The University of Massachusetts field hockey program had a pair of current Minutewomen compete at the 2014 U.S. Junior National Camp this week as Izzie Delario and Brooke Sabia participated in organized activities from July 6-9.
The duo continued a trend of current and former UMass field hockey players and coaches training or working with the U.S. National Program this summer. Eight Minutewomen competed at the 2014 Women's National Championship (June 16-21) before two more participated in the U21 Championship (June 22-25). In addition, head coach Carla Tagliente coached at the Women's National Championship while former all-American goalkeeper Alesha Widdall was with Team USA for the 2014 World Cup (May 31-June 15).
