Freshman Meghan McCullough Named To USA Junior Women's Indoor Field Hockey Team

Quinnipiac freshman Meghan McCullough (Plymouth Meeting, Pa.) was named to the Team USA Junior Women's Indoor Field Hockey Team. Team USA will travel to Bremen and Hamburg, Germany from Jan. 9-14, 2013.

McCullough recently completed her first season as a member of the Quinnipiac field hockey team. The freshman midfielder appeared in 11 games, totaling one goal for two points on the year. Her first career points came against Towson in a 3-1 win on Aug. 26.

 "I am extremely honored to be selected to represent the United States this January in Germany," McCullough said. "Being selected last year to compete in Scotland was one of the biggest athletic accomplishments of my life. To be able to continue this dream I have of playing field hockey at the highest level is absolutely the most exciting thing ever to happen. My USA teammates are incredible players and I am excited to join forces with them to represent our country and our sport. "

McCullough's selection is the third of her career, while the first-year Bobcat will make her second trip overseas of her career.

"It looks like Meghan McCullough is starting off the spring season with a bang in making the team that will travel to Germany," Quinnipiac head coach Becca Main said. "She is a very talented player that excels at the passing game. I am so proud of her progress and we are very much looking forward to seeing what more experience will do to her global game in the off-season."

McCullough previously played for the 2011-12 team that traveled to Scotland. She came to Quinnipiac following a four-year career at Plymouth (Pa.) Whitemarsh High School where she was a two-time All-Area and All-State selection while also earning All-League honors three times.

"I would like to thank my teammates past and present who have pushed me everyday," McCullough said. "Also, my family and coaches for all of their support and for allowing me to have this wonderful opportunity to compete against some of the best players in the world."
