Four Leopards named to Pennsylvania High Performance Team training squads
The Lafayette College Leopards will get a chance to demonstrate their skills, internationally and nationally by way of their selection to USA Field Hockey national squads. First, co-captain Theresa Delahanty was one of three nationally, to be selected to the senior squad after a tryout with Jun Cantwell, the national indoor coach. The National team will continue practices during the summer in anticipation of traveling during the new year for an international tournament against top European teams.
But Theresa was the not the only Leopard who will be playing on a national stage. Four Leopards including Delahanty have been selected to the High Performance Pennsylvania training squad.
They will vie to play in the Young Women’s National Championships at Spook Nook, the national training center for US Field Hockey. There will be selections to the Under 21 Squad, National Developmental Squad and the US Women’s National Team. That championship will be June 25-29. Asst Coach Sarah Dalrymple will be coaching the goal keepers for the Keystone State squad.
Aside from Delahanty the other selectees from Lafayette are Liza Welch, Sarah Park and Grace Angelella. All four of course will be traveling to South Africa in early June as the entire Lafayette squad will be on a playing tour in Africa leaving in late May.
The four figure to be key elements in Coach Stone’s plans this fall as they challenge for the Patriot League Championship and a slot in the NCAA national division one tournament.
