OSHAWA, Ontario -- University of New Hampshire women's lacrosse head coach Sarah Albrecht was named to the All-World Team as she helped the U.S. Women's National Team win gold at the Federation of International Lacrosse Women's Lacrosse World Cup. Albrecht also received that distinction in 2009 when she also won a gold medal with Team USA.

Albrecht scored a goal, her eighth of the 2013 tournament, in Team USA's 19-5 victory against Canada in the championship game on July 20. She finished the tourney with 12 points (8g, 4a) as part of Team USA's tournament record-setting efforts in goals scored (127), goals per game (18.0) and margin of victory (13.2).

In the July 19 semifinal, a 21-8 victory against England, Albrecht tallied two points with a goal and an assist. One day earlier in the 20-1 quarterfinal win vs. Haudenosaunee, she recorded an assist.

Albrecht opened the 2013 World Cup by tying for the team lead in points (four) with two goals and two assists in a 17-7 win against England on July 11. She then scored one goal against both Wales and Australia and capped pool play with two second-half goals vs. Canada on July 16.

In the '09 World Cup, Albrecht was named to the All-World Team after recording 17 points (14g, 3a) in seven games. Earlier this year (January) at the Champion Challenge, she helped the U.S. Women's National Team to a 3-0 record in games against Northwestern University, Syracuse University and the English women's national team.
