Meharg on Powley: "Lauren is stepping up her game. The opportunity to play with the U.S. National Team and with the U-21 team can only help her. She is an incredible athlete. She is strong, she is fast, she has vision, she has skills. Lauren has been working on getting shots on goal, but she is the very example of a two-time first team All-American."
