  • Catonsville, Md. (June 1, 2012) – Rutgers women’s lacrosse junior midfielder Stephanie Anderson (Wading River, N.Y.) has been selected by US Lacrosse as one of 38 players to compete for a place on the 2012-13 U.S. women’s national team.

    Anderson was selected from a pool of 143 players representing 34 institutions that participated in open tryouts at US Lacrosse National Tournament, held May 25-27 in Stony Brook, N.Y. The 38 players that advanced to the second round will be joined by returning members of the 2011-12 U.S. women’s national team, as well as those waived through the first round of tryouts. The second and final round of tryouts will be held July 27-29 on the campus of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. 

    Following the second round of tryouts, 36-40 players will be selected. This group will also serve as the training team pool for the U.S. women’s national team which will defend its 2009 gold medal at the 2013 Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) World Cup in Oshawa, Canada. The final 18-player World Cup roster is expected to be announced in February 2013.

    Anderson scored 41 goals to lead the Scarlet Knights this season, adding five assists for 46 points en route to All-BIG EAST and All-Mid-Atlantic Second Team selections. The junior added 19 ground balls in 16 starts. Anderson ranked sixth in the league in goals per game (2.56) and 10th overall in points per game (2.88). She upped her play during conference action, finishing third with 3.12 goals per game.
