Watertown’s Jonna Kennedy will be traveling to Ireland in April to represent her country on the Under 17 National Field Hockey Team.
The squad was one of three Junior National Teams selected following intense training camps over the weekend in North Carolina.
Kennedy, a junior at Watertown High School, plays goalie for the Raiders and served as a captain this fall. The team will head to Ireland from April 11-18 to play three games against Ireland.
“We are excited to have this opportunity to play over in Europe against Ireland,” said U17 head coach Martin. “The team has had two great training weekends and we are looking forward to playing together and representing the United States in Dublin. I am thankful to have two great coaches join me, Jen Stone and Kelly Doton, on this tour.
“Selections were very difficult this year because there are so many talented players on this U-17 squad. That goes to show the junior development in this country from a club, school and within the Futures Program is moving in the right direction.”
USA Field Hockey also announced an Under 19 National Team that will tour Germany and an Under-21 National Team which is heading to England.
