SANTIAGO, Chile – After evaluation at the recent Canada series and throughout fall trainings, U.S. Women’s National Team Head Coach Anthony Farry has confirmed the 20-athlete traveling roster to head to Santiago, Chile for the 2022 Pan American Cup (PAC) from January 19 to 30.


“The selection for this important tournament has been very hard,” commented Farry. “We have had a good look at the group, both against Canada, in tournament mode with their college teams and also using the Junior World Cup qualifier in Chile earlier this year, and through this, we believe we have selected a group that can bring us the success we are after at the PAC. We are fully aware there will be some great competition and tough matches and we’re relishing the opportunity to get back into tournament mode.”


With the new squad being named in June, plenty of new talent will make their first international appearances at the PAC. Of the selected, only three athletes competed in the 2017 edition. This trio of Amanda Magadan (Randolph, N.J.), 88 caps, Erin Matson (Chadds Ford, Pa.), 62 caps, and Lauren Moyer (York, Pa.), 83 caps, will lead the squad with the most international experience.


This is paired with some young emerging talent, that was on the junior women’s roster that captured third at the 2021 Junior Pan American Championship. Charlotte De Vries (Malvern, Pa.), who earned top scorer, and Hope Rose (Dauphin, Pa.), who was named Most Valuable Player, are joined by Alia Marshall (Rehoboth Beach, Del.), Ashley Sessa (Schwenksville, Pa.), Sofia Southam (Ann Arbor, Mich.) and Maddie Zimmer (Hershey, Pa.).


The two selected goalkeepers are Kelsey Bing (Houston, Texas) and Kealsie Robles (Seaford, Va.), having been on the team the past two years.


Kelsey Bing (Houston, Texas), Charlotte De Vries (Malvern, Pa.), Brooke DeBerdine (Millersville, Pa.), Danielle Grega (Kingston, Pa.), Alexandra Hammel (Duxbury, Mass.), Karlie Kisha (Hamburg, Pa.), Kelee Lepage (Honey Brook, Pa.), Amanda Magadan (Randolph, N.J.), Alia Marshall (Rehoboth Beach, Del.), Erin Matson (Chadds Ford, Pa.), Lauren Moyer (York, Pa.), Kealsie Robles (Seaford, Va.), Hope Rose (Dauphin, Pa.), Ashley Sessa (Schwenksville, Pa.), Sofia Southam (Ann Arbor, Mich.), Cassie Sumfest (Lewisburg, Pa.), Julianna Tornetta (Plymouth Meeting, Pa.), Jillian Wolgemuth (Mount Joy, Pa.), Beth Yeager (Greenwich, Conn.), Maddie Zimmer (Hershey, Pa.)


In the seven-team event, No. 15 USA sits in Pool B with No. 13 Canada, No. 32 Peru and No. 46 Trinidad. Pool A includes reigning PAC champions No. 3 Argentina, runner-up No. 18 Chile and No. 26 Uruguay.


Team USA opens competition on Wednesday, January 19 against No. 46 Trinidad and Tobago at 2:15 p.m. ET, followed by No. 13 Canada on Friday, January 21 at 2:15 p.m. ET and No. 32 Peru on Sunday, January 23 at 2:15 p.m. ET. Crossovers will take place on Tuesday, January 25 and the semifinals round will begin on Thursday, January 27. All matches will be live streamed, more information to follow.


The top three women's team will earn a spot at the 2022 FIH Hockey Women’s World Cup taking place July 1 to 17, 2022 in both Amsterdam, Netherlands and Terrasa, Spain.


“Next steps for the PAC group will be meeting up in Moorpark on the January 5 to go through an intense pre-PAC preparation camp,” added Farry. “Given that the group hasn’t played a game together yet, we will have plenty to work on. We will then head to Chile on the January 12 where we will have two warm-up games Chile and Uruguay, respectively.”
