TEMPE -- On the heels of winning a silver medal at the recently completed FINA Intercontinental Tournament held last month in Riverside, Calif, the USA Women's Senior National Team has announced its roster for the FINA World League Super Final and Arizona State University junior goalkeeper E.B. Keeve was among the selections.
Head Coach Adam Krikorian has selected 13 athletes to compete in China, many who helped Team USA qualify for this event just two weeks ago in Riverside.
Keeve was the starting goalkeeper in four contests at the FINA Intercontinental Tournament, including the championships game where the U.S. came just shy of the Australians in a 7-5 decision.
Earlier in the tournament, Keeve recorded an incredible 20 saves against Canada in a game that went to a shootout – including the game-winning save to seal the game in the United States’ favor, 12-11.
Keeve most recently led the Sun Devil water polo team to its first ever NCAA Tournament appearance, culminating in a fifth-place finish nationally while she also set the NCAA Tourney record with 20 saves in the Sun Devils’ victory over Indiana.
The action in China begins on June 10 and concludes on June 15. A complete tournament schedule will be available closer to the start of competition. Team USA has a strong history in this competition, winning the gold medal in seven of the last eight years.
