Gator alumna Shayna Pirreca was one of 27 players who earned a spot on the team.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Former Gator lacrosse player Shayna Pirreca was named to the U.S. Women’s National Team for the Team USA Fall Classic, taking place on Oct. 6 at the US Lacrosse Headquarters.

The 27-player roster was announced by U.S. Team Head Coach Jenny Levy on Tuesday and includes 12 of the 18 players that won gold with the 2017 U.S. World Cup team.

The U.S. Team will face defending national champions James Madison in an exhibition game on Oct. 6 in Levy’s first time coaching Team USA.

“Our coaching staff is excited for our first training camp and to coach this talented group of athletes,” Levy said. “By 2021, our goal is to work with at least 80 players to build a hardworking, exciting and cohesive team to represent the USWNT in the next World Cup.

“We are using a new process to identify our team and although change can create uncertainty, I am confident that the process will excite and energize elite players who want the opportunity to demonstrate excellence, skill, creativity and team play at the highest level.”

Pirreca, a 2018 graduate of the University at Florida, recorded numerous accolades during her time as a Gator. During her senior season alone, she was a IWLCA All-South Second Team selection and an All-BIG EAST First Team honoree.

The Mount Sinai, N.Y. native also became just the sixth Gator to break 200 career points and ninth player in program history to score at least 100 goals. She also holds the program record for longest goal scoring streak at 40 games.
