Lady Monarchs' Wosczyna Named To U.S. Women's Lacrosse Developmental Team
June 3, 2003
BALTIMORE, MD - Old Dominion junior midfielder Suzanne Wosczyna was one of forty-eight of the nation's top female lacrosse players named to the United States Women's Elite and Developmental lacrosse teams for 2003-04, as announced today by US Lacrosse.
Elite team head coach Sue Stahl, who also is the head coach at Old Dominion, and Developmental team head coach Sue Murphy, head coach at Richmond, headed up a selection committee that named the teams from a pool of applicants that competed in recent tryouts.
The teams will practice together, play exhibition scrimmages against college teams and serve as clinicians for the US Lacrosse Women's Division National Clinic Month activities scheduled for February 2004. US Lacrosse conducts clinics for youth players at locations throughout the country to help aid in the growth of the sport. Wosczyna, who is one of 24 athletes on the Developmental squad, is a two-time All-American and three-time All-CAA selection. She has led the Lady Monarchs in scoring each of her past three seasons, including a nation leading 6.42 points per game and 2.67 assists per game this past season.
In 2003, Wosczyna, became ODU's all-time leading scorer in just her third season on the squad, helping lead the Lady Monarch women's lacrosse team to a 12-4 overall mark and the finals of the CAA Tournament for the second straight season. Additionally, she was a Tewaaraton Trophy nominee for the nation's top women's lacrosse player. The junior midfielder accumulated 77 points in 2003 with 45 goals and 32 assists and holds a career mark of 149 points, 91 goals, and 240 assists.
Wosczyna is the second Lady Monarch to be named to the Developmental squad. Former ODU standout Takiyah Gettys (1995-98) was also a member of the U.S. Developmental squad in 1998. In past years, two Lady Monarchs have served on the national team, Barb DiArcangelo (1992-93) and recent ODU Hall of Fame inductee, Ericka Davidheiser (1992-95).
