by USA Field Hockey

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The No. 15 U.S. Women’s National Team kicks off the third season of the FIH Hockey Pro League when they travel to Germany and The Netherlands on March 22. USWNT Head Coach Anthony Farry and coaching staff have named the 22-athlete traveling roster that will head to Europe for the four matches.


“The upcoming FIH Pro League season is very important for us as we look to provide opportunity to not only those that didn’t play in the Pan American Cup but other identified athletes,” said Anthony Farry, USWNT Head Coach. “Given that we have some new players coming in it’s always exciting and certainly adds a bit of edge to the group.”


“The other obvious benefit to these games is that we can continue to build the on-field combinations and test ourselves against the best in the world."


Leading the squad with the most international caps are Ashley Hoffman (Mohnton, Pa.) (73), Amanda Magadan (Randolph, N.J.) (93) and Lauren Moyer (York, Pa.) (88). These athletes will bring their experience to a squad that features a handful of athletes with less than ten internal games under their belts. Farry identified three athletes and invited them on tour. Those athletes are Sanne Caarls (Nieuw-Vennep, Netherlands); Olivia Bent-Cole (Philadelphia, Pa.), a member of the Rise USWNT; and Meredith Solder (Fleetwood, Pa.). Although 22 athletes are traveling to Europe, only 18 will be selected prior to each game to compete.


Olivia Bent-Cole (Philadelphia, Pa.), Kelsey Bing (Houston, Texas), Kelsey Briddell (Gansevoort, N.Y.), Sanne Caarls (Nieuw-Vennep, Netherlands), Brooke DeBerdine (Millersville, Pa.), Fusine Govaert (Bedford, N.Y.), Danielle Grega (Kingston, Pa.), Ally Hammel (Duxbury, Mass.), Carrie Hanks (Niskayuna, N.Y.), Ashley Hoffman (Mohnton, Pa.), Karlie Kisha (Hamburg, Pa.), Amanda Magadan (Randolph, N.J.), Lauren Moyer (York, Pa.), Haley Randall (Virginia Beach, Va.), Jenny Rizzo (Hershey, Pa.), Kealsie Robles (Seaford, Va.), Megan Rodgers (San Diego, Calif.), Meredith Sholder (Fleetwood, Pa.), Cassie Sumfest (Lewisburg, Pa.), Julianna Tornetta (Plymouth Meeting, Pa.), Paityn Wirth (Thompsontown, Pa.), Jillian Wolgemuth (Mount Joy, Pa.)

The No. 15 USWNT will start their 2021-22 FIH Hockey Pro League campaign when they take on No. 5 Germany in two games at the Sparkassen Park in Mönchengladbach, Germany. The last time that USA and Die Danas played was June 2019, in the FIH Hockey Pro League, a game that Germany narrowly took, 3-2.


They will then head to Holland for a two-game series against No. 1 The Netherlands. Taking place at the Wagener Hockey Stadium in Amstelveen, these teams last met in January 2020, just before the pandemic shutdown, in the only home game hosted in the United States that season. The Netherlands commanding won the match 9-0.
