AUBURN- Rising junior Katy Frierson of the Auburn soccer team has been selected as one of 17 players chosen to travel to Germany with the under-23 United States Women's National team. She joins the team after training with the under-20 squad in mid-March.
The squad, led by head coach Bill Irwin, will play three matches, beginning with a match against TSG Wieseck on Monday. Following Monday's match, the squad will square off against the German U-23 National Team on Wednesday in Glessen. The trip will conclude with a match against the South Korean U-20 National Team on Saturday in Marsburg.

She led the team in assists (10) and points (20) while chipping in five goals, three of which were game-winners. A First Team All-SEC selection for the second straight season, she was also recognized for being on the SEC All-Tournament Team, a NSCAA All-South Region First Team choice, a CoSIDA/ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District First Team selection, an Auburn Top Tiger and on the SEC Academic Honor Roll.
