ORCHARD PARK, NY – The Franciscan women's lacrosse team earned four All-Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference honorees and senior midfield Mary Krolicki was named the AMCC Offensive Player of the Year, as announced by the league office.
Krolicki, a four-year standout, wrapped up her career with the Lady Barons with an impressive final season with her first Offensive Player of the Year honor and second-straight All-AMCC first team nod. Krolicki led the team and was second in the conference with 46 goals this season and 50 points to end her career with 170. The senior won a conference-best 69 draw controls and picked up 38 ground balls while causing 18 turnovers this year. Krolicki was 10-for-15 in free position shots and had an 87.5 shot on goal percentage. The Chantilly, VA native set the single-game draw control record with 12 against Waynesburg this past year. Krolicki has played in 54 games at Franciscan and has scored in 52 of them, including a 47-game point scoring streak.
Joining Krolicki on the first team at midfield was junior Treise McCarthy. McCarthy finished the season with 21 points behind 17 goals and four assists. McCarthy picked up 16 ground balls and caused six turnovers and was a pivotal player in the Lady Baron transition game, playing both offensive and defensive midfield. McCarthy had a four-goal and on assist performance against Waynesburg.
Earning her second-straight All-AMCC first team honor was junior Elizabeth Jordan on defense. Jordan had a solid junior season for the Lady Barons in which she won 25 draw controls while picking up 38 ground balls and caused 34 turnovers, including a single-game record eight against Hilbert. Jordan was second in the conference in caused turnovers and scored her first career offensive point with an assist in transition against St. Vincent. Jordan is the career record holder of caused turnovers as a junior and she anchored the second-best defense in the AMCC. She was named AMCC Defensive Player of the Week once.
Wrapping up the all-conference honors with her all-conference honor was junior Brittany Bain as the first-team goalie. Bain completed the best season for a Lady Baron goalie in program history. She had 162 saves and a 52.4 save percentage, both are single-season records while she became the all-time saves leader at Franciscan early in the season and now has 306 for her career. Bain is currently 17th in the nation in saves per game (12.46) and was named IWLS (Independent Women's Lacrosse Schools) Defensive Player of the Week three times. Bain was named the AMCC Defensive Player of the Week once and led the conference in saves, save percentage, and was second in GAA (11.31) while playing all 780 minutes for the Lady Barons.
Franciscan wraps up its sixth season as a program with a 7-6 overall record and a 2-1 slate in the AMCC. The Lady Barons will begin competition as an affiliate member of the Presidents' Athletic Conference in the fall.
