DURHAM, N.C. - Three Blue Devils were named to the 2012 Jr. Pan American Selection Squad as announced earlier this week by USA Field Hockey.  Sophomores Abby Beltrani and Lauren Blazing along with incoming freshman Aileen Johnson were named to the prestigious under-21 roster.  Eighteen women from this list will be selected to compete in the 2012 Pan American Games on September 7-23, at Guadalajara, Mexico. 

Beltrani played in all 22 games during her rookie year, starting in one.  The East Setauket, N.Y., native earned her first collegiate point with an assist against Virginia. 

Goalkeeper Blazing did not see any game action during the 2011 season but will have an opportunity to earn her minutes now that All-American Samantha Nelson has graduated.  Prior to Duke, the Chapel Hill, N.C., native was a four-time team MVP at Durham Academy.

Johnson looks to make an immediate impact in her rookie campaign with the Blue Devils.  During her prep career, the Long Branch, N.J., native twice earned All-America and All-State honors.  The Shore Regional High School graduate also currently holds her high schools record for most goals in a single season and most goals in a single game. 

Incoming Freshman Hannah Barreca was also selected to the 2013 under-21 squad from which the 2013 Junior World Cup team will be selected.
