Wills Battles the Boys

| No Comments

USC women's lacrosse assistant coach Devon Wills is in training camp with the New York Lizards trying to earn a spot in the all-male Major League Lacrosse.  The women's national team goalie is quickly adjusting to life at the sport's highest level.

"The speed of the release [is different]," she said about the major differences. "But it's also what's going on in front. They shoot a lot of shots with screens in front of you. In the women's game, that just doesn't happen."

While Wills only had a weekend to show off her skills before returning to USC, head coach Joe Spallina was impressed. "I thought she was great today," he said. "She showed she can play."

Wills is back with the Trojans now awaiting word on whether or not she made the cut.  The Women of Troy end their regular season on April 27, which coincides with the Lizards season opener.
