KU Sophomore Robbins Participates in U-20 Canadian National Camp
July 12, 2010
ALSTON, Ont. –
Kansas sophomore midfielder Sarah Robbins has been invited to participate in a second camp for the U-20 Canadian National Team in Alston, Ont.
The camp began July 5 and is scheduled to conclude this week with 28 players vying for spots on the U-20 Canadian National Team. It is a second round of camps following two identification camps held in Surrey, B.C. and Vaughan, Ont. in May.
Robbins, a sophomore from Montreal, Quebec, played in all 22 matches as a freshman last season. She recorded a goal and an assist in 1,123 minutes on the field. She also participated in all five exhibition contests during the Jayhawks’ 2010 spring season.
“I am very proud of Sarah,” Kansas head coach Mark Francis said. “She made a lot of progress during the fall, especially in terms of the physical aspects of the game. I know she will represent KU well at these camps.”
Canada’s women’s U-20 team is preparing for the next FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup cycle in 2012. Players selected for this camp are all born in 1992 or 1993 and are thus eligible for the 2012 CONCACAF Women’s Under-20 Championship. The CONCACAF championship will serve as the qualification route for the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup 2012.
