A Pair of Toreros Named to Mexican National Team

March 31, 2010

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - A pair of University of San Diego women's soccer players have been named to the Mexican National team in the form of senior defender Natalie Vinti and sophomore defender Natalie Garcia.

Both players were on the sideline at the US vs. Mexico game this past Sunday with Vinti getting some action on the field. Both players are still listed on the roster but will not make the Mexican National Team's next trip to Utah because of academic obligations at USD.

Vinti, a 5-7 senior from San Diego, played a huge role in the Torero backfield this season, as she helped the team record eight shutouts and post a goal-against-average of 1.49. Vinti also scored a career-high three goals this season, while chipping in a pair of assists for eight points. Vinti helped lead USD to a second lace finish in the WCC and earn a trip to the first round of the NCAA Tournament. Vinti was named first-team All-WCC.

Garcia, a 5-7 sophomore from Valley Center, Calif., helped the Toreros defense post a 1.49 goals-against-average and eight shutouts this season. Garcia also helped lead the team to a second place finish in the WCC and earn a trip to the first round of the NCAA Tournament. Garcia recorded a pair of assists for two points this season.
