ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Junior defender Shelina Zadorsky (London, Ontario/St. Thomas Aquinas) of the University of Michigan women's soccer team has been invited to a training camp held by the Canadian Women's National Team, the Canadian Soccer Association announced. The year-end training and assessment camp will take place from Dec. 12-20 in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Zadorsky is one of 27 players that were named to the roster for the camp, including 12 players from Canada's bronze-medal winning team at the 2012 London Olympics. She served as team captain for the Canadian squad at the FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup in Japan last August, starting all three matches in group play on defense while scoring one goal. This is her first career call-up to the national team. Additionally, Zadorsky was recently named one of six nominees for Canadian U-20 Women's Player of the Year.
Zadorsky started 19 of 20 matches on defense for the Wolverines in 2012, scoring one goal and tallying three assists. She was an All-Big Ten first team selection after helping lead Michigan to the NCAA Sweet 16 and a third-place finish in the conference. Additionally, Zadorsky was part of a Maize and Blue defense that allowed only 17 goals all season, a new program record.
