Longstreth Sporting Goods proudly announces a special event to kick off the Lacrosse Season. Professional women’s lacrosse athlete, Marie McCool will run a demonstration and meet and greet at Longstreth’s Spring City, PA campus.
Marie McCool was the second overall pick of the 2018 Women’s Professional Lacrosse League College Draft. McCool who was the two-way midfielder from the University of North Carolina, became part of the WPLL’s Baltimore Brave. Marie was named the MVP of the WPLL last summer, in its inaugural year.
Marie is perhaps the most decorated player in UNC women’s lacrosse history. She is the only two-time Tewaaraton Award finalist in Carolina history (2017, 2018). One of eight UNC players to be named first-team All-ACC three times and one of three to be a three-time first-team All-America. McCool was named 2018 National Midfielder of the Year and is the first player in ACC history to win the ACC Mid-fielder of the Year award twice. She was and still is a member of the US Lacrosse World Cup team. She played in England in July 2017, one of two college players on the squad.
