WASHINGTON - Georgetown University women's soccer standout Daphne Corboz (Green Brook, N.J./Watchung Hills) was among a group of 26 players selected to come together at the United States Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, Calif. for training camp, which will be held from June 7-14.
The entire roster is made up of current collegiate players or players who played their senior seasons this past fall. Corboz was one of eight midfielders selected for the training camp by U-23 Women's National Team Head Coach Steve Swanson.
This is the third time that Corboz has trained with the U-23 team, as she was first called up in April 2013 and then trained with the squad again in January 2014.
Corboz is a two-time All-American. She was named the BIG EAST Midfielder of the Year in 2013 and led the team with 27 points last season. Corboz, who was also a unanimous All-BIG EAST First Team selection and a preseason candidate for the Hermann Trophy, scored seven goals and had 13 assists. She missed the first five games of the season with an injury, but was among the most dominating players in the BIG EAST upon her return.
Corboz was named the BIG EAST Offensive Player of the Year in 2012 and was a First Team All-American in 2012. In just three years on the Hilltop, Corboz is the all-time leader in goals scored (35) and ranks second all-time in points scored (92).
Corboz is one of several Georgetown players who have had the opportunity to train with a U.S. National Team during their time on the Hilltop, including former All-American selections Ingrid Wells (C'11) and Emily Menges (C'14), as well as Kelly D'Ambrisi (B'12), a three-time All-BIG EAST selection.
Georgetown closed out the 2013 season with a 16-3-2 record, tying the school single-season record for wins in a season, set during the 2012 season when the Hoyas went 16-4-3. The Hoyas were selected to the play in the NCAA Tournament for the third time in four years and reached the second round. The team set a school record with 58 goals scored and was ranked among the top three in the country in scoring offense.
