CHICAGO — Colorado continues to churn out excellent women soccer players. 

The U.S. Women's National Team announced its 27-person 2021 training camp roster on Wednesday and four from our state were invited to participate. 

Lindsey Horan (Golden), Jaelin Howell (Fossil Ridge), Mallory Pugh (Mountain Vista) and Sophia Smith (Fossil Ridge) are all on the team. 

The training camp will take place in Orlando, Florida from Jan. 9-22. It will include two games against Colombia on Jan. 18 and Jan. 22. Those will be nationally televised on FS1 and ESPN2.
