The Huskies and the U.S. National Team Throughout the years, the University of Connecticut women’s soccer program has established itself as one of the premier programs in the country. In addition to the postseason appearances and perennial player accolades, several Huskies throughout the years have participated on the highest level of women’s soccer competition with the U.S. National Teams. These players have traveled internationally and across the United States where they have exhibited their skills and talents. Sara Whalen, a 1997 UConn graduate, helped the U.S. Women’s National Team to take home the 1999 World Cup Championship title and the Silver Medal in the 2000 Summer Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia. Former Husky three-time All-American forward Mary-Frances Monroe has also made several national team appearances. Most recently, midfielder Meghan Schnur played with the U-19 US Team that competed in the FIFA World Championship in 2004. Additionally, Kristen Graczyk was called in three times in 2005 to participate in the Under-21 National Team camp. During the summer of 2009, Brittany Taylor was called up to play for the National Team, while Elizabeth Eng participated on the youth National Squad.
