[PENN STATE WOMEN]
Maya Hayes, who played on the U.S. team that won the 2010 Under-20 Concacaf Women's Championship, and Hayley Brock, who represented the USA at the 2008 Under-17 Women's World Cup, head the group of five players Coach Erica Walsh is bringing to Happy Valley.

Also signed: Briana Hovington (Harwood, Md.), Emily Hurd (Sammamish, Wash.) and Taylor Schram (Canonsburg, Pa.).
 
Hayes was a teammate of Nittany Lion sophomore midfielder Christine Nairn with the U.S. U-20s.
 
"Maya is a rare mix of true athleticism and skill," said Walsh. "She is one of the best attacking players in the country right now and is an incredible athlete, but also has a good soccer brain.  Her time with the U.S. U-20 national team will only help to develop that and give her experience at the highest level.  We hope to have her make an impact for us right away."
 
Brock was named the 2009 NSCAA Youth All-American Player of the Year.
 
"A true goal-scorer out of Massachusetts, Hayley is an incredible athlete with an amazing nose for the goal," Walsh noted.  "She will absolutely cause defenders fits with her speed and ability with the ball and will be a force for us up front from the very beginning of her career."
