An all around athlete, Ilona Maher lettered in field hockey, basketball and soccer before fully transitioning to rugby during her collegiate career at Quinnipiac University. There, not only did Maher earn All-American Honors, but she lead her teammates to three titles in the National Intercollegiate Rugby Association (NIRA).

In 2017, she was also honored with the MA Sorenson Award, delivered to the best women's rugby player in college athletics.

After a standout performance in early 2018, helping Scion Rugby Academy earn the 2018 Las Vegas Invitational's Elite title, Maher made her international debut at the 2018 Paris Sevens tournament. From there she was selected to compete at Rugby World Cup Sevens 2018, helping the Women's Sevens finish fourth at the first-ever U.S. hosted Rugby World Cup.
