Northwestern experienced an ignominious end to its season Saturday, suffering a 17-5 blowout at the hands of postseason rival Maryland in the quarterfinal round of the NCAA Tournament, but freshman Selena Lasota continues to collect personal accolades.

Lasota was named a Second-Team All-American by the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association on Tuesday, capping an impressive season for the precocious Wildcat.

The honor extends her list of postseason awards, which includes being named to the IWLCA All-West Region first team, earning Big Ten Freshman of the Year, being unanimously selected to the All-Big Ten team and receiving a nomination for the Tewaaraton Award, which is given each season to the nation’s best player.

Lasota scored at least once in each of NU’s 21 contests this season and led the Cats with 69 goals, setting a freshman single-season record. Her scoring total ranks fifth nationally.

She is the 47th player in program history to be named an IWLCA All-American.
