Etrasco Named to 2017 World Cup Training Team

Oct. 13, 2016

WASHINGTON - Georgetown University Women’s Lacrosse Assistant Coach Danielle Etrasco was named to the 2017 U.S. Women’s World Cup Training Team on Thursday. She was one of 25 players to move on for the chance to compete at the 2017 Federation of International Lacrosse Women’s World Cup, which will be held July 13-22 in Guildford, England.

Team USA was selected from a 36-player pool following the inaugural Team USA Fall Classic, which welcomed Australia, Canada, England and the 2016 NCAA Division I champion North Carolina to the US Lacrosse headquarters on October 8-9. Team USA went undefeated, winning by a combined 79-29 score.

The 2017 World Cup Training Team will compete in Florida next January at the Team USA Spring Premiere. Following the event, the final 18 players plus two alternates will be selected to represent the U.S. as the team goes for a third consecutive and eighth overall world title.

Etrasco is beginning her first season on the Hilltop. She came to Georgetown from Army West Point where she was an assistant coach for two seasons.

During the summer of 2011, Etrasco was invited to join the United States National Team, eventually earning a spot on the 2013 World Cup squad. Etrasco won a gold medal with Team USA at the 2013 Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) World Cup in Oshawa, Ontario, totaling 17 goals and three assists in seven games during the tournament.

In 2016, she was selected as the 28th overall pick in the inaugural United Women's Lacrosse League draft by the Boston Storm.

The Hoyas will open fall tournament play on Sunday in Philadelphia, Pa.
