COLUMBUS, Ohio – Tiffany Cameron, a senior on the 2012 Ohio State women’s soccer team, appeared in her first games for the Canadian Women’s National Team this week at the Yongchuan Cup - Four-Nation Women’s Tournament in China.
Cameron appeared in three matches off the bench, playing 30 minutes in Canada’s 1-0 tournament-opening victory over host China Saturday. The Mississauga, Ontario, native then played 28 minutes each in a 3-1 defeat against Korea Republic Monday and a scoreless draw against Norway Wednesday.
“I am honored to have been given the opportunity to represent my country in the Four Nations Tournament,” Cameron said. “It was an experience that I will treasure and not forget and I plan on continuing to work on my development as a player so that I will be able to experience many more caps with the women's team. After last year's memorable season with the Buckeyes, I have realized if I set a goal and work hard to be the best I can be every day on and off the field, I will achieve it.”
Cameron, a 2012 NSCAA second team All-American and two-time first team All-Big Ten selection, leaves Ohio State as the Buckeyes' all-time leading goal scorer with 40 and tallied 96 career points, also the most in school history. She led the Buckeyes with 21 goals in 2012, shattering the previous school record of 13. Cameron’s nine game-winning goals were the most in the country and her 19 career game-winners tied for fourth-most in Big Ten history. The senior added five assists on the season to tally 47 points, also an Ohio State record.
