SUNRISE, Fla. - Stanford freshman Mariah Nogueira has been called up to the United States Under-23 national team and is training with the squad during a camp that will last until March 14.

She was the Pac-10 Conference's Newcomer of the Year and a first-team all-conference choice.
Nogueira is one of 24 players in camp under coach Bill Irwin, who selected mostly underclassmen to his young squad.
