Barrientos Selected to Train With Guatemalan National Team

Junior Jennifer Barrientos, a member of the URI women’s soccer team, was selected in November to participate in the Guatemalan National Team training camp.

A native of Reseda, Calif., Barrientos was one of 28 women picked to train with the team in January.

“This is an outstanding opportunity for Jenni, and we are excited for her,” URI head coach Michael Needham ’96 said of Barrientos, whose Guatemalan parentage gives her dual citizenship. “The chance to train and compete for a roster spot with your native country is not something that everyone gets, and we wish her the best of luck. She had an excellent season for us this year. This training camp, and the work we are doing in our own program, will ensure that she is ready for another great year as a senior next fall.”

Barrientos finished the 2012 season as URI’s leader in points with 15 (4 goals, 7 assists). She played in all 20 games for the Rams, starting 19 times. For her career, she has played 57 games and has five goals and 10 assists.

URI finished the season with an 11-8-1 record, 4-5-0 in the Atlantic 10. It was the team’s best finish since the 2007 season.
