Players to Watch

Everybody. But we’ll go ahead and list one intriguing player from the U.S. and Canadian senior teams and the college teams from Maryland and Virginia.

Dox Aitken, Virginia: A midfielder with size and range, Aitken is one of the top offensive forces in college lacrosse. The senior was a first team All-American the last two years and set a Virginia record for midfielders with 44 goals in helping the Cavaliers win an NCAA title. He enters his senior year with 112 career goals, already the most ever for a midfielder in the storied history of the Virginia program. Aitken played in the very first competition on Tierney Field in the summer of 2016, a training camp for the U.S. U19 team that won a gold medal in Canada.

Erica Evans, Canada: Evans might be ready to become the face of the Canadian women’s program. She rewrote the record book at Canisius in three seasons playing for Canada’s head coach Scott Teeter before missing the 2018 season with an injury. She transferred to Maryland for her final year and helped the Terps win the national title last spring after scoring 59 goals. She was an all-world selection in 2017 and helped Canada’s 2015 U19 team to its stunning gold medal victory, earning all-world honors there as well.

Brindi Griffin, Maryland: Griffin came into her own last season with a career-best 68 points. The top returning scorer for the Terps, she was dominant down the stretch with six goals in Maryland’s NCAA semifinal win over Northwestern and a hat trick in the championship game victory over Boston College. She’s got plenty of USA connections as well. She was a silver medalist on the 2015 U.S. U19 team and her older sister, Brooke, won gold with the 2017 U.S. team.

Jarrod Neumann, USA: The defender who took the Premier Lacrosse League by storm this summer is one of five U.S. players participating in a national team event for the first time. The Providence graduate earned All-Pro honors in the PLL for his prowess in harassing opponents with his defense and for his transition skills to offense that included him scoring five 2-point goals.

Kylie Ohlmiller, USA: Ohlmiller narrowly missed making the 2017 U.S. team roster while still a collegian and has become a fixture of the U.S. team program the last couple of years. Ohlmiller is known equally for her staggering numbers at Stony Brook – an NCAA record 498 career points — and her electrifying stick work. Combining that with the creative offensive minds like Katrina Dowd, Kayla Treanor and Michelle Tumolo is a sight to behold.

Jeff Teat, Canada: The three-time All-American enters his senior season at Cornell with an outside chance to break Rob Pannell’s all-time points record at the Ivy League school. His 137 assists in three seasons are a testament to his outstanding vision and field awareness. He’s one of those special players that makes everyone around him better. Teat was Canada’s leading scorer with 21 points (8g, 13a) at the 2018 world championship in Israel.

The Brodgen Cup

The Brodgen Cup, formed in 1988 as a post-collegiate club event between the U.S. and Canada, will be on the line with the eight games between the USA Select and Team Ontario teams. The teams will play four games at St. Paul’s School on Saturday before four games at US Lacrosse on Sunday. A Ryder Cup-style format means that the U.S. will have to win more than four games (ties are allowed) to secure the Cup.

World Lacrosse Trial Rules

Following the Brogden Cup games on Sunday, the Canadian and U.S. men’s and women’s teams will play exhibition games utilizing the trial rules for a new discipline of the sport developed by World Lacrosse. These rules are being tested as World Lacrosse aims to best position the sport for potential inclusion in the Olympics.
