Skills and a determination to overcome adversity have landed Lizzie Colson on the U.S. team

Lizzie Colson's first experience with the U.S. team ended in heartbreak, a torn ACL on the final day of a training camp during the summer of 2019. She missed the COVID-shortened 2020 season at the University of Maryland, but was ready for another shot to wear USA. Colson returned to the U.S. team at the tryouts in the summer of 2021 and earned her spot on the team.

Colson joined the long line of outstanding Maryland defenders by being named a Tewaaraton finalist in 2011 — former Terps Megan Douty and Alice Mercer — will be her teammates on this U.S. team, but she'll play a midfield role on the U.S. squad. She's no stranger to having the ball in her stick — she scored 300 goals in her high school career at Manchester Valley (Md.) High School.
