New York — Athletes Unlimited today announced that former U.S. national team member Maggie Bill and current players Taylor Cummings, Marie McCool and Kylie Ohlmiller are confirmed to fill four of 56 roster spots in the new lacrosse league to be played July 19-August 22.

Bill, an All-American attacker/midfielder from North Carolina, won an NCAA national championship in 2016 and was a member of the U.S. national team from 2014-16. A two-sport athlete, Bill also played soccer at UNC. 

Cummings, a four-time All-American midfielder from the University of Maryland is a three-time conference champion, two-time NCAA champion and the only three-time Tewaaraton Award winner (men or women’s) in history. She also earned a gold medal with the U.S. women’s national team in 2017 and was named to the All-World team.

McCool, a three-time All-American midfielder at North Carolina, is an NCAA national champion (2016), three-time ACC champion and a former NCAA Midfielder of the Year (2018). She also won a world championship as a member of the U.S. national team in 2017.







Ohlmiller, an attacker from Stony Brook, is a four-time All-American, two-time American East Conference Player of the Year and the NCAA record holder for single-season points, career points and career assists. 

“I am so pumped for the opportunity to get back out on the field with some of the world’s best,” Ohlmiller said. “My hope in joining Athletes Unlimited is to accomplish some really special things to grow the women’s game that haven’t been done before.” 

“We now have 13 members of the U.S. national team, along with 25 other top players, signed on to play this summer in our inaugural season,” said Jon Patricof, CEO and co-founder of Athletes Unlimited.  “Fans are going to be able to see the best players in the world out on the field competing at the highest level when we launch in July.”

Athletes Unlimited Lacrosse will play a short-form, fast-paced format consisting of eight-minute quarters, 9-v-9 gameplay and a 60-second shot clock all housed on an 80-x-50-yard playing field.

Athletes Unlimited Lacrosse will be comprised of 56 players that will roster four teams of 14 players each. Play will begin with draws at the beginning of each quarter as well as after every goal.
