Outstanding Season Continues for UR Women's Lacrosse with Four All-Region Selections
It was recently announced by the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) that the University of Redlands women's lacrosse team garnered four All-Region selections for the second-most in program history. Senior midfielder Megan Prickett (Poway, CA) headlined the group by landing on the First Team, while sophomore midfielders Jacky Craycraft (Trabuco Canyon, CA) and KK McCaslin (Portland, OR) as well as junior defender Katie Colasurdo (Eugene, OR) earned Second-Team recognition.
Prickett capped off her Bulldog career with a fantastic senior season with her first-ever All-Region selection. An integral part of the Bulldogs' success, Prickett served as a versatile catalyst in the midfield with impressive numbers. She led the team with 64 points while ranking second in assists with 19 and third in goals with 45. Prickett also provided a solid effort with 28 ground balls and 32 draw controls. Defensively, she showed her strength by leading the team in caused turnovers with 15.
Craycraft garnered her inaugural All-Region accolade after a stellar sophomore campaign with the Maroon and Gray. One of her biggest assets was leading the team with 79 draw controls to initiate possession. Highlighted by 17 free-position goals, she also ranked second among the Bulldogs with 46 total goals and 58 points. In addition, she picked up 28 ground balls.
McCaslin finished out her second year with Redlands by earning her first All-Region honor. The team-leader in goals scored, she found the back of the net 47 times while dishing out four assists to give her a total of 51 points. She recorded the highest shot percentage of all midfielders or attack players with a .644 mark. Quick to establish possession for the Bulldogs, McCaslin notched 41 draw controls while nabbing 20 ground balls.
Colasurdo, the defensive leader on the field, earned her first-ever All-Region accolade with this year's Second-Team selection. Like Craycraft, she started in every game for the Maroon and Gray en route to helping the team make its run to the Second Round of the NCAA Championships. Colasurdo ranked second on the team in ground balls with 34 to go along with 13 draw controls and 13 caused turnovers. As the leader of the stingy Bulldog defense, she contributed to an impressive goals-against-average of 9.72 goals.
While earning its first-ever Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) championship, the 2012 Redlands women's lacrosse team racked up the best record in its 14-year history at 16-2.
