Finishing Up...

The U.S. team finished its 17-day training camp this morning with a spirited hour-long session that ended with a four-team small-sided tournament featuring one field with big goals and goalkeepers and one with small goals. Awards were giving out for team champion, golden ball, golden glove, fair play and most spirited (Abby Wambach won that one). There were also some consolation awards for the teams that didn't...how shall we say... fare so well. It was a nice way to end a long, but extremely productive training camp. Above is the locker room before the final training. And before you think the players leave their cleats and guards nicely lined up after the previous training, that is the work of team equipment manager Andrew "A.D." Dessert. The A.D. stands for "All Day" because as we've said in the past, that's how he rolls.
