COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Eight current and former members of the Maryland field hockey program are set to play in USA Field Hockey's Young Women's National Championship this week at the Spooky Nook Sports Complex in Lancaster, Pa.

Current Terrapins Brooke DeBerdine, Carrie Hanks, Linnea Gonzales and Kelee Lepage are playing with the U.S. Under-21 squad. Former Terp Kasey Tapman is with the Devo team and Alyssa Parker and Brooke Adler are with the USA Eagles team. Noelle Frost is with the USA White team.

Associate head coach and technical director Joppe de Vries is coaching the USA Gold squad and director of operations Stefanie Fee is coaching the USA Freedom team.

"I'm really looking forward to the upcoming Young Women's National Championship this week," Hanks said. "The tournament provides another opportunity to progress as the Under-21 squad in terms of team cohesion, and development of skills and tactics. With three other Terps on the team with me, it's great to play competitively during the summer against together high-level competition. Having gotten to be a part of the leadership group during the team's recent tour to England, I'm eager for the team to keep developing both veteran and new U-21 players."

The games will open Monday and will conclude Friday afternoon. For the full schedule and more information, click here.
