CLEMSON, S.C. – Junior defender Megan Bornkamp and former Tiger goalkeeper and current member of Gotham FC/Brisbane Roar FC Hensley Hancuff, have been named to the U.S. U-23 Women’s National Team roster as they are set to compete against France’s U-23 Women’s National Team, U.S. Soccer announced Thursday. The 20-player roster consists of eight professionals and 12 collegiate players.
Bornkamp, a two-time All American, three-time All Atlantic Region, three-time All ACC recipient and United Soccer Coaches Division I Women’s Player of Distinction Award winner looks to provide the U.S. depth and experience on the defensive end alongside some of the country’s best.
Hancuff was an integral part of the Tigers’ success during her time in Clemson. She helped lead the Tigers to two NCAA Tournament appearances, including an Eight Eight run in her junior season. The Third-Team All ACC member tallied 95 saves in her two seasons and is currently fifth in program history in single season goals allowed average (.79). She is a member of the NJ/NY Gotham FC squad and is currently on loan with Brisbane Roar FC, starting in goal for the Lions.
Bornkamp and Hancuff will take on France on Feb. 17 and 20 at Clairefontaine, France’s famed National Training Center located outside of Paris. Both games will take place at 11 a.m. ET. For coverage and updates follow @ussoccer_YNT.
