WASHINGTON — Eight current or former North Carolina lacrosse players made the cut for the U.S. womens national team, more than any school in the nation.
U.S. Lacrosse released the 38-player roster for its 2014-15 team on Sunday after a three-day tryout at Georgetown University. Attacker Becky Lynch, midfielders Maggie Bill, Emily Garrity and Laura Zimmerman, defenders Jenn Russell, Sloane Serpe and Courtney Waite and goalie Caylee Waters have played for the Tar Heels.
Players were selected from an 81-player invite-only tryout pool. Ultimately, 18 players will represent the United States.
