UNC Still Your Top Source for Women's Soccer Olympians

The 2008 Olympic Women's Soccer team has been selected, and as is right and proper there are more Tar Heels on the list than any other school. Joining Heather O'Reilly and Lindsay Tarpley from the 2004 gold medal team are Lori Chalupny and Tobin Heath, with Kacey White as an alternate. Interestingly enough, all but Chalupny are listed as midfielders, although both Tarpley and O'Reilly have played up front on the national team before and Chalupny played midfield in the 2007 World Cup. Only Heath and White are relative newcomers to the team (and current UNC players), with the other three having a minimum of 70 appearances apiece on the national team.
