WASHINGTON, D.C. - Marquette University junior defender Elizabeth Goslee was named to the 38-player roster for the 2014-15 U.S. Women's National Team, U.S. Lacrosse announced Sunday at the conclusion of a three-day tryout at Georgetown.

Players were selected from an 81-player invite-only tryout pool, and were evaluated by the Team USA coaching staff, led by head coach Ricky Fried, as well as several top-level college coaches. The team will train and compete in several exhibition events in the lead-up to the 2017 Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) Women's World Cup in Surrey, England. Ultimately, 18 players will represent the U.S. as the team goes for a third consecutive and eighth overall world title.

Goslee was one of 10 defenders selected out of the 25 who took part in tryouts, and one of just four members of the class of 2016 to be chosen.

The Cincinnati native continued to standout on defense for the Golden Eagles as a sophomore, ranking second on the squad in caused turnovers (21) and third in ground balls (24), while earning All-BIG EAST Second Team honors and sharing team most valuable player honors with classmate Hayley Baas.

Goslee helped the MU defense limit opponents to over three-and-a-half fewer goals during the program’s second season in 2014. She was named to the BIG EAST Weekly Honor roll on April 22 after posting a career-high five caused turnovers and four ground balls against Temple on April 17.

The Golden Eagles concluded the 2014 season with an overall record of 5-12, including a 1-6 mark in conference action.
