Bowling Green, Ky. — The Western Kentucky University soccer team will be without leading goal scorer Mallory Outerbridge for the 2008 campaign after being named to the under-20 Canadian National Team camp this past week.

“We are extremely excited for Mallory’s participation with the Canadian National Team program,” said head coach Jason Neidell. “It is wonderful to see the support she has garnered from her teammates here. We are very proud of her.”

Outerbridge led the Lady Toppers with eight goals and five assists for a total of 21 points during the 2007 season and helped WKU to its first regular-season Sun Belt Conference championship and the overall number one seed in the conference tournament.

The Regina, Saskatchewan, native, has been chosen by the Canadian Soccer Association to compete in a residency camp in Vancouver, B.C., from September through November, in preparation for the FIFA World Cup, Nov. 15 through Dec. 8th.

“Mallory will sit out the season while in residency preparing for the World Cup, but will ultimately return to WKU with incredible international experience that will help our program long-term,” stated Neidell. “The benefits for Mallory’s career, as well as our own program, are fantastic.”

The Lady Toppers begin the regular season against Ole Miss on Aug. 22. The match is slated to begin at 6 p.m. (CST) at the WKU Soccer Complex.
