PALO ALTO, Calif. – Former Blue Devil All-American and U.S. women’s national team member Stefanie Fee earned her 100th international cap Tuesday during a four-game series with The Netherlands.
Fee has been a defender on the senior national team since graduating from Duke in 2012. She competed with Team USA at the 2016 Rio Olympics, helping the squad reach the quarterfinal round. Fee was also previously a member of the U.S. team that captured gold and punched its ticket to Rio at the 2015 Pan American Games.
A standout on the back line for the Blue Devils, Fee started every game for Duke during her four years in Durham. She garnered All-America, All-ACC and ACC All-Tournament Team accolades as a senior in 2011, in addition to being named to the Longstreth/National Field Hockey Coaches Association All-South Region first team. During her collegiate career, Fee guided the Blue Devils to a pair of NCAA quarterfinals appearances and a trip to the ACC title match in 2011.
Another former Duke standout, Lauren Blazing, was also on the U.S. roster for the series with The Netherlands and saw time in several matches against the top-ranked team in the world. A goalkeeper who graduated from the university in 2016, Blazing owns seven caps as a member of Team USA. She joined Fee as a member of the U.S. team that took gold at the 2015 Pan American Games and has also previously competed internationally with the U.S. U21 junior national team.
A three-time All-American at Duke, Blazing concluded an impressive collegiate career by leading the Blue Devils to the NCAA semifinals for the second time in three years in 2015. She compiled a 49-29 ledger in four seasons as Duke’s starting goalkeeper and graduated ranked third in program history in career saves (385) and goals against average (1.39).
The U.S. women’s national team will next compete in a closed test series against Canada Feb. 21-25.
