GRAND LAKE, Colo. - University of Connecticut senior midfielder Lauren Kahn (Nanuet, N.Y.) has been named an Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) Second Team All-American for the second straight year as announced by the organization on Tuesday morning.

Kahn, who earned All-Big East First Team honors last month, led the Huskies with 60 points in 2014 on 33 goals and a team-high 27 assists. Her 43 caused turnovers topped all Big East players this season, and she was third in the conference in game-winning goals (3), as she helped Connecticut reach the 10-win plateau for the third straight season.

“I am extremely proud that Lauren earned national All-American honors for the second straight year,” UConn lacrosse coach Katie Woods said. “She is a special player that has taken UConn lacrosse to the national level.”

The UConn midfielder tallied at least six points in five games this year, and she finished her career at Connecticut second all-time in points (216) and fourth in goals (143). The Huskies ended each season with a winning record during Kahn’s career, and UConn made its first ever appearance in the NCAA Tournament in her junior year when she recorded 65 points, the second-highest season total ever by a Husky.

Kahn continued to fill up the stat sheet this season, finishing first in the Big East in ground balls (51) and third in draw controls (44). She once again earned IWLCA Northeast All-Region First Team honors, and her 2.53 caused turnovers a game were the third-best mark among all Division I players. Connecticut was second in the conference with 8.71 caused turnovers a game, and the Huskies qualified for the Big East Tournament for the second straight season.
