Four Stanford soccer players will be competing for the United States team at the 2014 CONCACAF Women's U-20 Championship that begins Thursday in the Cayman Islands.
The CONCACAF field is divided into two groups of four. The group winners advance to the final and earn automatic berths to the FIFA event. The second-place finishers in each group play off for the other World Cup spot.
The U.S. was drawn into Group A and plays Costa Rica on Thursday, Jamaica on Saturday, and Guatemala on Monday, Jan. 13.
The championship final and third-place matches are Jan. 19. The entire tournament will be played at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex in George Town.
All four players were regular starters for Stanford (15-6-1), which advanced to the third round of the NCAA tournament for the eighth consecutive season.
