            PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Two Plymouth State University women’s lacrosse players received outstanding honors Thursday with the release of the 2006 Regional All-Star Teams by the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association.

            Panther senior midfielder Nicole Evans (Scituate, Mass.) and junior midfielder Kelsey MacDonald (Oak Bluffs, Mass.) were named Pilgrim Region Second Team All-Stars.  In addition, Evans was selected to play in the 2006 Division III North-South Senior All-Star game, a premier event that showcases collegiate seniors.  It is part of the STX Farewell Lacrosse Festival on Saturday, June 10, at Johns Hopkins University.

            The honors come after outstanding seasons by Evans and MacDonald and the Panthers as a team.  Evans was the Little East Conference Offensive Player of the Year, MacDonald was the LEC Defensive Player of the Year, and they led PSU to the Little East Conference regular season and tournament championships, a berth in the Division III NCAA Tournament, and a final overall record of 13-6.


            Evans (right) received her post-season honors after leading the team in scoring with 39 goals, 26 assists and 65 points, finishing second in the conference in assists, fourth in points and sixth in goals.  She also finished fourth on the team in ground balls (52).  Evans, who played only three years at PSU after transferring from the University of New Hampshire, is seventh on PSU’s career scoring list with 165 points (96 goals, 69 assists).


            MacDonald (left) earned top honors this spring after winning the LEC Offensive Player of the Year Award in 2005.  A 5’3” midfielder, she ranked 11th in NCAA Div. III in draw controls (4.19/gm) and 8th in NCAA Div. III in ground balls (5.38/gm).  She also ranks third on team in scoring with 37 goals, 11 assists and 48 points.  MacDonald, who was the LEC Offensive Player of the Week once this season and Defensive Player of the Week twice, was also named the Most Outstanding Player of the 2006 Little East Conference Tournament.
