Ten current Terrapins and two former players competed on eight teams in the WNC, which  took place all week at Spooky Nook Sports in Lancaster, Pa.  The WNC serves as the selection trials for the U.S. Women's National Squad.

Terrapin alum and current national team member Ali McEvoy and Meredith Long, also a former Terp, played as well, while head coach Missy Meharg coached the USA White team.

Current U.S. National Team members Katie O’Donnell and Jill Witmer did not play in the WNC after their recent time at the Rabobank Hockey World Cup. Fellow national team member Natalie Hunter did not play due to an injury.
