Former Maryland women's lacrosse superstar Taylor Cummings was officially crowned as the first-ever Athletes Unlimited champion on Sunday. Cummings accumulated the most points in the Athletes Unlimited league, which has 58 different professionals who compete.

“It’s a huge honor,” Cummings said in a press release. “It’s incredibly humbling, especially when you’re around so many amazing players. To be on amazing teams and around amazing people throughout this season was just so special.”

Cummings, who graduated from Maryland in 2016, played in 15 games and collected 1,943 points in the league, which was 190 points more than the second-place player. During the season she totaled 27 goals and 11 assists, won 79 draw controls, and caused 17 turnovers.

Cummings was a two-time national champion at Maryland and became a three-time Tewaaraton Award winner within the program. Her latest achievement in the Athletes Unlimited league is just another impressive accolade to her long list of success.
