Cummings all-around dominance helped the United States win its fourth straight world championship this summer. The U.S. went undefeated, beating Canada 11-8 in the gold medal game at Towson University.
Cummings had 17 points, on 12 goals and five assists, in the tournament and also had 26 draw controls and USA-leading totals of nine ground balls and six caused turnovers to earn MVP honors. She was named to the all-world team for the second straight world championship.
Earlier in the 2021-22 campaign, Cummings finished atop the leaderboard in the inaugural season of the Athletes Unlimited professional women’s lacrosse league.
