Pregnant Rampone to miss national team camp

[U.S. WOMEN] Four members of WPS champion Sky Blue FC were called up to the U.S. women's national team camp that will take place Sept. 21-Oct. 2 at the Home Depot Center. Not included in the squad is Sky Blue FC player-coach Christie Rampone, the U.S. national team captain who is three months pregnant.

"It's been an eventful year to say the least," said Rampone, who is expecting in March, "but the timing of this pregnancy is perfect because I was able to finish off this amazing first season and hopefully get back in time to make a major contribution to Sky Blue FC in 2010."

The four Sky Blue FC players called up were defender Megan Schnur and midfielder Yael Averbuch, Kacey White and Heather O'Reilly, whose goal gave Sky Blue FC the title with a 1-0 win over Los Angeles in the championship and earned her the MVP award.

Chicago Red Stars midfielder Brittany Klein, University of North Carlina goalie Ashlyn Harris and Schnur are the three uncapped players.

All but three players called up are WPS players.

The other collegians are UCLA forward Lauren Cheney and North Carolina midfielder Tobin Heath, both 2008 Olympic gold-medalists.

Veteran midfielder Lindsay Tarpley will miss her first camp in years as she is out after suffering an ACL tear during training with the Red Stars at the end of the WPS season
