Tar Heel women's lacrosse players Rachel Szakmary and Brooke Young have been invited to participate in trials for the U.S. women's lacrosse national team.
Trials will be held in August at Cabrini College in Radnor, Pa.
Szakmary and Young, rising juniors at UNC, both took part in the Women's Division National Tournament in May and were selected for the U.S. team trials based on their performances there.
Young, an attacker, started every game and finished fifth on the Tar Heel team in scoring in 2002 with 37 points on 20 goals and 17 assists. She will be UNC's top returning scorer in 2003.
Szakmary, also an attacker, saw action in 15 UNC games in 2002, finishing the season with one goal and two assists.
The 2002 Tar Heels set a school record with 17 wins, won the ACC tournament and reached the NCAA Final Four.
