Dons starting goalkeeper Madalyn Schiffel ’16 joined the U.S. Women’s National Soccer development team this spring for the second consecutive year.
Schiffel started all 20 games for the Dons this season and posted six shutouts. She trained in April with the women’s under-20 team at the Olympic Training Center in San Diego, where the country’s top prospects are invited for intensive professional coaching.
“Playing at the highest level is always good for your game. I’m excited to compete there,” Schiffel said about the weeklong camp. “I think things are going great.”
“Right now, it’s all about building confidence and showing the coaches I’m learning what they’re teaching me and improving,” she said.
Schiffel has her sights set on breaking into the U.S. women’s under-23 squad and then the U.S. Women’s National Team and competing internationally.
