WASHINGTON - Georgetown University freshman Rachel Corboz (Green Brook, N.J./Pingry) was one of 28 women's soccer players selected to train with the United States Under-20 Women's National Team as that squad begins its 2015 programming. The training camp will be held in Sanford, Fla. from Jan. 24-31.
Corboz was one of 18 college players and 10 who play for youth clubs selected to the training camp under the direction of U-20 Head Coach Michelle French.
This age group is focusing on qualifying for the 2016 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup, which has an age cut-off of players born on or after Jan. 1, 1996.
Rachel Corboz, the younger sister of current senior and Georgetown's all[-time leading scorer, Daphne Corboz, had an impressive first season on the Hilltop, earning All-BIG EAST Second Team and All-BIG EAST Rookie honors. She finished third on the team in scoring with four goals and eight assists for 16 points.
In addition, Corboz was selected to the National Soccer Coaches Association of American All-Northeast Region Third Team.
The USA will enjoy a unique match-up during this camp as Frauen-Bundesliga side Bayern Munich comes to Florida to play the U-20s on Jan. 27 at 6 p.m. ET at the Seminole Soccer Complex in Sanford.

The USA will also play the University of Florida during the camp on Jan. 30 at 7 p.m. ET at the Seminole Soccer Complex.
