Women’s Lacrosse Places Three on IWLCA Northeast Region Teams

GRAND LAKE, Colo. – Seniors Marisa Romeo, Marina Burke and Maeve McMahon have been selected to IWLCA All-Northeast Region teams, as announced by Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association Friday, May 12. Romeo was selected to the first team, while Burke and McMahon were named to the second team.

The trio is among the 128 student-athletes voted to all-region teams Friday, all of which are now eligible for inclusion on the IWLCA All-American teams, which will be announced on Wednesday, May 17. The IWLCA will honor the National All-Americans at the IWLCA All-American Banquet on Saturday June 3, 2017 at the Hunt Valley Inn in Hunt Valley, Maryland.

Romeo is making her fourth-straight appearance on an IWLCA all-region team and first on the first team. The senior from Syracuse, New York put the cap on a stellar career with a season for the record books. She became just the 10th player in program history with 50 goals in a season and her 75 points ranks sixth all-time in Crimson history. She finished her career with 229 points, becoming only the fourth player in program history to eclipse 200 for her career. She recorded a hat trick in 12 games this season and had seven points in three games.

Burke garners her first all-region nod after being selected to the All-Ivy League first team. The Westwood, Massachusetts native was one of the most aggressive defenders in the Ivy League this season. She led the Crimson with 28 caused turnovers and was second in ground balls with 31, figures that rank sixth and 13th in the Ivy League, respectively. In addition to posting career-highs in both of categories, she also had a new career-high with 16 draw controls and matched her scoring-best with five goals.

In the same year that McMahon earned her first All-Ivy selection, the Duxbury, Massachusetts native has collected her first all-region honor. McMahon was among the strongest players in the Ivy in draw controls this season, ranking third with 63. Additionally, had career-high marks with 26 goals, 34 points, 16 ground balls and nine caused turnovers.
