Fawcett, Glass and Harmotto Named to Final Roster
Sadly, we are not there. But three former Penn State players — Nicole Fawcett, Alisha Glass, and Christa Harmotto — are, as part of the final U.S. Women’s National Team roster for the 2011. Penn State’s Head Coach Russ Rose also is there, as the designated team leader/manager.
Hats off and good luck to Nicole, Alisha, Christa, and Coach Rose, and to the entire U.S. team, which ranks second in the world, trailing only Olympic Games champion Brazil.
