Many of the former Terps already have experience representing Team USA. Bernhardt, Dunn and Ehrhardt participated on the 2018 team that won the gold medal at the World Championships. Bernhardt, who is currently a Maryland assistant coach, also competed for the U.S. in 2014.
The United States is looking to defend its crown as reigning champions and will be the No. 1 overall seed out of 30 teams for the event that starts on June 1.
