Twenty-Five From @ACCWLAX Selected 2014-15 U.S. Team Roster


25 current or former ACC student-athletes make up the U.S. Team

WASHINGTON, D.C.  -  U.S. Lacrosse has announced the 38-player roster for the 2014-15 U.S. Women’s National Team. Among the 38 players are 25 current or former ACC women’s lacrosse student-athletes. 
Players were selected from an 81-player invite-only tryout pool, and were evaluated by the U.S. Women’s National Team coaching staff, led by head coach Ricky Fried, as well as several top-level college coaches. 

The team will train and compete in several exhibition events in the lead-up to the 2017 Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) Women’s World Cup in Surrey, England. Ultimately, 18 players will represent the U.S., as the team goes for a third consecutive and eighth overall world title. The team will next convene for training on August 1-3 at Georgetown University.

Eight players from the squad that won gold at the 2013 FIL World Cup in Oshawa, Ontario, return to the training team, including World Cup returners in former Maryland midfielder Katie Schwarzmann and former North Carolina defender Jenn Russell. An additional six players from the gold-medal winning 2011 U.S. Women’s Under-19 Team earned a spot on the senior national team, including Boston College midfielder Mikaela Rix, Duke defender Taylor Trimble, Maryland midfielder Kelly McPartland, Syracuse attacker Kayla Treanor and Notre Dame attacker Cortney Fortunato.

North Carolina leads all schools with eight current or former players, while Maryland and Syracuse each have seven, including four that played in the ACC in 2014. Virginia and Duke each have two representatives, while Boston College and Notre Dame each have one player on the roster.
