Friday July 27, 2012Five Lacrosse Gators to Try Out for U.S. Women's Senior National Team

Gainesville, Fla.

Five University of Florida Lacrosse team members – two coaches and three players – will begin tryouts for the 2012-14 U.S. Women’s Senior National Team July 27-29 in Catonsville, Md.


Current Gators Brittany Dashiell (Bel Air, Md.), Sam Farrell (Millersville, Md.), and Mikey Meagher (Liverpool, N.Y.) will tryout alongside assistant coaches Erica LaGrow (North Carolina ’08) and Caitlyn McFadden (Maryland ’10) in the three day, invitation-only tryout. LaGrow and McFadden have been members of the national team since 2007 and were key members of the 2009 FIL World Cup Championship team.  The first round of tryouts was held at the US Lacrosse National Tournament on May 26-27, 2012.


If selected to the team, each athlete will serve a two-year membership on Team USA and the group will serve as the pool from which the roster is selected for the 2013 FIL World Cup held in Oshawa, Canada.  Tryouts will take place on the campus of the University of Maryland-Baltimore County and are open to the public.
