PLYMOUTH, N.H. - Four members of the Plymouth State University women's lacrosse team, two juniors and two freshmen, were honored Tuesday with selection to the Little East Conference All-Star for the 2009 season, as voted by the league's head coaches.
Three of the Panther selections were All-LEC First Team honorees -- junior attack Taylor Cambal (West Yarmouth, Mass./Tabor Academy), junior midfielder Kalie Judd (Peabody, Mass./Veterans Memorial) and freshman defender Nicole Grover (Yarmouth, Maine/Yarmouth), and freshman attack Brianna Davis (Framingham, Mass./Framingham) was a Second Team choice. Judd earned First Team All-Conference honors for the second year in a row while the others are first-time picks.
These Panthers were the only four to reach double figures in goal-scoring and accounted for 133 of PSU's 162 goals. They helped PSU to a 6-9 overall record, a five-game improvement over last year and a jump of four spots to third place in the LEC standings.
Cambal, near right, (35 goals-11 assists-46 points) was second on the team in goals and the leader in assists and points this season, and ranked in the top three in the LEC in all three offensive categories despite missing three games due to injury. Davis, far right, (38-6-44) topped the squad and ranked fifth in the conference in goals and was second on the team in points.
Judd (32-7-39) and Grover (28-7-35) were also strong offensive contributors, while playing solid defense all over the field. Judd, far left, was second in the conference in draw controls with 55, and also led the team and ranked among the LEC leaders in ground balls (51) and caused turnovers (25). Grover, near left, contributed 25 ground balls and 29 draw controls, both second-best on the team.
Two of the Panthers are two-sport athletes at Plymouth State; Judd is the starting point guard on the PSU women's basketball team and Davis was one of the leading scorers on the women's ice hockey team.
