    GRAND LAKE, Colo. – Four University of Connecticut women’s lacrosse players were honored by the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) as announced by the organization on Monday afternoon.

    Senior midfielder Lauren Kahn (Nanuet, N.Y.) and sophomore goalkeeper Shannon Nee (Lancaster, Pa.) were both named to the IWLCA Northeast All-Region First Team for the second straight year, while midfielder Kacey Pippitt (New Canaan, Conn.) once again earned All-Northeast Region Second Team. Sophomore defender Lauren Kwasnowski (Kingston, N.Y.) also earned Second Team honors, as she picked up IWLCA accolades for the first time as a Husky.

    Kahn, who was named to the All-Big East First Team in April, led UConn in points (60) and assists (27) this past season. Her 33 goals were the second-highest mark among all Connecticut players, and she led all Big East players in ground balls (51), caused turnovers (43) and assists per game (1.59) in 2014. She was named to the 2013 IWLCA Second Team All-America, and she finished her UConn career second in points (216) and fourth in goals (143).

    Nee, another All-Big East First Team selection, had a solid year in the cage for Connecticut ,as she won 10 games for the second straight season and recorded at least 10 saves in a game five times throughout the year. She was named the Big East Defensive Player of the Week four times during the season, and she turned in a brilliant performance in UConn’s 16-8 loss to Georgetown in the conference semifinals, recording nine first half saves against the Hoyas.


     

     

    Pippitt led the Huskies this past season with 60 draw controls, which were the second-highest total in the Big East. Her 43 points were the third-highest total on Connecticut, and she netted a career-high six goals in UConn’s 15-4 win over Villanova on Senior Day. The UConn midfielder recorded a season-high seven draw controls against Rutgers on April 5th and she finished the season with two game-winning goals.

    Kwasnowski was an integral part of a Connecticut defense that was third in the Big East in goals against average (9.82). She was third on the team in caused turnovers (11) and she was one of six Huskies to end the year with at least 10 draw controls. Kwasnowski, who started every game this season, joined Kahn and Nee on the All-Big East First Team and totaled 15 ground balls in 2014.
