Ten current Wahoos will continue play this weekend in the United States Field Hockey Association's Summer League as the regular season draws to a close. The Tidewater Tempest features six Cavaliers while the Philadelphia Fury boasts four Hoos. These two teams, along with the other six teams in the league, will compete for semifinal spots in the championships,which will take place July 4-6 at the US National Training Center in Virginia Beach.
Upperclassmen Emily White, Katie Jo Gerfen, and Juli Bojanic are all on teams, as are goalkeepers Katherine Blair and Logan Carr. Five rising second years are also on teams, including Lindsey Selfridge, Biffy Cornelison, Alison Flynn, Sarah Miller, and Dana Anderson. White, Gerfen, Blair, Carr, Selfridge and Cornelison play for the Tempest while Flynn, Bojanic, Miller and Anderson are all members of the Fury.
Michelle (Vizzuso) Crawford is also playing in the league and is a member of the league-leading Southern Charm.
The Fury open play against the Charm at 8:00 am on Saturday, June 21. Tempest start play at 9:05 am later that day.
Designed to allow a large number of elite level athletes the opportunity to play against high-calibre competition, the Summer League provides athletes with highly competitive playing opportunities in order to create a consistent, high level of performance for US teams at the Olympic and Pan American Games.
Far from just a lazy summer day in the park, the summer league is a fervent festival of intense competition as players look to continue their progression in the U.S. Field Hockey Association's Elite Team Development program.
The summer league features seven franchise teams from regions in the East and Midwest. League teams play a double round-robin schedule culminating in the semifinals and championship game.
The league features the Metro Rush, Midwest Cyclones, New England Eclipse, Pensylvania Pride, Philadelphia Fury, Southern Charm, Tidewater Tempest and the USA Under-20 team.
In the summer league, elite players of all ages compete together and are not divided by age group. As a result, the organization of the league allows for high school standouts as young as 16 to compete on the same turf as veteran U.S. Olympians and collegiate all-Americas.
