Lawn Competes For USA Field Hockey At Jr. Olympics


Pasadena resident Becca Lawn was one of approximately 110 girls who participated in the USA Field Hockey Amateur Athletic Union Junior Olympics Games on the campus of Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, over a several-day period spanning late July and early August.

The AAU Junior Olympic Games are described by USA Field Hockey as the largest multi-port event for youth in the United States, providing U16 female athletes the opportunity to experience an Olympic-style, multi-sport competition while enjoying the camaraderie and inspiration from top athletes in other featured sports.

Lawn, 15, was one of seven players from Maryland to earn an invite to the U16 event, which split the USA players into seven teams for a round-robin tournament. Lawn is a rising sophomore at Archbishop Spalding.
