NEW YORK -- Goaltender Devon Wills has become the first woman to be selected by a Major League Lacrosse team.
The New York Lizards claimed Wills from the player pool. The move means Wills likely will have a chance to make the team at training camp in April.
Wills, an assistant coach for the women's team at Southern California, was a collegiate star at Dartmouth and helped the United States win gold in the 2009 and 2013 World Cups.
The Denver native says the selection by the Lizards is a "huge honour." She also says in a release on Tuesday that she's excited to see if she is good enough to make the team.
