Danbury, Conn. - May 28, 2019 - Three members of the Springfield College women's lacrosse team received recognition for their impressive seasons, as they earned All-Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division III Women's Lacrosse honors, announced late last week.
Sophomore attacker Kate Sarnacki (Granby, Mass.) and senior defender Andie Stone (Burlington, Conn.) earned All-ECAC First Team accolades, while senior defender Taylor Kane (Woburn, Mass.) was selected to the All-ECAC Second Team.
Sarnacki, a sophomore attacker and Sports Biology major at Springfield College, had a record-breaking season for the Pride, collecting 92 points on 62 goals and 30 assists. Sarnacki's 92 points this season is a program record for the maroon and white, as she surpassed the previous record of 87 points which was posted by Shelby Corsano in 2018. Sarnacki was instrumental in leading the Pride to its fourth NEWMAC title in the last eight seasons as her six points fueled Springfield College to an 11-10 victory over Babson in the championship contest. Sarnacki has also earned IWLCA All-Region and New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) All-Conference honors.
For her efforts throughout the 2019 regular season, Stone was honored as the NEWMAC Women's Lacrosse Co-Defensive Player of the Year along with Babson's Mairead Williams. This marked the first Women's Lacrosse Defensive Player of the Year honor for the Pride since Gabby Anderson collected the honor in 2017, as Springfield College has now had six student-athletes earn Player of the Year honors dating back to 2006. Stone, a recent graduate of Springfield College earning a Bachelor's degree in Nutritional Sciences, led the team in caused turnovers with 40, while also picking up 53 ground balls and six draw controls. Stone has also earned IWLCA All-Region and New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) All-Conference honors following her senior season.
Kane, a senior defender and recent graduate from Springfield College, was crucial on the draw for the maroon and white in 2019, collecting 110 draw controls, 33 ground balls and 16 caused turnovers, as she was also a crucial part of a defensive unit that held opponents to just 9.84 goals per contest. Kane, who also earned NEWMAC First Team All-Conference accolades following a tremendous senior season, allowed for the Pride to capture a NEWMAC title and make an appearance on the national stage for the third time in the last four seasons.
