NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Vanderbilt standout Madiya Harriott participated in training camp with the Jamaican Women’s National Team from Jan. 14-21.
Harriott was one of 33 participants in the training camp held in Kingston and Montego Bay. The team is preparing for the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup, held in France from June 7-July 7.
A native of Davie, Florida, Harriott is coming off her sophomore season with the Commodores. She played in 16 games this past season. She started six games this season, with all of those starts coming during the Dores’ 16-game unbeaten streak.
In her freshman season, Harriott played in 17 games coming off the bench for the Commodores. She registered one goal in the team’s 1-0 victory over LSU in her freshman season.
Harriott entered training camp with an abundance of national team experience after spending time on the Jamaican U-17 and U-20 teams.
“It was an honor to be picked to come to training camp,” Harriott said. “We qualified for the World Cup in June, and the World Cup is the biggest stage in soccer, and it is such an honor to be called up to the full team camp for the first time.”
Jamaica became the first Caribbean team to qualify for the World Cup after defeating Panama, 4-2, on penalties in their third-place playoff match at the 2018 Concacaf Women’s Championship at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas.
