STORRS, Conn. - Two crucial parts of UConn's 2013 field hockey national championship run are back together for the summer. Soon-to-be senior Chrissy Davidson (West Lawn, Pa.) and former Husky standout Marie Elena Bolles (Phoenixville, Pa.) were named as part of the new 30-player roster for Team USA.

The U.S. national team, which jumped up to No. 8 from No. 10 in the world field hockey rankings after a fourth-place finish at the World cup, announced the roster additions on July 4.

Davidson joins the squad after a productive season at UConn in 2013. The midfielder finished tied for third on the team with 12 assists and was tabbed as a NFHCA Mideast Regional Second Team Member. Davidson was also placed on the All-Big East Second Team. She dished out at least one assist in eight of UConn's 25 games and finished fourth in the conference with a 0.57 assist per game mark.

Bolles, one of the most prolific players in UConn field hockey history, was named the Division I National Player of the Year after tallying 17 goals and 14 assists in her senior campaign. She earned a place on the All-Big East First Team for the fourth consecutive year and was tabbed as a First Team All-American for the first time.  Bolles etched her name into the Connecticut record books in 2013, leaving the program with the sixth-most points in history (129).

UConn will begin its title defense on August 31 when it hosts Northwestern for a noon game at the George J. Sherman Family Sports Complex. For a complete look at the 2014 schedule, click here.
