NOTRE DAME, Ind. — The Canadian Lacrosse Association announced on Thursday that Irish graduate Crysti Foote (’06) has been selected to its 18-player senior women’s national team that will compete at the 2017 FIL Women’s Lacrosse World Cup.
Following a training camp in Syracuse, New York, this past weekend, the coaching staff narrowed the roster down from 25 to 18 players. All 18 athletes will compete in the World Cup from July 12-22 in Guildford, England.

Foote, a native of Mimico, Ontario, is a two-time First Team All-Big East selection as well as a two-time All-American. She was named a finalist for the Tewaaraton Trophy and was chosen as the IWLCA Attack Player of the Year her senior year.
