Florida midfielder Brittany Dashiell was named to the 25-player U.S. Women’s National Training Team roster, announced by the U.S. Lacrosse organization.

The team was selected from the standing 38-player roster comprising the 2012-14 U.S. Women’s National Team, and these 25 players will train with Team USA in preparation for the July 2013 Federation of International Lacrosse World Cup in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada.

Dashiell, a Tewaaraton Award and Honda Sports Award finalist in 2012, is preparing for her senior season with the Gators. Last season, she was a consensus First-Team All-American and a First-Team IWLCA All-South Region selection and finished in the top four in every statistical category. She led the Gators with 69 points and 25 assists.

Beisel was Co-SEC Female Swimmer of the Week, along with Georgia’s Melanie Margalis and Rousseau was Co-SEC Male Swimmer of the Week with Marcelo Chierighini of Auburn.
