Lanter Called To US Under-20 National Team Training Camp

Saturday, June 15, 2013

Recent Lee University signee and Soddy-Daisy High School graduate, Summer Lanter, was notified earlier this week that she had been called into the upcoming training camp for the United States Under-20 National Team in July in Portland, Ore.

 

Lanter highlights an incoming freshman class, that coach Matt Yelton called “one of the most talented in his career.” Lanter was earlier recognized as the Gatorade Tennessee High School Player of the Year and was also the recipient of the Times Free Press Chattanooga Player of the Year award in 2012.

 

“Summer is lightning fast and finishes at speed with either foot,” said Josh Gray, Lanter’s club coach with FC Alliance. “If anyone loses the ball, she runs it down immediately. The problem she poses as a coach is she gets the ball and [her teammates] sometimes stop and watch.”

Lanter will join 29 other players from across the United States as head coach Michelle French is looking to build on the team’s recent success in Sweden. The camp will be held July 2-11 at the Nike Complex.

 

Yelton commented, “We are certainly very proud of Summer and believe she is fully deserving of the recognition of being called into a national training camp, and I believe this is just the start for her on a long road of success that she will encounter in the coming years.”

Trump - And Response

Hardly a day, even a moment, goes by when some news flash appears sharing what  Trump  said or did.
