    Three USC freshmen were engaged in international action last week, representing three different countries at the FINA Youth World Championships in Madrid. When the waters finally calmed, two Women of Troy finished their trips standing on the podium. Team USA's Brianna DaBoub will bring a gold medal back to Troy, while Canada's Hayley McKelvey boasts a silver after the two Trojans squared off in the title match yesterday. USC freshman goalie Victoria Chamorro also gleaned some great international experience as a member of the Brazilian team at the tournament.

    The final match between the United States and Canada was a tight one, finishing with the Americans holding a 5-4 victory. That wrapped up an undefeated 6-0 effort by Team USA at the tournament. DaBoub scored two goals during the run, which saw the United States face and beat Hungary, South Africa, Germany, the Netherlands and Greece before the title match versus Canada. McKelvey finished as the Canadian's third leading scorer in the tourney, punching in nine goals total, including one in the gold-medal game. Canada beat Australia, New Zealand, Russia, Italy and Hungary on the way into the final, notching three one-goal wins during that stretch. Brazilian Chamorro would not wind up facing off against her Trojan teammates during the tournament, as Brazil's competition had them up against Japan, Greece, Italy, Germany and New Zealand.
