Chase the Cup with U.S. - Meet Team USA

With the 2014 Rabobank Hockey World Cup right around the corner, we invite you to get to know the faces of the U.S. Women’s National Squad. A few of the team members below share why you should Chase the Cup with U.S. and follow the squad on their quest for greatness in The Hague.

Jamie Montgomery #32 (Maidens, Va.) – Defender. Playing competitive field hockey has always been a mainstay in Montgomery’s life, but she has also built up quite the resume out of her turf shoes. Montgomery received a Master’s of Education from Temple University in 2009 and coached for Bucknell University from 2009 to 2013. She was a standout for the Demon Deacons and is now reunited on the pitch with teammates Lauren Crandall and Michelle Kasold.

Emily Wold #23 (Freehold, N.J.) – Midfielder. Wold was the youngest athlete at the 2012 Women's National Championship, where she impressed national coaches with her stick skills and speed through the midfield. She proved capable of competing with the top athletes in the U.S. and was named to the U.S. Women's National Team at the age of 17. Most recently, Wold was named Junior Player of the Tournament at the 2014 Champions Challenge.

Julia Reinprecht #12 (Perkasie, Pa.) – Defender. Although Reinprecht's life-long vision of becoming part of the U.S. Olympic Roster has come to fruition, her sight has not always been the clearest. As a one year old, the Perkasie, Pa. native had a cataract removed from her left eye, resulting in her vision coming predominately from her right eye. Reinprecht competed alongside her sister Katie Reinprecht at Princeton University as well as the national team.

Natalie Hunter #25 (Marmora, N.J.) – Goal keeper. Instead of becoming a field player, Hunter followed in her eldest sister's kickers and pads becoming a goalie. All three of Hunter's sisters played field hockey growing up and went onto play at Division I colleges. The lessons she learned from her family about hard work and love of the game have carried her through her career at the University of Maryland and competitions as a member of the U21 National team and the Women's National Team.
