Devon Wills, an assistant coach for USC's women's lacrosse team who was a collegiate star at Dartmouth, was the first woman selected by a Major League Lacrosse team.

The New York Lizards claimed Wills from the player pool, meaning she likely will have a chance to make the team at training camp in April.

Wills, a Denver native, called the selection a "huge honor," and said she's excited to see if she can make the team.

“As a little kid my dream, like most kids, was to become a professional athlete,” Wills said before she was selected. “I was approached by some people to consider entering the player pool and I thought it would be a great learning experience. It was a chance to help grow the game that I couldn’t pass up.”
Wills was a three-time All American at Dartmouth and led the Big Green to its first NCAA title game as a senior in 2006.
