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.

Botteri shared time in goal with Donna Chung throughout the tournament, her second international event since the conclusion of her freshman year at VCU. Botteri helped the U.S. squad take fourth at the 2010 Wasa Cup in Denmark in January.
 
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.
