    WASHINGTON - Following the conclusion of a three-day tryout at Georgetown University, USC women’s lacrosse head coach Lindsey Munday and assistant coach Devon Wills were each named to the 38-player 2014-15 U.S. women’s national team roster on Friday, June 20. The two Trojan coaches were each members of national teams that won world titles in 2009 and 2013; two of four players on the roster that carry the distinguished achievement.

    The 38-player roster was selected from an 81-player invite-only tryout pool. Players were evaluated by the Team USA coaching staff, led by head coach Ricky Fried and 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 to be held in Surrey, England. Ultimately, 18 players will represent the U.S. as the team goes for a third consecutive and eighth overall world title.

    Eight players from the squad that won gold at the 2013 FIL World Cup in Oshawa, Ontario, return to the training team, including All-World performers in attacker Munday and goalkeeper Wills. Among other World Cup returners are attacker Danielle Etrasco, midfielders Sarah Bullard, Caitlyn McFadden, Kelly Rabil and Katie Schwarzmann, and 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.

    A team-high eight players are graduates of or currently play for North Carolina, with Maryland and Syracuse placing seven current and former players on the squad each.

    "We appreciate the tremendous effort put forth by this group of players this weekend," Fried said. "While it's always a difficult task to select from among the most decorated players in the country, we're excited to begin the process of defending the gold medal with this new group."

    The team will next convene for a training weekend Aug. 1-3 at Georgetown. For more information on the U.S. women's national team, visit uslacrosse.org/teamusa.
