DURHAM, N.C.— Duke sophomore Taylor Racioppi made one of the toughest decisions in her life over the summer when she decided to focus on academic commitments instead of pursuing a spot on the United States Under-20 Women’s National Team that will compete in the U-20 World Cup this fall. 

Racioppi, who is a product of Ocean Township, N.J., took some time to talk with the Blue Devil Network about her decision and what when into the thought process. 

Duke is coming off totaling a 4-0 victory over 18th-ranked Virginia Tech Sunday and will next host Syracuse Sunday, Oct. 2 at 1 p.m.
