Tingley selected to All-Pilgrim Region Second Team
PLYMOUTH, N.H. – The top point-scorer for the Plymouth State University women's lacrosse team was recognized with regional honors as the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) announced its Division III All-Region teams on Thursday afternoon.
Senior Megan Tingley (Natick, Mass.) was named to the All-Pilgrim Region Second Team for the second straight year following another standout campaign. The three-time All-Little East Conference (LEC) First Team selection helped guide the Panthers to a second straight LEC tournament championship and appearance in the NCAA Division III tournament. She was the only representative from the LEC selected for regional honors.
A four-year starter, Tingley has etched her name among the all-time greats in program history. She led the team in points for the third consecutive year, becoming just the second player in program history to eclipse the 100-point plateau in a season after finishing the 2018 season with 57 goals and 44 assists. The 44 helpers matched the program record in a season, while the 57 tallies were the eighth-most in a year all-time.
Tingley wrapped up her career in the top ten in a number of categories. She owns the school record with 151 assists and is second all-time with 298 career points. Her 147 goals are the eighth-most in program history. She also finished fifth all-time with 183 draw controls and seventh with 89 caused turnovers.
She put together a monster performance in PSU's 19-8 win over Eastern Connecticut State in the LEC title game, leading the team to its record seventh LEC crown. She finished with three goals and a school-record eight assists, tying the program mark with 11 points on the afternoon to secure the tournament's Most Outstanding Player award.
Plymouth State, under the direction of second-year head coach Sandy Bridgeman, finished the season with a 14-4 mark. The Panthers went undefeated in conference play and put together an 11-game winning streak before falling to #17 SUNY Cortland in the first round of the NCAA tournament.
