Former Navarre soccer standout Emily Madril had an opportunity to compete in her second United States Under-20 Women’s National Team training camp, which took place Dec. 28-Jan. 3 at the IMG Academy in Bradenton.
It’s the second time she has been selected to participate in a national team camp. She attended a training camp last March as well.
A total of 30 players were at the camp, including 11 who play college soccer. Madril was the lone player from Florida State and personally selected by head coach Jitka Klimkova. She was one of nine defenders at the camp.
Madril completed her first college season in November, scoring a goal and dishing out four assists for a Seminoles team that went 13-7-1 and reached the third round of the NCAA tournament. It lost 2-0 to eventual national champion Stanford.
An early enrollee at Florida State – she graduated in December of 2016 – Madril finished her high school career at Navarre with 107 goals and 70 assists, number she accumulated despite not playing the second half of her senior season due to her early graduation. Madril was a two-time All-American in high school and the player of the year in the state as a junior.
