She also played at the Torneo 4-Naciones event in Chile just prior to the under-20 World Cup, also in Chile, where she netted another pair of goals. She also had a short stint with the senior national team, playing at the Four Nations Tournament in China in January, 2008, and also started six games for the Vancouver Whitecaps in the W-League. A student at Sullivan Heights Secondary School, the 17-year-old will join the University of Wisconsin women’s team in September, 2009.
