BALTIMORE, MD -- After three days of tryouts at the University of Maryland Baltimore County, U.S. Lacrosse recently named 49 players that will represent the U.S. women's national teams in 2008-09. The player pool will be divided into Elite and Developmental teams following U.S. Lacrosse's Stars and Stripes weekend in October (10-13).

Among the 49 players selected are three with ties to Johns Hopkins. Rising junior Angela Hughes (D), incoming freshman Colleen McCaffrey (D) and recently graduated midfielder Lauren Schwarzmann all played their way into the final 49.

"We are very excited to have three players from Johns Hopkins selected," Blue Jay head coach Janine Tucker said. "The tryout is very demanding and each of these young ladies demonstrated their individual talents, but also the ability to play within a team system. We are also especially excited that two of the three will bring this experience back to Johns Hopkins for the upcoming season."

Hughes played in all 17 games and earned 16 starts on defense for the Blue Jays during the 2008 season. She earned Second Team All-ALC honors and scored three goals, added 20 ground balls and forced 16 turnovers. She was the only sophomore among JHU's five All-ALC honorees and established herself as one of the premier young defenders in the nation with her tenacity and athleticism. She has started 29 games in two seasons at Johns Hopkins and will anchor the Blue Jay defense next season. This will be the first time she represents the United States in international competition.

McCaffrey was the only player among the 49 selected who has yet to play in college as she will arrive at Johns Hopkins this fall after a standout career at Mt. Sinai High School (NY). She played midfield in high school but was selected as a defender. This is the second time she has been selected to represent the United States in international competition as she was a member of the world champion U.S. Under-19 team in 2007. She totaled more than 300 goals and 175 assists in high school.

 

 

Schwarzmann is also making her second appearance with the U.S. national team as she was a member of the developmental team last year. She was a three-time All-ALC selection during her career at Johns Hopkins and totaled 79 goals and 39 assists during her four years with the Blue Jays. She ranks among the top 10 in school Division I history in goals, assists and points and is JHU's all-time Division I scoring leader among midfielders.
