The College of New Jersey women’s lacrosse team had a very successful season.
As they wait their NCAA first round opponent tomorrow night, several Lions were able to receive Conference honors. The Lions, who swept through New Jersey Athletic Conference action, had six members selected by Commissioner Terry Small.
Four of the players were named All-NJAC First-Team. And the two other players were named honorable mention All-NJAC.
Plus, those were not the only awards that the Lions took home today. Jillian Nealon was named the Conference’s 2013 Co-Attack Player of the Year. Lauren Pigott was named Midfielder of the Year.
Nealon scored 16 goals in conference games and had 27 points in five games. Pigott added 15 goals in conference play, plus she also had 21 draw controls in the five games.
Nealon and Pigott were named first-team All-NJAC. Pigott has been named all-conference for three straight years since she arrived on the Ewing campus, while it is the first time that Nealon was named all-conference.
Plus, they are joined by Jen Garavente, who also made all-conference, for the first time in her career. Nicole Pineda also made first-team All-NJAC.
Alex Spark, who missed the last three games with a torn ACL, was named honorable mention. Spark went down with this injury mid-way through the Rutgers-Camden game. Before her injury, she had eight goals and seven assists within the conference.
Also joining Spark on honorable mention is goalie Kelsey Zinck. She had a 4.60 goals against average, a .587 save percentage, and 5 wins in conference play.
