The USA Field Hockey Women’s National Team — now ranked #5 in the world — will take on Ireland in a series of games held on the outdoor turf at the Home of Hockey at Spooky Nook Sports in Lancaster, PA on May 18 – 21. Tickets are now on sale.
The test series, comprised of 3 games, is another huge step in prepping the team for qualifying tournaments (beginning this summer) for the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio.
Seven Phila-area players are on the 30-woman roster including including Marie Elena Bolles (Phoenixville/Villa Maria Academy/forward), Lauren Crandall (Doylestown/Central Bucks East HS/defense), Kaitlyn Falgowski (Landenberg/St. Mark’s HS/midfield), Ali McEvoy (Gilbertsville/Boyertown Area Senior HS/defense), Katie O’Donnell (Blue Bell/Wissahickon HS/striker), Julia Reinprecht (Perkasie/Mount Saint Joseph Academy/defense) and Katie Reinprecht (Perkasie/Mount Saint Joseph Academy/midfield). Another nine players hail from Pennsylvania making more than half of the USA Women’s National Team from the Keystone State.
The USWNT’s Argentina series, held in February, sold out in record time and demand for tickets is anticipated to be high with match tickets being limited. Tickets are $18 for adults and $9 for discounts (under 18, senior citizens and military). There will also be the option to purchase the full series tickets for $48 for adults and $24 for discounts.
