Treanor, Douty and Stukenberg Earn Top Honors as the ECAC Unveils 2014 Division I Women’s Lacrosse All-Stars

CENTERVILLE, Mass. – The Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) announced its 2014 Division I Women’s Lacrosse All-Star teams today, and the list was headlined by a trio of Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) standouts. Syracuse University sophomore Kayla Treanor (Niskayuna, N.Y.) was selected as the Offensive Player of the Year, and University of Maryland teammates, junior Megan Douty (Fair Haven, N.J.) and freshman Zoe Stukenberg (Howard County, Md.), were tabbed as the Defensive Player of the Year and Rookie of the Year, respectively. The voting for the 2014 ECAC Division I Women’s Lacrosse All-Star teams and major award winners was completed by the head coaches within the ECAC Division I Women’s Lacrosse membership. 

Treanor led the nation in scoring this season with 117 points, netting 79 goals and handing out 38 assists. She topped the ACC in points (4.88) and goals (3.29) per game, helping lead Syracuse to a share of the conference title in its first season as a league member. In the 2014 NCAA Division I Women’s Lacrosse Tournament, Treanor notched 15 points (9g, 6a) in four games, as the Orange advanced to the national championship game for the second time in three seasons. For her efforts, she was also named an Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) First Team All America and the ACC Offensive Player of the Year.

Douty earned the 2014 ECAC Division I Women’s Lacrosse Defensive Player of the Year honor after anchoring the Terrapins to their 12th national championship. She raked in 36 ground balls and caused 19 turnovers for Maryland, which included nine ground balls and four caused turnovers in NCAA tournament wins over the University of Pennsylvania, Duke University, Northwestern University and Syracuse University. As a team the Terrapins boasted the nation’s ninth-best scoring defense, allowing opponents to score an average of just 7.96 goals per game. Douty was also named an IWLCA First Team All America, a Tewaaraton Award finalist and the ACC Defensive Player of the Year. 

Stukenberg, the 2014 ECAC Division I Women’s Lacrosse Rookie of the Year, appeared in all 24 games for Maryland this season. She registered 47 points in her first season in a Terrapins’ uniform, scoring 35 goals and assisting on 12 others, while also picking up 21 ground balls and securing 23 draw controls. In Maryland’s march to the national title, Stukenberg tallied three goals, added a trio of assists, scooped up six ground balls and caused three turnovers. She was also selected as the 2014 ACC Co-Freshman of the Year.
