Local Players Help U.S. Win Third Straight International Lacrosse Women's World Cup

July 25, 2017
Led by a group of players with Maryland ties, the United States won its third straight Federation of International Lacrosse Women's World Cup championship in Guildford, England.

Sarah Bullard scored three goals to lead the U.S. past Canada, 10-5, for the championship July 22. Marie McCool and Laura Zimmerman had two goal apiece for the U.S.

Katie Schwarzmann (Century, Maryland) also added a goal, and Taylor Cummings (McDonogh, Maryland) had a pair of assists.

In addition to Schwarzmann and Cummings, other local players on the roster were Allyson Carey (John Carroll, Vanderbilt), Kristen Carr (Mercy, North Carolina), Brooke Griffin (South River, Maryland), Alice Mercer (Century, Maryland) and Kelly Rabil (Hammond, James Madison).

Maryland alums Alexandra Aust and Megan Douty also made the final roster.

The U.S. went unbeaten in pool play, outscoring its opponents, 86-21, and was the top seed for the playoffs. The U.S. is now 60-6-1 in the competition and has eight titles overall.

"It's really indescribable," said Bullard, a Duke alum. "Even after being through this a few times before, it's different with every single group. I'm proud of how my teammates handled it out there today and throughout this whole tournament."
