"It was a privilege to play at the Women's National Championship with the best players in the country and with those who represent USA Field Hockey on an international stage," Bascetta said. "This experience as helped me grow as a player and I look forward to bringing what I've learned back to BC field hockey this fall."

"Getting the opportunity to play with other players and be coached by those in my region was a great experience," Kelleher said. "Playing with teammates I am not used to was a great learning experience, as was playing with and against those who competed in the 2012 London Olympics. Being able to play alongside and learn from the best players in our country was such a great opportunity for me."
