April 2, 2023 — A celebration worthy of an all-world crew


They celebrated 50 years of varsity girls’s lacrosse on the College of Maryland immediately.

From a banquet within the days earlier than immediately’s recreation in opposition to Michigan, to the pregame tailgate to the halftime ceremony, luminaries from the sport’s previous got here again to Faculty Park for the anniversary celebration.

It was a celebration with so many gamers from so many profitable groups, you possibly can conceivably put collectively an alumnae crew which might compete anyplace, any time, on any stage.

The Maryland program has put collectively excellence in objective (Megan Taylor, Jamie Brodsky), in shut protection (Alice Mercer, Tori Wellington, Brittany Poist, Courtney Martinez), within the midfield (Kelly Amonte, Laura Zimmerman, Quinn Carney, Kali Harshorn, Karri Ellen Johnson, Acacia Walker, Dana Dobbie), and at assault (Jen Adams, Taylor Cummings, Megan Whittle, Sarah Mollison).

It’s been good to see some alumnae taking part in within the skilled ranks during the last 4 or 5 years, however I’d wish to have seen extra of this sort of post-collegiate skilled play across the flip of the century. However with quite a lot of skilled promotions having cycled out and in of existence the final 5 years, I assume the easiest way to pay tribute to the gamers of the previous is to have a good time and put money into the most effective gamers which might be within the recreation immediately, regardless of which promotion involves the forefront.
