– Jaime Turrentine and Madison Salom of the Saint Mary’s women’s soccer team are currently in Corona, Calif., participating in the Philippine Senior Women’s National Football Team US Training camp.
The camp runs from July 24 – August 6, as the Philippine Football Federation (PFF) will compete in the Asean Football Federation (AFF) Women’s Championship 2013 at Mandalay, Myanmar from September 9-22. Participating teams include Japan U23, Myanmar, Laos, Philippines and Indonesia.
“To be able to represent the Philippine National Team is incredibly humbling,” said Salom. “I would be so privileged to play with the best team and learn from new coaches and teammates.”
Turrentine and Salom are participating in the US Camp. The pre-tournament camp runs from July 24- August 6 in Corona.
I’m really excited to have the opportunity to train with the National Team,” said Turrentine. “It’s another chance for me to learn and continue to grow and develop as a soccer player… It would be such an honor to represent the Philippines, especially since that’s where my Grandfather is from.
The camp will be used to determine the final 23 players that will compose the team for the AFF Women’s Championship in 2013.
