Pair of Hokies selected in UWLX 2018 College Draft

BOSTON — More than sixty female athletes were chosen Wednesday night in the United Women’s Lacrosse League’s 2018 College Draft, ushering the next wave of stars into the first professional lacrosse league for women.

Overseen by league General Manager Kristan Ash, the UWLX draft featured General Managers and Head Coaches from the Baltimore Ride, Boston Storm, Long Island Sound and Philadelphia Force making selections across 18 rounds.

The first overall pick – owned by Boston as the result of an off-season trade – saw Stony Brook star attacker Kylie Ohlmiller selected as the top player in the draft.

“Season Three is going to be a really exciting year for the league,” said Boston Storm General Manager Andrew Fink.

“When you look at the level of talent coming out of college, it definitely speaks to an even higher level of play moving forward for the UWLX. You can expect the league’s four teams to build really strong rosters for 2018. We are certainly looking forward to it.”

Nearly 30 different colleges and universities were represented in the draft.

Kelly Glatthorn was selected 47th by the Philadelphia Force and Marissa Davey was chosen 52nd by the Long Island Sound.
