ARLINGTON, Va. – Although the season has been over for a month, the awards continue to roll in for the reigning ECAC Champion, Marymount (Va.) University women's lacrosse team, as juniors Abby Wescott and Liah Agouras were named to the 2017 VaSID College Women's Lacrosse All-State Team.
Both Saints made their way onto second team, a first-time honor for Wescott and the second-straight year for Agouras. The accolade comes after each earned spots on the All-Capital Athletic Conference Second Team.
The duo helped the squad to the most successful season in program history, registering the most wins with a 13-6 tally while earning the program's first ECAC title with a crushing 11-3 victory over Misericordia in the championship game back on May 14.
Wescott had a career season, ranking second in the country in assists (65) and 15th in points (97). The 65 assists in her junior season takes over the top spot in a single season in program history, previously held by her sophomore-season total of 52. Her 97 points fell just one shy of the single-season record, but midway through the season her career-point total eclipsed the top spot in program history, as she sits with 229 entering her senior year. Additionally, she marked the new CAC and program record in assists in a single game with 11 against Ohio Northern University, a tally that sat atop the country all season.
Agouras, a key cog in the defensive line for the Saints again this year, led the CAC in ground balls (62) and caused turnovers (37). Starting in all 19 games this year, she set new career bests in the first round of the ECAC Championship at Marywood University, notching game highs of eight ground balls and six caused turnovers. She added three goals throughout the season, bringing her career total to 10 with an assist for 11 points. Entering her senior season, she sits with 120 ground balls and 67 caused turnovers, a tally that lands her sixth in program history.
