Plymouth Meeting’s Juliana Tornetta named to 2021-2022 U.S. Women’s National Field Hockey Team

Following evaluation at the Young Women’s National Championship, held at the Virginia Beach Regional Training Center in Virginia Beach, U.S. Women’s National Team Head Coach Anthony Farry and his staff have named the 2021-22 U.S. Women’s National Team roster.

Among those named to the team was Plymouth Meeting’s Julianna Tornetta who played for Agnes Irwin in high school and collegitately for Princeton University.

While at Princeton, Tornetta was a two-time All-American, plus earned three All-Region and First-Team All-Ivy credits. She received consecutive NCAA Final Four All-Tournament Team honors and was named the 2017 Ivy Rookie of the Year. She was also a two-time Ivy Champion and went to two Final Fours. She graduated with 18 goals, 33 assists, and 69 career points.

“This is the beginning of an exciting new era for the USWNT,” said Farry. “With the support of the field hockey community, we are looking forward to a period of growth that will lead to sustained success on the international stage.”

“We have had a very strong selection process over a three-month period, culminating in assessing about 150 of the best players in the country right now at the Young Women’s National Championship. Whilst we acknowledge the contribution of those that have missed selection, we firmly believe that we are on the right path to prepare us for Paris 2024 and Los Angeles 2028.”
