Oct. 2, 2013
BALTIMORE -- Fresno State head coach Jessica Pausewang was named among the US Lacrosse assistant coaches and support staff for the 2017 U.S. Women's National Team that was announced on Monday, Oct. 1.
"I'm excited to have this opportunity to represent my country while lacrosse continues to grow internationally," said Pausewang. "Being able to work with this amazing staff and set of players will allow me to bring concepts and ideas to Fresno State which will ultimately strengthen our program."
Pausewang will serve as assistant manager for the 2017 U.S. Women's National Team. Joining her on the staff is Amy Bokker (Stanford University), Liz Robertshaw (Boston University) and Jess Wilk Strosberg (University of Virginia) who were named assistant coaches for a second time. Wendy Stone (Niagara University) will return for a third stint as team manager.
These assistant coaches and staff members will support head coach Ricky Fried (Georgetown University) as Team USA competes for an eighth gold medal at the 2017 Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) World Cup in Surrey, England.
"I have always wanted to be involved with lacrosse at the highest level possible," added Pausewang. "Being a part of this staff, led by Ricky Fried, will no doubt allow me to experience that goal. I am eager to be given a chance to compete for Team USA's eighth gold medal during the 2017 Federation of International Lacrosse World Cup."
The U.S. Women's National Team takes the field for the first time since winning the World Cup on Oct. 12-13 in Annapolis and Towson, Md., where it will face Georgetown, Navy, Stanford and Towson over two days at the US Lacrosse Stars and Stripes Weekend.
