    Lacrosse Season Ends With 12-9 Loss To No. 14 Loyola
    The 2012 women's lacrosse season ended with a 12-9 defeat at home at the hands of No. 14 Loyola. The Huskies end the year 10-6 (3-5 BIG EAST) while Loyola advanced to the BIG EAST Tournament in Syracuse, N.Y. at 11-5 (7-1 BIG EAST).

    Connecticut had a wildly successful weekend, dropping Marquette 15-4 on Friday, and then taking down then-ranked No. 6 Notre Dame, 10-7, on Sunday at the Sherman Family Sports Complex. It marked the first time since 2005 that UConn has defeated its rivals from South Bend, and came as one of the signature wins of this 2013 season.

    Two Huskies received accolades after their stellar performances over the weekend.  Freshman goalkeeper Shannon Nee was named the BIG EAST Defensive player of the week after holding opponents to just 11 goals over the two games. Nee recorded 10 saves against the Fighting Irish, and committed just one turnover.  

    Also earning praise for her impressive weekend was senior Morgan O’Reilly, who was named to the BIG EAST Honor Roll after tallying five points over the two games this weekend. The senior scored four times against Notre Dame, including the eventual game-winner.

    The Huskies closed out a perfect 7-0 season at home, which marks the first time in the history of the program that they have been undefeated in Storrs. Third year head coach Katie Woods, who entered the season with a 19-13 career record at UConn, has turned Connecticut into one of the up-and-coming and most exciting schools to watch this season.

    The Huskies will have one more away game at Loyola Maryland on Sunday, April 26th before preparing for postseason action.
