Washington State soccer’s Chelsea Harkins is currently participating in Canada’s Women’s National EXCEL camp.
Harkins is part of a group that arrived in Vaughan, Sunday with training beginning, Monday. A variety of sessions will take place through, Friday, December 19.
A native of Surrey, British Columbia, Harkins will be eligible for the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in 2016. A site for that event has yet to be determined. There are 20 players at the camp and Harkins is one of five forwards.
“Chelsea is a very talented young player in the Pac-12,” Cougar Head Coach Steve Nugent said. “She earned significant minutes for us this season and made an immediate impact, especially offensively. I am excited for her, not only for this opportunity, but for her future at Washington State.”
Harkins played in each of the Cougars’ 19 matches in 2014 as Washington State reached the postseason for the fourth-straight year. She recorded two goals as a freshman, including the game-winner in a 1-0 victory at then-No. 9 California.
