More than sixty female athletes were chosen Wednesday night in the United Women’s Lacrosse League’s 2018 College Draft, ushering the next wave of stars into the first professional lacrosse league for women.

Overseen by league General Manager Kristan Ash, the UWLX draft featured General Managers and Head Coaches from the Baltimore Ride, Boston Storm, Long Island Sound and Philadelphia Force making selections across 18 rounds.

The first overall pick – owned by Boston as the result of an off-season trade – saw Stony Brook star attacker Kylie Ohlmiller selected as the top player in the draft.

“Season Three is going to be a really exciting year for the league,” said Boston Storm General Manager Andrew Fink.

“When you look at the level of talent coming out of college, it definitely speaks to an even higher level of play moving forward for the UWLX. You can expect the league’s four teams to build really strong rosters for 2018. We are certainly looking forward to it.”

Nearly 30 different colleges and universities were represented in the draft. Stony Brook was the most represented program with seven players selected.

“This is an exciting step for the United Women’s Lacrosse League under its new management,” said Ash, who also serves as the Senior Manager of 3d Lacrosse’s Mid-Atlantic region.

“There are a lot of incredible players competing in the college ranks and we’re thrilled to give them the opportunity to play the game they love at the professional level. We have a lot to offer them both on and off the field and we know it can help grow the game and opportunities in the sport. Thanks to our partnerships with STX Lacrosse and Nike, we know that this season will be the best season yet for the UWLX.”

More information about the 2018 UWLX season will be announced in the coming weeks.
