Kgoale Participates in South African Training Camp

July 31, 2017

RUSTON – With the first fall practice for the Louisiana Tech women’s soccer team set to get underway in a week at the Lady Techster Soccer Complex, defender Nomvula Kgoale was recently able to get her training started earlier.

The native of Polokwane, South Africa was invited to participate with the South African Senior Women’s National Team (nickname Banyana Banyana) training camp which was held in Johannesburg from July 23-28.

Kgoale burst onto the scene last season as a junior college transfer for the Lady Techsters. The defender made a huge impact, earning second team All-Conference USA and second team NSCAA All-Central Region honors.

After missing the first four matches of the season, she saw action in 15 games with 13 starts coming at center back, totaling two goals on just 10 shot attempts while also being part of seven shutouts on the back line.

South Africa has qualified and played in the last two Olympic Games in the United Kingdom (2012) and Brazil (2016).
