CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Goalkeeper Rebecca Holden (Fr., Fishing Creek, N.J.) has been selected to tour with the US Under-19 Junior National Squad in 2013.
The selection process began last summer at the 2012 National Futures Championship and Futures Elite Championship. In total, 102 athletes were selected from both events to attend the Junior National Camp, presented by Longstreth, and held at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, July 9-12. At the camp, athletes received daily tactical sessions from some of the top field hockey coaches in the country, followed by test matches in the evening.
From the Junior National Camp, a select number of athletes were invited to attend a winter training camp at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, Cali. Following the winter training camp, eighteen under-17 athletes and eighteen under-19 athletes were selected to represent the U.S. Junior National Squads on an international tour this spring.
Holden played in 10 games for the Cavaliers in her rookie campaign, amassing a 3-1 record. She recorded eight saves in the victory at William & Mary. She did not allow a goal in her final three appearances of the season and was a part of four team shutouts. She made four saves without allowing a goal in the final 29 minutes of the NCAA Tournament second round game against Princeton.
