York, Pa. – Three Marymount University women’s lacrosse players earned All-Capital Athletic Conference honors, as announced by the league office on Thursday. Freshman Megan McGuirk was named the CAC Rookie of the Year while junior Stephanie Flood and freshman Molly Maher were tabbed second team All-Conference by the league’s coaches.
McGuirk becomes just the second Saints to earn women’s lacrosse Rookie of the Year honors in program history. She started all 15 games for the Blue and White, scoring 28 goals to go with 17 assists for 45 total points to rank 20th, 16th and 17th, respectively, in the CAC. McGuirk also added 11 ground balls and 13 draw controls.
Flood earns her second All-CAC nod after also collecting second team honors as a freshman in 2010. Scoring 15 goals and dishing out 13 assists for 25 points, she was a key player in the midfield for the Saints. Flood hauled in 35 draw controls, 16th most in the league, to go with 22 ground balls and 13 caused turnovers.
Maher proved to be one of the best defensive midfielders in the CAC during her rookie campaign. She was second in the league in both groundballs and caused turnovers, recording 57 and 36 respectively, while hauling in 19 draw controls. Maher was also a threat on the offensive end, scoring 13 goals to go with six assists for 19 total points.
Marymount went 5-10 on the season and made a return trip to the CAC Tournament after a year hiatus. The Saints graduate just three seniors and return 22 letterwinners for 2013 including Flood, Maher and McGuirk.
