Good morning. Here's the latest from the lacrosse world:

1. The U.S. men are one step closer to San Diego.

U.S. men’s head coach John Danowski announced a roster of 50 players that will be invited to a training camp in late September as preparations continue for next summer’s world championship. The roster includes 18 players with international experience, including seven gold medalists from the 2018 U.S. team.

2. Athletes Unlimited is back in action.

Week 2 of the Athletes Unlimited season got underway on Thursday night at USA Lacrosse headquarters. Team Apuzzo kept its captain, Sam Apuzzo, undefeated for the season with a 12-6 victory over Team Johansen. Charlotte North’s two-pointer broke a 6-6 tie late in the third quarter to spur the victory.

In the second game of the night, Team Moreno outscored Team Aresenault 4-0 in the third quarter to key a 12-10 victory. Cortney Fortunato had two goals and an assist in the pivotal quarter. Taylor Moreno made 13 saves to continue her hot start to the season.

3. Former Stanford star Kyra Pelton has her eye on the future.

Our Beth Ann Mayer caught up with Athletes Unlimited’s Kyra Pelton who is a winner on and off the field.

4. Marge Donovan is headed to Maryland.

Maryland’s women’s lacrosse team added a key player for 2023 with the addition of Marge Donovan. The former Princeton star won a silver medal with the U.S. women’s Sixes team in Birmingham, Ala., earlier this month.
