DURHAM, N.C. – Duke University incoming freshman Toni Payne will head to Carson, Calif., from Aug. 4-12 to train with the U.S. Under-20 Women’s National Team at the U.S. Soccer National Training Center at StubHub Center.  Due to this training, Payne will miss the first six days of preseason practice with Duke.

During this training session, the USA will face Japan on Thursday, Aug. 8 at 4:00 p.m. and on Sunday, Aug. 11 at 12:00 p.m., with both contests taking place on field No. 3 (David Vanole Field).  

Payne, who was the 2013 Gatorade Alabama Player of the Year, scored 47 goals and registered 35 assists this past season, leading Oak Mountain High School (22-4-2) to the Class 6A state championship game. Payne was the 2012 Birmingham News Player of the Year. She concluded her prep soccer career with 141 goals and 92 assists.  Payne was named to the preseason TopDrawerSoccer All-Freshman team earlier this week.
