CHICAGO - Redshirt sophomore defender Kaleigh Riehl (Fairfax Station, Va.) has joined the U.S. Under-23 Women's National Team for a training camp, Nov. 28-Dec. 4, in Orlando, Fla. The training camp marks the fourth appearance for Riehl with the U.S. U-23 WNT.
Twenty-six players have been called into the camp, which includes 22 collegiate players and four NWSL players; Riehl is one of eight defenders on the roster.
During the 2017 Penn State women's soccer season, she started all 24 contests on the Nittany Lion backline and was a part of the Penn State defense that tallied 13 shutouts. Individually, Riehl led the team in minutes played (2,158) and she recorded her lone goal of the season in a 4-2 win at Arkansas on Aug. 25.
Earlier this week, Riehl was named to the United Soccer Coaches All-Midwest Region Second Team and last month she received All-Big Ten Second Team honors.
