Iowa field-hockey players Karli Johansen and Stephanie Norlander have been selected to compete in the ERGO Field Hockey Junior World Cup, Saturday-Aug. 4, in Germany as members of the U21 Canadian National Team.

Johansen and Norlander are products of Handsworth Secondary School in North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada — the same school as former Iowa All-American Jessica Barnett.

Johansen, who will serve as a co-captain for the Canadian team, has played in 49 career games and made 44 starts for the Hawkeyes. She was named to the Big Ten All-Tournament team as a sophomore and junior. Johansen was selected to the Canadian Women’s National Team in April, and played for the Canadian Junior National Team that faced Argentina and Chile in June of 2012 and the squad that completed the European Tour in July of 2012. Johansen was also selected to compete for the Canadian Junior National Team at the 2012 Pan American Championship.

Norlander, selected to the Canadian Junior Development Squad in April, led Handsworth to Provincial Championship titles in 2011 and 2012, serving as a co-captain in 2012. The forward/midfielder was also named captain of the U17 Canadian Junior National team for a test series against the USA after being chosen to the team in the summer of 2011.

Team Canada will compete in Pool B with Argentina, China, and Russia. The team will open competition on Saturday against Argentina, before facing China (July 28) and Russia (July 30).
