CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Virginia field hockey rising junior Adele Iacobucci (Malvern, Pa.) has been named to the training squad for two upcoming U22 international competitions as announced today (June 24) by USA Field Hockey.
Following the completion of the Young Women’s National Championship (YWNC), 35 athletes, including Iacobucci, have been identified as the women’s Junior Pan American Championship (JPAC) Training Squad. This U-22 group will start training immediately as JPAC, an International Hockey Federation (FIH) Junior World Cup qualifier, will take place August 16 to 29 in Santiago, Chile.
From this training squad, a 24-athlete group, including Iacobucci, has been selected to compete against Chile from June 30 through July 4 at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Va. The USWNT staff will select the competing roster each day of the games.
Iacobucci, an All-Atlantic Region First Team honoree, ranked second on the team in goals (8) and points (17) for the Cavaliers last season, ranking in the top-10 in the conference in both categories. The midfielder was named to the ACC All-Tournament team and was also the ACC Offensive Player of the Week after scoring twice in UVA’s 5-2 victory against James Madison. She also earned a spot on the All-ACC Academic Team and the NFHCA National Academic Squad.
Iacobucci was also named to the US Women’s Senior National Team earlier this week.
