Harbison, Visalli Invited to U.S. U-23 Camp
Pepperdine has had multiple players called to train with the U-23 team this year.
The training camp is being held in Orlando, Fla. and will run Nov. 28-Dec. 4. U.S. U-23 head coach B.J. Snow called a total of 26 players into the camp, 22 from the collegiate ranks and four current NWSL players.
Harbison has previous experience in the U.S. National Team system as she was invited to a pair of U-20 camps in 2015. Harbison is one of eight defenders at the camp and is coming off of a season in which she was named the West Coast Conference Defender or the Year. She posted two assists this year as an attacking outside back, and helped anchor a Pepperdine defense that set a school record with 14 shutouts and was eighth in the nation with a 0.415 goals-against average.
Visalli is coming off the finest season of her stellar four-year career in Malibu and is making her first appearance in a U.S. National Team setting. The soon to be graduating senior is one of eight midfielders called into the camp. Visalli was named the WCC Player of the Year this season and is currently a semifinalist for the prestigious MAC Hermann Award, given to the top player in collegiate soccer each year.
The pair helped lead the Waves to a second-consecutive WCC title this year and an appearance in the second round of the NCAA Postseason for the third time in four years.
Pepperdine has an extensive history of players in the U.S. and several foreign national team systems, including four who have earned caps for their respective senior national teams. Currently, Pepperdine alum Lynn Williams has been competing for the U.S. Senior National Team. Former Wave Hannah Seabert was the most recent Pepperdine player to see time with the U-23 squad as she was in camp with the team this past January.
