Cloee is recovering from an injury and will almost certainly not participate in this camp.

She was held out of the last two College Spring games.

Thanks for the info, Larry!

Do you know if this is the same injury that kept her out of much of the fall College season?

I think it's the same injury recurring.

Well, I was gratefully wrong on the seriousness of Cloee's injury.

After sitting for three Spring games, she started and played the entire game for Portland today against the u23 National team, and was a dominant force in the back.

The u23's won that game 2-1 on a late score. a very well played game.
