National team adds Schwoy for 4 games

April 04, 1997|By Lowell Sunderland

Former McDonogh soccer star Laurie Schwoy, now completing her freshman year at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, has been added to the U.S. women's national soccer team for four games this spring.

Schwoy, The Sun's Female Athlete of the Year in 1995-96 and a three-time All-Metro soccer player, quickly became the Tar Heels' central midfielder last fall. She set up the team's winning goal in overtime against Notre Dame, giving North Carolina the national championship. She also scored the game-winner against Santa Clara in the semifinals.

Schwoy, 19, who also is on the U.S. under-20 team, has been called as a substitute for national-team games against France on April 24 and 27 in Greensboro, N.C., and Tampa, Fla., as well as games against England on May 9 and 11 in San Jose, Calif., and Portland, Ore.
