CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- Sophomore defender Lindsey Kowal of the Harvard women's soccer team has been invited to the U.S. National Women's Under-21 camp, which will be held in Florida this spring.

Kowal, a native of East Meadow, N.Y., was honored on the All-Ivy League second team last season.  Kowal, who started all 15 games she appeared in, helped the Crimson win its second straight Ancient Eight title and advance to the NCAA postseason for the second time in as many years. Harvard completed the season 9-7-1 overall and 6-1 in Ivy play. 

Kowal, who assisted on the game-winning goal at Cornell Oct. 10, was a key figure of the Harvard defense, which surrendered only seven goals in seven Ivy League games.  An All-Ivy League honorable mention choice in 2008, Kowal has prior U.S. national team experience, having attended an Under-23 camp in June 2009.
