    EVANSTON, Ill. - A trio of Northwestern student-athletes have been selected to compete at the United States Women's National Championship later this month in Lancaster, Pa.

    Rising juniors Lisa McCarthy and Caroline Troncelliti as well as graduating senior Nikki Parsley are set to represent NU at the event June 16-21.

    The Women's National Championship is held annually and features the most elite athletes in the country, including top collegiate players, current National Team members and members of the 2012 U.S. Olympic Women's Field Hockey Team. Athletes train at sites throughout the country in the hopes of being named to the Women's National Championship squad for their region. The six regional squads face off for the prestigious title of national champion.

    The U.S. Women's National Championship serves as the selection trials for the U.S. Women's National Squad.

    Additionally, three other Wildcats are among the 72 individuals invited to the second-annual Under-21 Championship June 22-25 also in Lancaster, Pa.

    Rising juniors Lauren Bernardi and Charlotte Martin as well as sophomore-to-be Lindsay von der Luft will represent Northwestern at the event which is held to determine spots at this year's Junior National Camp in the hopes to be selected to one of the 2014-15 Junior National Teams.
