The Stanford women's soccer team apparently is well set in the goalkeeper position for years to come.
The 2013 roster will include returning keepers in senior Emily Oliver and redshirt senior Aly Gleason, plus incoming freshman Jane Campbell -- a member of the U.S. U-20 National Team.
The Cardinal also just received a commitment from Australian-American Penelope Edmonds, who'll arrive in 2015.
According to Travis Clark of ESNN, Edmonds has been in camp with the Australian U-20 team, capped at the U-16 and U-17 age groups, and last season trained with the full women's side during their tour of the United States at the end of 2012.
"I decided to commit to Stanford because, for me, it offers the best of both worlds," she told TopDrawerSoccer.com. "I wanted to go to a school that offered rigorous academics as well as a top soccer program, and Stanford does just that. I felt it was the right fit for me minutes after stepping on campus, and really bonded with the girls and coach (Paul) Ratcliffe, coach (Jay) Cooney and coach (Nicole) Van Dyke."
Stanford's location also appealed to Edmonds, who currently lives in New York.
"Coming from the Northeast, I have always dreamed about living in California and the campus reminds me a lot of Australia, where my parents are from and where all my relatives live," she said. "Plus who doesn't love the beautiful weather."
Edmonds aspires to play in a World Cup, Olympics and hopefully capture a national title while playing college soccer.
In related news, forward Taylor Uhl, who announced that she was transferring out of Minnesota in April, may be headed to Stanford.
The Cardinal is on a short list of choices for the heralded scorer, who led the Golden Gophers in scoring her first two years.
She attended high school in Eden Prairie, Minn. and has scored 36 goals with 13 assists the past two years.
"I respect and understand Taylor's decision to transfer," Minnesota coach Stefanie Golan said. "We wish her the best as she continues her education and athletic career elsewhere."
Minnesota was 20-17-4 during her playing career.
A total of 39 American universities were named last week as winners of the U.S. Olympic Achievement Award, honoring schools with current student-athletes who won Olympic medals last year, and/or coaches that led medal-winning teams.
Among those schools, 18 had coaches and/or athletes with Olympic ties in aquatic sports.
The Olympic medal was the only stipulation for inclusion to the list.
Stanford had the most names with Olympic medal-winning ties on the list with five. Annika Dries, Melissa Seidemann and Maggie Steffens won gold in women's water polo, while Kristian Ipsen picked up a bronze in the men's three-meter synchro diving event. And Rick Schavone was included as coach of the USA Diving team.
