Women's lacrosse team has five on All-Region squad

WATERVILLE, Maine — Jackie Brokaw ’18 (Darien, Conn.), Emma Marjollet ’16 (Hingham, Mass.), Emilie Klein ’17 (North Andover, Mass.), Georgia Lubrano ’17 (Hanover, N.H.), Lexie Perticone ’17 (Vero Beach, Fla.), and Kendall Smith ’18 (Bloomfield, N.J.) all made the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) Division III All-Region Team on Friday.

Brokaw and Marjollet were both named to the Pilgrim Region First Team. Klein, Lubrano, Perticone, and Smith were on the second team. The IWLCA separates the New England schools into two groups because of the amount of colleges playing in the region.

Brokaw was selected to the New England Small College Athletic Conference First Team last week, while Marjollet was on the second team.

Brokaw was one of only three sophomores to make the first team. She had 25 ground balls, 23 caused turnovers, and three draw controls this season. Brokaw, with terrific ability on clears as a defender, has 54 career ground balls, 39 caused turnovers, and 11 draw controls. The NESCAC Rookie of the Year in 2015, Brokaw was on the IWLCA All-Region Second Team as a first-year.

Marjollet, a co-captain and defender, also was strong on clears and had one goal, 26 ground balls, 12 caused turnovers, and five draw controls. She had two goals, one assist, 59 ground balls, 35 caused turnovers, and 32 draw controls in her career. Marjollet also was on the all-region team as a sophomore.

Klein, a midfielder, was tied with Brokaw for the team lead in caused turnovers (23) and added 20 ground balls and 17 draw controls. She also contributed 10 goals and two assists for 12 points. Klein has career totals of 21 goals, seven assists, 62 ground balls, 62 draw controls, and 52 caused turnovers.

Lubrano was part of a defense that ranked fifth in the NESCAC in goals allowed per game (6.94). She started for the first time and had a breakout season with 14 ground balls, 13 caused turnovers, and three draw controls. Lubrano has 18 career caused turnovers.

Perticone was tied for the team lead in scoring with 20 goals, a team-best 17 assists, a team-high 58.8 shot percentage, and 18 ground balls. She is tied for seventh in the NESCAC in total assists. Perticone has 32 goals, 33 assists, and 29 ground balls heading into the 2017 season.

Smith was tied with Perticone for the team lead in scoring with 21 goals and 16 assists for 37 points. She was second in shot percentage (55.3) and had 17 ground balls. In her two seasons, Smith has a 61.2 shot percentage, 41 goals, 26 assists, and 25 ground balls.
