US Lacrosse Release | ACC Release
Former Boston College lacrosse star Kristin Igoe has been named to the United States Women's National Team, according to an announcement made by US Lacrosse today.
The team will compete at the 2013 Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) World Cup from July 11-20 in Oshawa, Ontario. The US will look to defend its 2009 gold medal and earn its seventh overall world title. First-year BC head coach Acacia Walker played for the 2009 world championship team.
Igoe made the 18-player roster after competing with the team's 25-player training roster at the Champion Challenge in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., from Jan. 25-27. The team went 3-0 at the event against Northwestern, Syracuse, and the English women's national team.
The Framingham, Mass., native played with the national team during the 2011-12 cycle along with Walker.
A four-time All-ACC selection, Igoe finished her career at BC third in points (218), first in goals (168), and fourth in assists (50).
Current sophomores Covie Stanwick and Mikaela Rix also have national team experience, helping the US U19 team earn a gold medal at the 2011 FIL Women's Championship.
The Eagles open their 2013 season at Holy Cross on Saturday, Feb. 16 at 3 p.m.
