University of Florida senior midfielder Brittany Dashiell (Bel Air, Md.) has been named to the 25-player U.S. Women’s National Training Team roster, announced by the US Lacrosse organization. The team was selected from the standing 38-player roster comprising the 2012-14 U.S. Women’s National Team and these 25 players will train with Team USA in preparation for the July 2013 Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) World Cup in Oshawa, Ontario.

Dashiell, a Tewaaraton Award and Honda Sports Award finalist in 2012, is preparing for her senior season with the Gators. Last season the Bel Air, Md. native, was a consensus First-Team All-American and a First-Team IWLCA All-South Region selection and finished in the top four in every statistical category.  She led the Orange and Blue with 69 points and 25 assists, second with 17 caused turnovers, third with 44 goals and 46 draw controls and fourth with 31 ground balls. She was named a 2013 Preseason All-American by Inside Lacrosse magazine. 


These 25 players will represent Team USA at the Sunday, Jan. 27 exhibition against defending NCAA champion Northwestern at Champion® Challenge, a US Lacrosse event. Team USA will square off against the Wildcats at 11 a.m. EST on Jan. 27 at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. Team USA will also take on national champion runner-up Syracuse on Saturday, Jan. 26.

 

The reigning world champion U.S. women’s national team, which defeated Australia to win the 2009 World Cup, will announce a final 18-player roster for the 2013 World Cup in early February.
