Katie Gerzabek‘s college career is going pretty well.

The 2010 Academy of Notre Dame graduate and two-time Daily Times Player of the Year already has a national championship to her name. She’s racked up 27 goals and 24 assists in two seasons as a Maryland Terrapin. The Springfield resident was also a 2011 ACC All-Academic pick.

Her latest achievement, though, might be the most impressive. Gerzabek was named to the U.S. Junior World Cup team Friday and she and 17 of the country’s best players will represent Team U.S.A in Monchengladbach, Germany, July 27-August 4.

From the press release…

“Held every four years, the Junior World Cup represents the top international event for elite field hockey athletes under the age of 21.

The selection process for the Junior World Cup team spanned over four events, including the Women’s National Championship, U-21 Women’s National Championship, Futures Elite Championship and National Futures Championship. From the four events, 34-players were selected to attend Junior National Camp. The final squad was trimmed to 18-players plus three replacement athletes.

Gerzabek was a three-time All-Delco at Notre Dame and the 2009 and 2010 Daily Times Player of the Year in addition to being a three-time All-Inter-Ac selection.
