Sparta Striker Called Into U-14 GNT Camp

One of Utah's youth players is training with the United States U-14 Girls' National Team this week at The Home Depot Center in Carson, California this week.

Darian Jenkins, a striker from Harriman, plays her club soccer for Sparta Premier and is among the 36 players invited into camp after competing at the 101-player U.S. U-14 Girls’ National Team I.D. Camp in Pomona, Calif earlier this summer.

In this week's training camp, run by U.S. national staff coach Mike Dickey, Jenkins will take part in a week of training and games against local club sides. All of the 36 players were born in 1995 and are looking toward competing in the 2012 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup.
