Lenaghan, Williams Garner First-Team Honors, while McGuire and Salvatore Pick Up Second-Team Accolades
BABSON PARK, Mass.—Babson College seniors Lexi Lenaghan (Hanover, Mass.) and Mairead Williams (Hingham, Mass.) and sophomores Juliana McGuire (Sparta, N.J.) and Georgia Salvatore (Westwood, Mass.) were all named to the Berkshire All-Region teams when the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) announced the first of its postseason award winners on Monday afternoon.
Lenaghan and Williams were both named to the all-region first team, while McGuire and Salvatore picked up second-team All-Berkshire honors. The Beavers' four awards are also the program's most since 2013.
The highest scoring player in single-season program history, Lenaghan was named to the All-Berkshire first team for the second year in a row. She set new school records for goals (86) and points (119) while also dishing out 32 assists in 19 starts for the Green and White. The Beavers' first New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Player of the Year since 2016, Lenaghan's 6.21 points per game are a single-season record, and her goal and point totals both rank 11th in Division III.
Although she played in just 38 games for the Beavers after transferring from Division I Hofstra University, Lenaghan is tied for fifth on the program's all-time list in assists (66), ranks sixth with 220 points and is 10th in school history with 154 goals.
The NEWMAC Defensive Player of the Year, Williams earned her first all-region honor after scooping up 24 ground balls and leading the team with 14 caused turnovers.
A three-year starter, she concluded her career with 78 ground balls and 45 caused turnovers while helping the Green and White led the conference in both goals against average and clearing percentage this spring.
An all-conference first-team honoree, Salvatore produced career-high totals of 57 goals, 30 assists and 87 points, which ranks fourth on the program's single-season list. The only Babson player to score in every game this spring, she finished with three or more goals in 13 of 19 contests, and ranked in the top five in the NEWMAC in goals, assists and points.
McGuire was recognized with all-region accolades for the first time in her career after setting new career highs in goals (26), ground balls (25) and draw controls (90). She totaled 29 points for the second consecutive season, and ranked second in the conference in draw controls on the way to earning All-NEWMAC first-team honors.
Babson, which went undefeated in league play for the second time in four seasons, captured its second consecutive NEWMAC regular season title and finished the year at 13-6 overall.
