Four members of the American Family Insurance ALL-USA Girls Lacrosse team were named to the World Team at the Federation of International Lacrosse’s U19 Women’s World Championships in Scotland.

The four were part of a Team USA squad that won the silver medal after a heartbreaking 9-8 loss to Canada in the gold medal game Sunday. It was the first loss in the event by the Americans since a defeat at the hands of Australia in the finals of the 1995 championship.

The World Team is the event’s version of an all-tournament team with the top performers from the teams involved. All four U.S. players selected are recent high school graduates on their way to college.

* Francesca Whitehurst. She was named the ALL-USA Player of the Year in helping Roland Park Country Day in Baltimore to a state runner-up finish in Maryland. She is heading to Georgetown. Whitehurst had an assist in the final.

* Lindsey Ronbeck. The ALL-USA first-team attack from Manhasset (N.Y.) is heading to the University of Florida. Ronbeck, who had a five-goal game earlier in the event, had two goals in the final.

* Nikki Ortega. The ALL-USA first-team attack from Centerreach (N.Y.) is heading to Notre Dame. Ortega scored a goal in the final.

* Miranda Ibello. The ALL-USA second teamer from Maryvale Prep in Brooklandville, Md., is heading to Johns Hopkins. Ibello had a goal in the final.
