National team call-up completes Harris' comeback

WOMEN'S NEWS ... North Carolina keeper Ashlyn Harris' call-up to the U.S. national team is one of women's soccer's great feel-good stories.

Along with UCLA forward Lauren Cheney and Carolina teammate Tobin Heath, both 2008 Olympic gold-medalists, Harris was one of three collegians picked to attend the national team camp that will take place Sept. 21-Oct. 2 at the Home Depot Center.

Harris' first call-up comes seven years after she burst on the international scene helping the USA win the inaugural Under-19 Women's World Cup.

Harris was a starter for the USA at both the 2002 and 2004 U-19 world championships, playing every minute of all 12 games during those tournaments, but her college career suffered several setbacks.

She redshirted in 2005 after tearing her right anterior cruciate ligament during her first practice with the Heels.

While training in June 2006 she suffered what appeared to be another season-ending knee injury, but she recovered to come on as a reserve in all six of Carolina's NCAA Tournament games -- and made several saves -- en route to its 2006 championship.

After splitting time with Anna Rodenbough in her first three seasons, Harris is for the first time UNC's undisputed starter.

* The Mexican national team beat TCU, 4-1, Tuesday night before 2,089 fans in Ft. Worth. The Tri Femenil previously lost to South Carolina, 2-0, and beat Kennesaw State, 5-0.
