Princeton, NJ (KSDK) - A star soccer player from St. Louis s very close to making the women's Olympic team.
One of her last stops before London is a training camp at Princeton University.
The U.S. Women's Soccer Team is kind of nomadic. They travel the country holding training camps and playing games in preparation for the Olympics this summer. And that's why they are currently working out at Princeton University.
When this team rolls in to town, people take notice. Three to four hundred people showed up to watch the team practice Friday.
One of the women on the team commented it wasn't that long ago that some of their games had a smaller crowd.
One of the women working to stay on this team is Ladue grad Becky Sauerbrunn.
This team will soon get smaller and this camp will help coaches determine who makes the cut and will represent the U.S. in the London Olympics.
"You never know," said Sauerbrunn. "It all depends on what the coach needs, what positions she wants to have extra people in. So, I mean, it's really gonna come down to the wire. I don't feel either way, if I'm going to be on the team. I feel like it's kind of 50/50 right now. But I'm just trying not to get my hopes up too high 'cause if it turns out I'm not on the roster, it will be pretty tough. But I mean I'm training hard, so I feel like I'm putting myself in a good position."
While Sauerbrunn is cautiously optimistic, staff and people close to the team believe she will in fact be with the team in London. Her amount playing time remains to be seen.
