U.S. Soccer: Young squad heads to Australia Cup
December 28th, 1999 12AM



U.S. women's assistant coaches Lauren Gregg and Jay Hoffman will lead a young women's national team to the Australia Cup as the veteran players continue to negotiate a contract with U.S. Soccer. Seven players on the 18-player roster will seek their first cap in games against the Czech Republic (Jan. 7), Sweden (Jan. 10) and Australia (Jan. 13). The four-team, six-game tournament will kick off the U.S. team's Olympic preparations with the first games of 2000. Twelve of the players played college soccer last season, three (Nandi Pryce, Aleisha Cramer and Veronica Zepeda) are high school seniors poised to enter college next fall and just three are out of college (Thori Bryan, Michelle French and Siri Mullinix). Leading the way is Santa Clara forward Mandy Clemens, who swept the two major collegiate post-season player of the year awards, the Missouri Athletic Club Player of the Year award and the Hermann Trophy.
