We’ve seen firsthand how great the WPLL has been for the growth of both women’s lacrosse and just lacrosse in general, and we’re excited for the opportunity to be one small part of that in Season 2. We have such a talented group of athletes on the StringKing roster and can’t wait to see them all on the field.
There are six StringKing pros that will be playing in Season Two of the WPLL, Kara Mupo (Command), Alyssa Leonard (Brave), Michaela Duranti (Player Pool), Emily Gillingham (Player Pool), Katrina Dowd (Fight), Shelby Fredericks (Pride).
