Kowal Invited to U.S. Women's National Team Under-23 Camp

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Harvard defender Lindsey Kowal was recently invited to the U.S. Under-23 Women's National Team cap, held June 12-19 at the Premier Soccer Academies. Kowal, a rising sophomore, was one of 24 players and seven defensemen invited to the camp by head coach Bill Irwin. The squad is comprised entirely of collegiate-aged players.

Kowal, an All-Ivy League honorable mention selection last fall, started all 17 games she appeared in during her rookie season. A native of East Meadow, N.Y., Kowal helped Harvard win the Ivy League title and was a key member of the Crimson's defense that allowed only 18 goals in 18 games. Kowal and the Crimson reached the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2004.
