Khadrice Rollins, Assistant Sports Editor


Northwestern had two players recognized as All-West/Midwest Regional Team performers by the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association.

Freshman attacker Selena Lasota and sophomore midfielder Sheila Nesselbush earned first and second team honors, respectively. The duo was also named to the inaugural All-Big Ten Team this season.

Lasota, the Big Ten Freshman of the Year, tallied a team-high 62 goals for the Wildcats this season to go along with her nine assists.

Nesselbush was second on the team with 60 draw controls won and was fourth on the team in goals with 21.

The two will lead NU as it goes on the road Sunday to take on Maryland in the NCAA Tournament. When the Cats took on the Terrapins earlier this season, Lasota had 3 goals and one assist and Nesselbush added a goal of her own in the 16-5 loss.
