2013 Women's Lacrosse All-Ivy Teams and Awards Announced

A total of eight Ivies were unanimously voted to the first team, including three from Penn and three from Princeton. For the Quakers, sophomores Lucy Ferguson (G Montclair, N.J.) and Meg Markham (D Manhasset, N.Y.) joined Tiger junior midfielder Sarah Lloyd (Severna Park, Md.) and senior defender Caroline Rehfuss (Latham, N.Y.) in receiving nothing but first-place votes. Columbia senior attack Kacie Johnson (Wilton, Conn.) and Ivory were the other two unanimous selections.

Ferguson was stellar between the pipes, as she led the League in saves (106) while ranking second in goals against average (9.02), save percentage (.451) and saves per game (7.57). Ferguson, a two-time Defensive Player of the Week, becomes the second-straight Quaker goalie to be unanimously voted to the first team, as Emily Leitner accomplished the feat last year.

Markham was a one-time Defensive Player of the Week recipient and she led her team with 26 groundballs, while finishing third on the squad in caused turnovers (11) and draw controls (26), setting career-highs in all three categories. She receives her first career All-Ivy accolade.

Lloyd also earns her first career All-Ivy honor. The junior led the Tigers with 44 draw controls and 24 groundballs, while also recording 12 caused turnovers. She finished second on the team in points (31) and third in assists (14) and set career-highs in draw controls, groundballs, points and assists. She also matched her personal-best with 17 goals, which she previously accomplished last season.

Rehfuss earns her second-straight All-Ivy award after being named Honorable Mention last season. In 2013, the senior defender finished with 15 groundballs, six draw controls and a team-high 17 caused turnovers. She also tallied an assist from her defensive position.

Johnson finished her career in style, leading the League in goals (52), goals per game (3.47), points (68) and points per game (4.53), while also recording 32 groundballs, 18 draw controls and 11 caused turnovers. Johnson earns her third-straight All-Ivy accolade, her second-consecutive first team honor and her first unanimous selection.

All eight Ivy League schools are represented on the first team.

Dartmouth saw two players named to the first team in senior attack Hana Bowers (Old Greenwich, Conn.) and senior midfielder Courtney Bennett (Darien, Conn.), as each received their first career postseason honor. Bowers led her team with 53 points on 40 goals and 13 assists, while also recording 40 draw controls, 17 groundballs and eight caused turnovers. Bennett, meanwhile, led the Big Green with 46 draw controls and 19 caused turnovers and finished third on the squad with 28 groundballs. She also tallied 19 points on 12 goals and seven assists.

Brown junior Bre Hudgins (Syracuse, N.Y.) is the first Bear to receive first team honors since Paris Waterman in 2011. Hudgins led her team in points (48), goals (36) and assists (12), while finishing second in draw controls (51). Hudgins takes home her second career All-Ivy award, as she was named to the second team in 2011.

Cornell sophomore Lindsay Toppe (Bedford, N.Y.) received her first career All-Ivy award and joined Ivory on the first team. Toppe led the Big Red in points (58) and goals (47), while also tallying 11 assists. She set career-highs in all three categories and twice was named Offensive Player of the Week.

Harvard senior Micaela Cyr (Lexington, Mass.) is no stranger to the All-Ivy teams, as she was named Honorable Mention as a freshman and second team last season. This year, Cyr led her team with 46 points on 31 goals and 15 assists, as well as 29 groundballs. She also posted 36 draw controls and eight caused turnovers.
