U.S. Field Hockey Official Release | Minutewomen In Action At The National Championship

NORFOLK, Va. - UMass field hockey assistant coach Shannon Taylor and former Minutewomen goalkeeper Alesha Widdall will represent the United States as members of the 2013-14 U.S. National Squad, as announced by Team USA head coach Craig Parnham following completion of the Women's National Championship on Wednesday. Taylor and Widdall are veterans of the highest level of competition, with Taylor taking part in the 2012 Olympic Games and Widdall joining the team for the Champions Challenge last year.

The duo earned spots from among 108 competitors comprising six teams, which also included four current Minutewomen in Sam Carlino, Izzie Delario, Hannah Prince and Alexa Sikalis and program alumna Kim Young (2009-12); while UMass head coach Carla Tagliente directed the New England/North High Performance Squad.

Young totaled a pair of goals during the five-game championship slate to lead all scorers on the New England/North team while Delario added one tally. Carlino saw time in net for Tagliente's squad while Widdall secured the cage for the Midwest/California program.

The athletes selected to the U.S. Women's National Squad will report to Rutgers University to begin preparations for the International Hockey Federation's World League Semifinal in London, hosted from June 22-30. The roster will be trimmed to 18 players for the World Cup qualifying event during the beginning of June.
