Kealsie Robles Promoted to USWNT
By ODU Athletics
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Former Old Dominion field hockey goalkeeper Kealsie Robles has been added to the U.S. Senior Women's National Team, as announced by USA Field Hockey on Sunday.
Robles, who graduated with a degree in Psychology this past weekend, has already earned her first career cap with the Senior National Team. In September, Robles received a brief call-up for the Sompo Cup in Japan, where she played in two games. Previously a member of the U.S. Development and U-21 squads, Robles is one of four goalkeepers on the senior roster.
ODU now has two alum on the senior team. Danielle Grega was added to the team in July.
At ODU, Robles started 51 games during her four-year career. The Yorktown native won 22 career games with five shutouts and a 2.11 goals against average. Over the course of her four years, Robles earned both All-State and All-Region honors.
"With the sudden retirements of some of our goalkeepers it was special to see that Kealsie was willing to join us during college season," said USWNT head coach Janneke Schopman. "She impressed me in Japan as how well she fit into the team without knowing anyone. Secondly showing her dedication, willingness and ability to graduate early to join our team gives me confidence that she will be a good fit for our program."
