BOTTERI AIDS TEAM USA RUN AT PAN AM GAMES
BOTTERI AIDS USA'S BRONZE MEDAL EFFORT
BARQUISIMETO, Venezuela – Virginia Commonwealth University sophomore Megan Botteri (Mount Bethel, Pa.) can add a bronze medal to her resume.
Botteri, who started 17 games in goal for the VCU Field Hockey team in 2009, recently aided Team USA on its run to a third place finish at the Pan Am Games indoor tournament.
After a disappointing loss to Uruguay in the semifinals, Team USA scored a 2-1 victory over Trinidad Sunday to secure the bronze.
The Pennsylvania native played all but 83 minutes between the pipes for the Rams in 2009. She finished 8-9 with a 2.14 goals-against-average and a .724 save percentage. She will be one of six returning VCU starters this fall.
