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.

GOALKEEPERS: Kristin Arnold (Texas A&M), Alyssa Naeher (Penn State), Kristin Olsen (USC).
DEFENDERS: Lauren Barnes (Arsenal FC, Calif.), Hannah Cerrone (Lewisboro Xtreme, Pa.), Kelly Eagan (Villanova), Nikki Marshall (Colorado), Lauren Wilmoth (UCLA).
MIDFIELDERS: Ashley Bowyer (Ohio State), Becky Edwards (Florida State), Kaley Fountain (Wake Forest), Kelly Henderson (Boston College), Whitney Hooper (Texas A&M), Teresa Noyola (MVLA Mercury, Calif.).
FORWARDS: Kiersten Dallstream (Washington State), Ashlee Elliot (Florida), Michelle Enyeart (Portland), Rachel Givan (Mississippi United), Laure Heyboer (Bloomfield Force, Mich.), Allie Sadow (Wake Forest), Brittney Steinbruch (Miami), Rachel Wood (Slammers FC, Calif.).
