It was a huge surprise when (national team coach Jenny Lang Ping) asked me to come and train. I wasn't really out there with the impression that I was going to make any training team.

I don't think there's an answer that describes what it would mean to be able to represent the U.S. in a tournament like that. I'm at a loss for words when I think about it.

You have your tools, but at the same time, you have to start over and learn how to use them the right way for international play, because this is the elite of the elite. So, it's definitely a huge jump.

I wanted to keep playing, but I wasn't quite sure how that was going to happen.
