Six Sea Gulls earn IWLCA All-Region honors

GRAND LAKE, Colo. – The Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association announced its 2019 All-Region teams on Monday, and the No. 7 Salisbury University women's lacrosse team had two players named to the first team and four to the second team in the Chesapeake Region.

Senior Martha Hutzell and sophomore Alexis Strobel were named to the first team, while seniors Gabby Mongno and Lindsey Wagner and juniors Kendall Bannan and Skye Graham earned second-team honors.

Hutzell makes her second-straight all-region team after being named to the first team in 2018, as well. The defender has a team-high 77 draw controls this season to go along with 17 caused turnovers and 40 groundballs, which is good for second on the team.

Strobel earns the first all-region honor of her career as she is currently second in Division III with 67 assists on the season. She leads the team with 87 points as she has added 20 goals on just 29 shots.

Mongno's second-team selection marks the first all-region honor of her career. She is second on the team with 47 goals and third with 54 points, adding seven assists on the year. The senior attacker has also scooped up 12 groundballs, 13 draw controls, and caused eight turnovers.

For Wagner, this marks the first all-region honor of her career. The senior attacker is second on the team with 67 points, tallying 29 goals and 38 assists. She has added 13 groundballs on the season.

Bannan also makes the first all-region team of her career after causing 32 turnovers and coming up with 35 groundballs, both of which rank her in the top four on the team.

In her first full season in net, Graham earns the first all-region honor of her career. She has started all 22 games, posting a 19-3 record. The goalkeeper has a 48.1 save percentage and 8.28 goals-against average, making 142 saves in over 1,100 minutes so far this season.

The IWLCA has honored 256 student-athletes in Division III with a selection to one of the All-Region teams for 2019. These student-athletes are now eligible to be named to a national IWLCA All-American team. The IWLCA will celebrate the 2019 All-Americans during Divisional All-American Specials, which will be aired on Lax Sports Network in mid June. 

Salisbury is back in action on Saturday, May 25 in the national semifinals at Randolph-Macon College, where it will take on No. 4 Tufts University at 2:30 p.m.
