CALGARY, Alta. – Twenty-four of the nation’s top players will head south of the border for the second leg of the Rivalry Series, Dec. 15-19 in Henderson, Nev., and Los Angeles, Calif.

“We are excited about the roster we have assembled for the next two games as we incorporate new players into our lineup and test out new line combinations,” said Kingsbury. “The depth of our women’s program allows us to continue to evaluate ourselves as we look ahead to the next women’s worlds, and we look forward to another competitive series with the Americans.”
