COLLEGE PARK, Md. – Four members of the Maryland field hockey team were selected to the USA Field Hockey Under-21 and Developmental Squads last week.

Junior Linnea Gonzales and incoming freshman Brooke DeBerdine were both named to the Under-21 Team. Senior Carrie Hanks and former Terrapin Kasey Tapman were selected to the Developmental Squad.

Gonzales, DeBerdine and Hanks all competed with the Under-21 Team in the Junior World Cup last November.

Carrie aged out of the Under-21 Team, but she helped lead her team at the Young Women's National Championship to a first place finish,” head coach Missy Meharg said. “They went into shootouts, in which Carrie helped led them them to a win. She was captain of the team and now making transition into the US Development squad.”

“I'm very excited to have been named to the Women's Development Squad following the Young Women's National Championship and subsequent selection training camp,” Hanks said. The squad is comprised of strong players eager to work hard in hopes of reaching a level worthy of the Women's National Team training squad. I am thrilled for the opportunity continue training in the USA development system approaching my senior season as a Terp!”

Former Terrapins Jill Witmer, Anna Dessoye, Alyssa Parker and Maryland director of operations Stefanie Fee are currently on the U.S. Senior National Team roster. Former Terp All-American Ali Campbell announced her retirement from the U.S. National Team last week as well.
