Four Cavaliers Named to United States Lacrosse Team
Three Current Coaches Part of the Squad as Well
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- The University of Virginia claims six Cavaliers on the United States lacrosse squad, announced yesterday by U.S. head coach Sue Stahl. The squad will defend its World Cup title in April.
The assistant coach of the team is Heather Dow, currently an assistant coach for the second-ranked Virginia lacrosse team. This is her eleventh year as a part of the team; she won a gold medal as the goalie in 1986 and has won a gold medal as an assistant coach (1993). Joining Dow on the squad are three former UVa All-Americans, including players-of-the-year Robin Nye (Virginia 1991) and Cherie Greer (Virginia 1994).
Nye, a native of Bala Cynwyd, Pa., was a member of Virginia's first NCAA Championship squad. She was a captain of that 1991 team and was named the NCAA Defensive Player of the Year.
Bonnie Rosen (Virginia 1992) was recently named the University of Connecticut's first head women's lacrosse coach. Connecticut opens varsity play in 1998.
Greer, who won two NCAA Championships in 1991 and 1993, was the Defensive Player of the Year in 1994. Greer is the only Cavalier women's lacrosse player to have her number retired. As a defense wing, she led the nation in scoring in 1994. Greer was a member of the 1993 Gold medal team women's lacrosse team.
Current UVa field hockey coach Jessica Wilk, an assistant lacrosse coach last year, was named to the team as a goalie. Wilk, who played at Maryland, was the starting 'keeper in the gold medal game in 1993.
Current Virginia assistant coach Kristen Aceto (Virginia 1990) was named as an alternate to the team. The full roster is listed below.
