USA Lacrosse announced its 18-player roster as it gets ready to host the world championship from June 29 – July 9 at Towson University in Maryland.
Returning champions Becca Block, Meg Douty, Marie McCool and Kayla Treanor will aim to earn the U.S. its fourth consecutive gold medal. The quartet defeated Team Canada, 10-5, in 2017 helped by two goals from McCool.
2021 Athletes Unlimited Lacrosse Champion Taylor Cummings and No. 18 finisher Emily Parros will also compete with Team USA.
Sam Apuzzo, Dempsey Arsenault, Lizzie Colson, Ally Kennedy, Kylie Ohlmiller and Caylee Waters will be making their senior world championship debut for the U.S.
Waters (1,753 points) and Apuzzo (1,685 points) finished in the final four of Athletes Unlimited Lacrosse’s inaugural season in 2021. Apuzzo led the league in goals with 36.
“We are excited to announce a dynamic and talented group of women who will represent the United States in this summer’s World Lacrosse Women’s World Championship,” said head coach Jenny Levy.
“Our journey to this point has been anything but normal. These women possess a passion and love of lacrosse which is demonstrated through their tireless preparation, engagement and energy. Beyond their tough and inspiring on-field play, they have been true pioneers for our sport. These qualities make for an incredibly special group to take onto the world stage of competition this summer.”
The world championship will be the first world championship contested in the United States since 2005. The U.S. is the top seed for the event, followed by Canada, who earned the silver medal in 2017.
