BALTIMORE, Md. - Three Maryland Terrapins were named to the U.S. Women's Lacrosse Developmental team, as announced by committee chair Barb Jordan. Katie Doolittle, Kelly Kasper and Krista Pellizzi were among the 28 players selected to represent the 2005-06 team.
Doolittle had a breakout year for the Terps, starting in every game and scoring 33 goals and nine assists for 42 points. Kasper emerged as one of Maryland's top threats down the stretch, capping her strong first season in College Park with All-ACC Tournament honors. Pellizzi was also a valuable offensive spark for Maryland in the second half of the season as she finished the year with 12 goals and eight assists for 20 points.
Doolittle and Pellizzi previously represented the U.S. on the U-19 national team, which captured the IFWLA world championship two years ago.
The Developmental Team will participate in a clinic at the 2005 IFWLA World Cup on June 25, prior to the United States' game against Canada. The team will compete in exhibition games throughout the 2005-06 year.
