Jan. 28, 2005
Fullerton, Calif. - Cal State Fullerton sophomore goalkeeper Karen Bardsley has been selected to be a part of the England Senior Women's National Team for an international friendly against Italy on Feb. 17 at Milton Keynes Dons FC.
Bardsley previously spent the summer of 2003 with the England U-19 National Team, playing all 360 minutes in net and helping her side to a semifinal berth in the UEFA Women's U-19 Championships in Germany.
She was also called up for two international friendlies against Australia and Germany in August of that same year.
Bardsley, the 2002 Big West Conference Freshman of the Year and the 2004 Big West Goalkeeper of the Year, missed the team's first eight matches of this season recovering from a broken leg suffered against Washington on Sept. 14, 2003.
She was a first-team All-Big West selection after posting a 7-3-1 record in net with a 0.71 goals against average.
