Women's Lacrosse World Cup Begins Thursday
July 11, 2013
OSHAWA - Three current members of the Loyola University Maryland women's lacrosse program, in addition to three alumnae and a former assistant coach, are in Oshawa, Canada to represent their respective countries on the 2013 Federation of International Lacrosse Women's World Cup.
Loyola head coach Jen Adams, rising-senior All-American Marlee Paton, and graduates Cassandra Cursaro '13, Stacey Morlang `03 and Kristen Stone `08 will represent Team Australia, while assistant coach Dana Dobbie and former assistant coach Kylie White will be with the Canadian National Team.
Opening Ceremonies were tonight (Wednesday), with pool play beginning on Thursday, July 11. The Championship portion of the schedule will start on Wednesday, July 17, with the gold medal game being played on Saturday, July 20. A full schedule of Canada and Australia's games can be found below or by visiting the World Cup website.
Adams, a member of the Australian National Team since winning the U-19 World Championships in 1995, will miss this year's World Cup due to a torn ACL. The two-time All-World player and team captain led the Aussie's to the gold medal at the 2005 World Cup and a silver medal in 2001 and 2009.
Morlang, playing in her third World Cup, will also serve as an Australian team captain, while Cursaro and Paton are both making their second appearances on the national team. The duo helped Loyola to back-to-back BIG EAST Championships in 2011 and 2012, and three-straight NCAA Tournament appearances (2011-13), while Morlang was a three-time IWLCA All-American for the Greyhounds, helping them to four-straight NCAA Tournaments and two semifinal appearances.
Stone, a native of Buffalo, N.Y., will be playing in her first World Cup as a non-national after spending the past two years as Australia's U21 Victorian Coach and manager of the U19 Australian Men's Team.
Dobbie, Canada's most decorated women's lacrosse player, and White will look to lead the host country to its first gold medal in the history of the World Cup. An All-World player, Dobbie helped the Canadians to a bronze medal in 2009.
