Baylor Soccer’s Crowther Back Training with Mexico’s U-20 National Team

WACO, Texas – For the fourth time in her soccer career, Baylor sophomore forward Jackie Crowther trained with a Women’s Mexican National Team.

One of 24 players to participate, Crowther spent time in Mexico and in the U.S. practicing with Mexico’s U-20 Women’s National Team as the squad prepares for its competition in the 2016 World Cup in New Guinea that will be held from Nov. 13 through Dec. 3.

The training was done at the High Performance Centre of the Mexican Football Federation in Mexico City, Mexico, and included exhibition games in South Bend, Indiana, against DePaul, Michigan State and Notre Dame.

Last winter, Crowther trained with the team in preparation for the CONCACAF U-20 World Cup Qualifiers.  During the summer of 2015, she played for Mexico in the NTC Invitational in Carson, California.  The Temecula, California, native also played in the 2014 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup in Costa Rica, started in all four games and scored one goal in a 4-0 victory over Colombia.

During her freshman season with the Bears, Crowther played in all 19 games, tallying seven points on three goals, including one game-winner, and one assist in 792 minutes of action.

Crowther and the Bears begin preseason camp next week before hosting exhibition matches against the Houston Dash on Aug. 11 and Houston Baptist on Aug. 13.  Baylor’s season opener is on Aug. 19 at Detroit Mercy and the home opener is on Aug. 26 against Purdue.
