (Millsboro, DE) were touring with the Under-21 National Team in Europe during the Canadian series.

The schedule for the U-19 tour is as follows:

  • Saturday, April 23 at 4pm (local time) USA v Chile PWCC (Prince of Whales Country Club)
  • Sunday, April 24 at 12pm (local time) USA v Chile Manquehue Club

The team will compete against top club teams in Holland and the Irish Junior National Team leading up to the DOMO International Easter Tournament.
