US Lacrosse on Thursday announced Cortney Fortunato has been named to the training team for the 2017 Federation of International Lacrosse Women’s World Cup. Fortunato, a two-time IWLCA First-Team All-American, is one of 25 players selected to represent the United States.
The training team was selected from a pool of 36 players and will compete in Florida next January at the Team USA Spring Premiere. Fortunato, who on Wednesday was named one of Notre Dame’s four captains, joins 11 other current or former Atlantic Coast Conference student-athletes on the roster.
Fortunato, a two-time Tewaaraton Award Nominee, surpassed her own record of 56 goals (2015) in a single season with 64 goals last season, the fourth-most in a single season in Irish history. She led the team in points, goals and assists and currently ranks second all-time in career goals (166).
