All about the spirit of competition, The World Games has made a candidacy requirement that ‘all voters shall act in accordance with fair play in sport.”

Murray has been a member of the U.S. national team since 2014 after a career at Syracuse during which she was a two-time Tewaaraton Award finalist. The attacker led the U.S. in goals (14) and points (19) in five games during its England tour in the summer of 2016. She helped the U.S. to 4-0 record at the 2016 Team USA Fall Classic with seven goals and six assists.

When women’s lacrosse made its debut at The World Games in 2017, Murray led all scorers with 19 points (12 goals). The U.S. went undefeated and won the gold medal.
