The U.S. under-20 women's national team, which was dominated by collegians and high school seniors, recently completely a six-game camp in College Station, Texas, and played three games against college opposition, all 2006 NCAA Tournament teams.

For the second year in a row, BYU beat the U-20s. Katie Fellows scored twice to give the Cougars a 2-0 win over the U-20s. BYU is now 7-0 in offseason action.

In the U-20s' next game, they beat SMU, 5-0, and they then concluded their stay with a 3-3 tie with host Texas A&M. The Aggies jumped out to a 3-1 lead thanks to a goal by Melissa Garey and two goals by Ashlee Pistorius, but the U-20s recovered to earn a tie thanks to goals by North Carolina-bound Rachel Given in the 85th minute and Florida's Ashlee Elliot with 50 seconds left in the game. Portland-bound Elli Reed score the first U.S. goal.

U-20 coach Jillian Ellis brought in 22 players for the three matches. The team is in very early preparations for qualifying to the 2008 U-20 Women's World Cup to be held in Chile. Players born on or after Jan. 1, 1988, are eligible for the next U-20 World Cup. Ellis called in two players from Texas A&M: goalkeeper Kristin Arnold and midfielder Whitney Hooper. The majority of the roster was '88s and '89s. Two players born in 1990 are high school juniors: midfielder Teresa Noyola and forward Rachel Wood.
