Elizabeth Goslee Named To US Lacrosse Women's National Team Tryout Pool

If you needed proof that the rising junior is rapidly becoming one of the best defenders around, well, now you've got it.

On Wednesday, US Lacrosse announced the player pool for the tryouts to assemble a national team to train for the 2017 Women's World Cup.  Marquette defender Elizabeth Goslee was included in the pool.

So that's the good news.  The flip side of it is that it's an 88 player pool that will come together on June 13-15 in order to whittle things down to a 36-40 player squad to train together building up to the World Cup three years from now.  Biz is one of 25 defenders attending the tryouts, and two of them, Amber Falcone and Jen Russell, were both on the 2013 US national team that won the World Cup.  All told there are 11 players from the 18 player squad that triumphed in Canada last year included in the tryout pool, so it's a long road for a lot of players that will gather at Georgetown in Washington D.C.

One thing working in Goslee's favor for her inclusion in the training pool is that she's one of four defenders that just finished their sophomore years, with a fifth having wrapped up their freshman campaign.  With an eye on having the best players in 2017, US Lacrosse might give an advantage to the younger players, as they'll have more regular training schedules between now and the World Cup.

Goslee is one of nine players from the Big East in 2013 that made the 88 player pool, and one of just three defenders, along with Chelsea Intrabartola from Rutgers and Georgetown's Jordan Trautman.  Goslee finished the 2013 season second on MU in caused turnovers and third in ground balls.  She was also named to the All-Big East Second Team.
