Feb. 2, 2009

BALTIMORE, Md. - Maryland junior Caitlyn McFadden is one of 18 players selected to compete for the United States in the 2009 Federation of International Lacrosse World Cup from June 17-27 in the Czech Republic. The team was selected following the Champion® Challenge event in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., last weekend.

McFadden, who boasted All-American honors as a sophomore, is one of six current collegiate players to be named to the team. McFadden played for the U.S. against Maryland this weekend in exhibition play. The junior from Phoenix, Md., tallied 27 goals and 27 assists a year ago.

In addition to McFadden, former Terp Acacia Walker was also named to the team. Walker played for the Terps from 2002-05 and was a two-time All-American. Walker is currently the associate head coach at UMass. Current Maryland assistant coach and former Terp standout Quinn Carney was named as an alternate. Carney was a four-time national champion and two-time All-American for the Terps. She was a member of the U.S. World Cup champion squad in 2001 and then earned a silver medal in 2005, where she was named to the All-World Team.

McFadden and the rest of the U.S. team will be in action again this weekend for the South of the Border tournament in North Carolina, an event highlighted by games against England and Wales.

Maryland will battle England in an exhibition match at 7 p.m. next Tuesday, Feb. 10 at the Field Hockey & Lacrosse Complex before officially kicking off the season on the road at Richmond Feb. 15.
