Pet Names



We found out the other day that goalkeeper Nicole Barnhart had two cats while growing up, one named “Lilly” and another named “Scurry.” Who would have known that one day Barnhart would be saving shots from one and training next to the other? Barnhart was just 11 years old when Scurry debuted for the USA in 1993 (and five years old when Lilly first played for the USA), but Barnhart says the cats are still kicking and meowing. This has spurred us to find out if any other young players on the National Team had pets named after U.S. Women’s National Team players.
