Former George Mason women’s soccer goalkeeper and assistant coach Jaime Pagliarulo has been selected to join the U.S. National Team for its upcoming trip to China.

The U.S. plays China Thursday, Jan. 11, in Pangyu, and Sunday, Jan. 14, in Hangzhou. The Mason four-year letter winner’s lone appearance with the full national team came May 4, 1997, when she relieved starting keeper Briana Scurry during a 6-1 victory over South Korea.

Pagliarulo, who was recently selected in the sixth round of the Women’s United Soccer Association draft by the San Diego Spirit, was a three-time National Soccer Collegiate Athletic Association second-team All-American and a four-time All-Colonial Athletic Association goalkeeper for the Patriots from 1995-98. She holds the Mason record for career saves (375) and minutes played (7,005), and ranks second in all-time shutouts (20.75).

Pagliarulo was a member of the U.S. National Team pool from 1993-97. She worked with Mason’s goalkeepers as an assistant coach in 1999 and is currently teaching physical education at a local elementary school.
