TEMPE, Ariz. – Arizona State University soccer player Lucy Lara is one of 21 players currently in the Mexico women’s national team’s training camp, which is taking place at the Mexico Football Federation’s High Performance Center in Mexico City. The camp, which started on July 10, runs through July 20.
Lara, who will be a redshirt sophomore on this year’s Sun Devil squad, was one of seven midfielders called into the team’s training camp. Mexico is preparing for the 2014 CONCACAF Women's Championship, which will determine the Confederation’s representatives at the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada.
Lara made her Sun Devil debut last season after being sidelined with a knee injury incurred prior to the 2012 campaign. She played in 13 games in 2013 and contributed a pair of assists.
A 2012 graduate of Hamilton High School in Chandler, Lara entered the Sun Devil program with an abundance of international experience.
Lara is the third Sun Devil player to be called into a national team’s training camp this summer. Last month rising juniors McKenzie Berryhill and Cali Farquharson both participated in the U.S. Under-23 Women’s National Team training camp in Chula Vista, Calif.
