Maryland women’s lacrosse seniors Nadine Hadnagy, Zoe Stukenberg and Caroline Wannen were each drafted into the United Women’s Lacrosse League Monday night. Britt Poist, who graduated from Maryland in 2011, also got drafted. They will be playing in a league that is only in its second season.
Stukenberg, Wannen and Poist were all drafted by the Baltimore Ride. They will be joining former Terps Taylor Cummings, Brooke Griffin, Laura Merrifield and Katie Schwarzmann. In fact, Schwarzmann was the first player taken in the league’s inaugural draft last year.
The Long Island Sound drafted Hadnagy Monday night. She will be playing on a team that also features former Terps Alice Mercer, Kelly McPartland and Erin Collins.
Maryland graduate Casey Pepperman also played in the league last year for the Philadelphia Force.
The UWLX is the only women’s professional lacrosse league. It only features four teams and begins its season on May 27. That same weekend is the NCAA Women’s lacrosse championships, so the three seniors may have to wait to make their UWLX debuts.
