Women's lacrosse notebook: Maryland picks up transfer in high-scoring midfielder Erica Evans

The Maryland's women's lacrosse team picked up a major transfer for next season in former Canisius midfielder Erica Evans, one of 25 Tewaaraton Award semifinalists a year ago.

Evans, who suffered a season-ending ACL injury in the fall, had 186 goals and 60 assists in three seasons at Canisius, where she was a three-time Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Midfielder of the Year.

She announced her plans to transfer Wednesday on Instagram: "I'm excited to announce that I will be finishing my college lacrosse career and college career at the University of Maryland next year! This is such an amazing opportunity and I am so thankful!"

The No. 3 Terps can use her scoring punch next spring after graduating attacker Megan Whittle (McDonogh), who has led them in scoring all four years and needs one goal to break the school's all-time goal-scoring record.

Evans is also a veteran of Canada's national team and was named to the All-World team at last summer's World Cup, where Canada won the silver medal.

"Evans is hands down one of the most exciting players to watch and stole the show at the World Cup over the summer. Short list @Tewaaraton front runner in 2019," Inside Lacrosse women's editor Halley Quillinan Griggs said on Twitter.

Towson on brink of four 100-goal scorers
