The only player to ever win the Tewaaraton Award three times, midfielder Taylor Cummings is one of the most decorated players in the sport’s history. She’s also one of the winningest

Taylor Cummings lost one game in four years of high school lacrosse at national powerhouse McDonogh, helping usher in the school’s epic winning streak that eventually reached a national record straight 198 games. She lost a combined total of four games in four years of college lacrosse at Maryland, helping the Terps win two national championships. She’s never lost a game wearing a Team USA uniform in international competition, helping the U.S. win gold at the World Cup in 2017 in England and at The World Games in Poland, also in 2017.

One of the top scorers in Maryland history, Cummings  has made her mark all over the lacrosse field throughout her career. She’s a dominant draw specialist, causes havoc in the transition game, can lock down opponents defensively and is also a potent offensive threat with the ball in her stick. She’s been a mainstay of the national team program since first suiting up in 2014.
