Romeo, who ranks 28th nationally with 2.85 goals per game, has tallied 37 goals and amassed 48 points this season. She has scored a goal in 12 of the 13 games in which she has appeared, including a season-high six at Boston College April 7.

Todd, a captain and midfielder from Baltimore, Maryland, was also named to the All-Ivy first team last year and to the second team in 2013. She has netted 28 goals and added eight assists for 36 points, while also winning 23 draw controls and picking up 16 ground balls in 2015. Todd has started all 15 games.

A freshman from Manhasset, New York, Glynn, a two-time Ivy Co-Offensive Player of the Week (April 6, April 27), ranks second on the Crimson with 41 points on 24 goals and a team-high 17 assists. Glynn, who has played in all 15 games, has collected 24 ground balls and paces the team with 18 caused turnovers.
