An historic moment took place yesterday when the New York Lizards of Major League Lacrosse claimed Devon Wills off the Player Pool. She has the chance to be the first ever female lacrosse player to make a professional field team. Quint’s words aren’t exactly encouraging, but he doesn’t degrade Wills either.
Wills has been in the U.S. Lacrosse Player pool since 2007 participating in two FIL World Cups and backstopping the U.S. National Team to two Gold Medals including the most recent win over Canada this past summer when she was also named to the FIL World Cup All-World Team. Wills will have a chance to fight for a spot on the first team at the beginning of April when the Lizards convene for training camp.
