THE HAGUE, Netherlands – Former Duke defender Stefanie Fee and the United States’ women’s national field hockey team concluded a historical run at the 2014 Rabobank Hockey World Cup by placing fourth overall.

Team USA faced Argentina in the bronze medal match after suffering a narrow loss to Australia in the semifinals during an overtime shootout. The U.S. had advanced to the semifinal round for the first time in 20 years.

Against Argentina, the world’s second-ranked team, the U.S. responded to an early deficit with a goal by Lauren Crandall in the 11th minute. Argentina found the back of the cage again before the intermission, and despite up tempo play in the second period, the 2-1 score held the remainder of the way.

“Coming into the World Cup with a World Ranking of 10th and finishing the tournament in fourth place justifies the hard work of these athletes,” said U.S. head coach Craig Parnham. “We made changes as a program and the conclusion of the tournament is bearing a little bit of that fruit.”

Team USA opened the World Cup with a 2-1 victory over England and then played Argentina to a 2-2 draw. The squad also defeated China (5-0), Germany (4-1) and South Africa (4-2) to earn a spot in the semifinals.
