Alex Morgan, Hope Solo heading to U.S. WNT training camp

Written by Jahmal Corner

The band is getting back together.

Abby Wambach, the Seattle Sounders ‘Lookers’ trio and 24 others were named to U.S. WNT training camp in preparation for their May 27 exhibition match against China.

The U.S. team will train at Princeton from May 10-25 for the next-to-last domestic match before the London Olympics.

The gathering will be a chance for the team to reconvene and also get a break from their extracurricular activities – like attending Redskins games, and pushing skincare products.

Two noteworthy additions to the camp are Oklahoma State goalkeeper Adrianna Franch and Boston College’s Kristen Mewis.

Franch has been terrorizing college soccer for the past three years and is the first Oklahoma State player to ever earn a spot on the U.S. National Team camp roster.

Mewis is an All-American who was also invited to WNT camp in February.

Here is the complete roster:

GOALKEEPERS (5): Nicole Barnhart, Adrianna Franch, Ashlyn Harris, Jill Loyden, Hope Solo
DEFENDERS (10): Rachel Buehler, Stephanie Cox, Whitney Engen, Meghan Klingenberg, Amy LePeilbet, Gina Lewandowski, Heather Mitts, Kelley O’Hara, Christie Rampone, Becky Sauerbrunn
MIDFIELDERS (9): Shannon Boxx, Tobin Heath, Lori Lindsey, Carli Lloyd, Kristie Mewis, Heather O’Reilly, Megan Rapinoe, Amy Rodriguez, Keelin Winters
FORWARDS (4): Lauren Cheney, Sydney Leroux, Alex Morgan, Abby Wambach

    Missed a Sounders trio in there.  Assuming you were talking Morgan, Solo, and Rapinoe?  There’s also Cox, Winters, and Leroux.

    You are correct that there are more than three on the Sounders. The ‘trio’ was a reference to this blog post:
