March 8, 2021 — Athletes Unlimited adds four power players to its lacrosse league

The usual way that sides are formed in the sports leagues in Athletes Unlimited is that captains are picked due to their statistical excellence during their previous game, then the captains select the teams for the next round of games.

Today, the upcoming Athletes Unlimited lacrosse league announced the signing of four players who are likely to vie for weekly captaincies because of their all-around excellence.

The players are three-time Tewaaraton Trophy-winner Taylor Cummings, and fellow U.S. national team members Kylie Ohlmiller, Marie McCool, and Maggie Bill.

These four players join the likes of Kenzie Kent, Michelle Tumolo, Sam Apuzzo, Kayla Treanor, Dempsey Arsenault, Katrina Dowd, and Kristen Carr on the league roster, which will be divided into four teams every week for the summer season. The league starts July 19 and runs through Aug. 22nd at sites yet to be determined.

Right now, 38 out of 56 players in AU have been identified. And I have a feeling there will be a flood of players coming into the league sometime after Memorial Day, with college seniors graduating. Plus, I think you’re going to see some folks coming in from the coaching ranks, such as Dana Dobbie, Kali Hartshorn, and Kristen Igoe.

It should be an interesting summer.
