Seeking out a new sport in high school to challenge her agility, Froede was given a field hockey stick to play around with during the summer by a coach. In those three months, Froede couldn't let go of the game. She was attracted to the sport for its all encompassing aspects of athleticism: speed, strength, endurance and technical ability. A new name to the 2015-16 U.S. Women's National Team roster, the defender comes with a bundle of top-tier college experience on the pitch. At Miami University, Froede was awarded with the honor of First-Team All MAC twice and was selected for NFHCA All-West Region Second Team in 2014. Through relentless training and full investment of energy into hockey, Froede turned a dream into a reality by representing the red, white and blue.
"When I received the news that I was invited to join the team, I made no hesitation to accept the offer," said Froede. "Playing amongst and against the most elite players in the world is a dream come true and having the opportunity to represent the USA is a true honor."
