CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Four members of the Harvard women’s lacrosse team have been tabbed to the All-Ivy League team, the conference office announced Wednesday. 

Midfielder Audrey Todd was picked on the All-Ivy first team, while attacker Marisa Romeo was named to the second team. Goalie Kelly Weis and defender Isabella Wager earned honorable mention spots. 

Todd, a sophomore from Baltimore, Md., makes her second straight appearance on the All-Ivy team. Todd, who paces the Crimson with 33 draw controls, ranks second on the team with 26 goals, 33 points and 29 ground balls. Todd scored multiple goals in eight straight games from March 22 through April 19, recording five hat tricks in that span and posted a career-high six points in the win over Boston University April 16. 

A native of Syracuse, N.Y., Romeo, a freshman, garnered a nod to the All-Ancient Eight team after leading the league and ranking eighth in the country in goals with 46. She also stands fourth in the league with 53 points and is tied for first in the conference with four game-winning goals. Romeo, who has scored at least one point in every game this spring, has nine hat tricks and has tallied at least four goals in a game seven times. She netted a career-best six goals in the victory over Vanderbilt April 2. 

Weis, who hails from Garden City, N.Y., was also an honorable mention choice in 2012. She stands second in the league and 20th in the nation with a .467 save percentage and ranks fifth in the conference with a 9.20 goals-against mark. Weis made a career-high 13 saves in a win over Marquette March 15 and won all nine games for Harvard this spring. 

Wager started all 14 games and was a leader of Harvard’s defensive unit. The native of Saratoga Springs, N.Y., caused five turnovers and collected 10 ground balls on the year. 

The Crimson, which concluded the regular season 9-6 overall and 4-3 in the Ancient Eight, will face No. 15 Penn in the Ivy League tournament semifinal Friday, May 2 at 4 p.m. The winner of that game will face either No. 16 Princeton or Cornell in the final Sunday, May 4 at noon. The tournament will be held in Princeton, N.J.
