The September/October edition of US Lacrosse Magazine features U.S. women's national team star Kelly Rabil wearing a U.S. flag after her team took home the gold medal in the FIL World Cup.

Inside the September/October Edition of US Lacrosse Magazine


The U.S. women's national team made a statement this summer — two statements to be exact.

With a gold medal victory over Canada in the FIL Women's World Cup in Guildford, England on July 22, and the same result in the World Games final in Wroclaw Poland on July 30, the U.S. women's national team is again on top of the world. Team USA's Kelly Rabil graces our cover. Through a wild summer, the U.S. women's national team helped take the game of lacrosse to another level.

Also in the September/October edition of US Lacrosse Magazine, a story on how Utah might be changing the landscape of lacrosse domestically, Casey Powell's road to becoming a first-ballot Hall of Famer and we put lacrosse's greatest unspoken truths to the test with our MythBusters package.

Letters

From the CEO
The U.S. women's national team's appearance in the 2017 World Games was a transformative step for the sport of lacrosse — the first multi-sport event for lacrosse in almost 70 years.

From the Editor
New Zealand's run to eighth in the FIL Women's World Cup showed us that the gap between the elite and the rest of the world in narrowing, and that's a good thing for lacrosse.
