2013 All-NCAC Women's Lacrosse Team Announced

2013 All-NCAC Women's Lacrosse Team

Kenyon senior attack Leah Sack (Wynnewood, PA/Lower Merion) and Wittenberg senior defender Katie Warner (Delaware, OH/Olentangy) have been named Offensive and Defensive Players of the Year, respectively, to highlight the 2013 All-North Coast Athletic Conference women's lacrosse selections.

Sack {left} led the Ladies to their first-ever NCAC Championship this season setting new conference records along the way including assists in a season (74), and a career (173), while also tying the record for assists in a single game (9). Along with her 74 assists, Sack added 17 to goals for a 6.07 points-per-game average, good for second in the NCAC and was named the NCAC's Player of the Week on April 22nd. Making her third-straight first-team selection, Sack is a four-time All-NCAC honoree, as she also earned second-team recognition in 2010.

Warner {right} is the leader of Wittenberg's defensive unit that limited its opponents to just 8.61 goals-per-game, second best in the NCAC in 2013. She has also scored three goals from the backline to go along with a team-leading 29 caused turnovers and 64 ground balls for a squad that averaged a league best 27.19 per game. Warner, who makes her first-career appearance as a member of the first team, earned second-team honors in 2012.

Like Sack, Wooster seniors Clare Nelson-Johnson (Wilmette, IL/Loyola Academy) and Shawna Ferris (Boxboroughough, MA/Acton-Boxborough) are four-time All-NCAC honorees; Nelson-Johnson is making her third-straight first-team selection in 2013, while Ferris earns her second first-team recognition after also being named to the first-team in 2011. Wittenberg junior Francine Murzynski (Mentor, OH/Lake Catholic) joins Sack and Nelson-Johnson as a repeat first-team selection.

Kenyon freshman midfielder Jane Symmes (Concord, NH/Concord) {left} was voted the North Coast's Newcomer of the Year. Symmes, who also garnered first-team All-NCAC honors, netted 43 goals and dished out 10 assists to average 3.53 points-per-game in her freshman campaign.

Kenyon's Meredith Buzzi {right} earns Coach of the Year recognition for the third time (2009, '10) in her career. Buzzi guided the Ladies to their first NCAC Championship and will lead Kenyon into its second NCAA appearance with a record of 13-2. In six years at the helm of the Kenyon women's lacrosse program, Buzzi has complied an overall record of 65-29 (.691).
