TOWSON, Maryland, USA – The 2022 World Lacrosse Women’s Championship concluded on Saturday after 110 games in 11 days at Towson University, with the United States claiming the gold medal.

The tournament featured 29 teams – the most in a women’s world championship – and more than 500 athletes, with nearly 40,000 tickets sold and 2,034 goals scored.

Almost 200 hours of lacrosse were broadcast by ESPN on its networks at the first women’s world championship with linear television distribution in the United States.

World Lacrosse CEO Jim Scherr said: “This championship was a resounding success, as it featured our incredible game at its highest level on a global stage. I want to thank USA Lacrosse and Towson University for being phenomenal hosts and organizers; it was a great accomplishment to host our largest-ever women’s tournament seamlessly. I am thankful for all the athletes, coaches and staff members who put so much time and effort into the competition, and the product on the field was as compelling as it ever has been. I also want to congratulate the United States for a historic title and for setting the bar of excellence extremely high.”

USA Lacrosse CEO Marc Riccio said: “The World Lacrosse Women’s Championship was an impactful demonstration of the power of lacrosse and sport to bring people together and change lives. USA Lacrosse was honored to work with World Lacrosse to help make this a reality.”

The United States won its ninth overall women’s championship and fourth in a row. The USA became the first team to win a women’s championship on home soil.

The USA’s Taylor Cummings – the tournament MVP – headlined the All-World team. Joining her from the U.S. team were Marie McCool, Alice Mercer and Kayla Treanor.

Silver medalist Canada had three players named to the team: Aurora Cordingley, Dana Dobbie and Kaylin Morrissette. Dobbie has now earned a place on four All-World teams dating back to 2009.

Bronze medalist England had two players named to the All-World team: Olivia Hompe and Brittany Read. Hompe scored the game-winning goal in the third overtime to secure the bronze medal for her team.

Australia’s Hannah Nielsen rounded out the All-World team. She was one of four repeat selections from 2017, joining Cummings, Dobbie and Treanor.

Japan; the Czech Republic; Mexico and Hong Kong, China all recorded their best-ever finishes at the championship and the United States, Canada and Israel all tied their best finishes. The Haudenosaunee improved four spots from 2017, and Puerto Rico had the best finish of all the first-time participants in 11th place.
