MADISON, Wis. -- After a season in which she earned Big Ten Freshman of the Year and was a first-team All-Big Ten selection, Rose Lavelle continues her rookie campaign on the national and international scene as the Cincinnati, Ohio, native was recalled to the U.S. U-20 women’s national team this week.
Lavelle will join 16 players at Team USA’s camp, which began on Sunday, Nov. 17 and runs through Dec. 1 in Carson, Calif.
The camp will be followed by another in mid-December in Florida as the team prepares for the CONCACAF Women's Under-20 Championships, which are Jan. 9 to 19 in the Cayman Islands.
Lavelle has already earned five caps as a member of the U.S. U-20 women’s national team, joining the team for the Twelve Nations Tournament in La Manga, Spain, this past summer.
A native of Cincinnati, Ohio, Lavelle is the first player in UW history to be tabbed conference freshman of the year. During the regular season, Lavelle tied for eighth in the conference in assists (7), leading all Big Ten freshman in that category. She was named the Big Ten Freshman of the Week on Sept. 16 following a seven-point performance which included a pair of goals and three assists over a two-game span.
Lavelle is also the first UW player to earn first-team All-Big Ten accolades since Michele Dalton earned the honor in 2011.
