Saint Joseph’s sophomore midfielder Rebecca Lane (Victoria, Australia/ Maribyrnong College) has been announced as one of 18 selections to make the roster for the Australian Lacrosse Women’s National team, it was announced on Thursday morning. Under the direction of head coach Trish Adams, Lane and Team Australia will compete at the 2017 FIL Women’s World Cup, to be held at the University of Surrey in Guilford, Surrey, England from July 12-22. Following the World Cup, the squad will travel to Wroclaw, Poland for the 2017 International World Games, from July 25-29.
“I am so proud of Bec and how hard she has been working to make this team,” said Saint Joseph’s third-year head coach Alex Kahoe. “She accomplished great things as a U-19 Australian World Cup player, and it’s so exciting for her to reach her goal of making the Australian National Team to play in the World Cup. We wish Bec and the Australian National team the best of luck in the World Cup in July.”
Lane has experienced success while playing for her native country thus far in her career. Most recently, she recorded eight points on three goals and five assists to go with four ground balls and pair of draw controls at the Team USA Fall Classic this past October. She was a U-19 World Championship All-World Team selection after posting 24 points (13g, 11a) and 20 draw controls through seven games in Summer 2015 and also earned All-Star honors at the 2014 U-18 National Tournament.
Lane, who took home 2016 Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Year accolades, is a native of Victoria, Australia. She is now the second Hawk to make a National team roster for the 2017 FIL Women’s World Cup, as senior midfielder Maggie Egan was announced to Ireland’s roster on November 30.
