Crew, Stacom earn first-team All-Atlantic East honors to lead Saints' four selections

LANCASTER, Pa. - The Marymount University women's lacrosse team had four student-athletes named to the first-ever All-Atlantic East Conference teams, with seniors Jessica Crew and Bridgette Stacom earning first-team honors to lead the way, the league announced on Tuesday.

Crew was the Saints' offensive leader in 2019, currently sitting first on the team with 83 goals and 92 points, which rank second and third in the conference, respectively. With her output this year, Crew set the program single-season goal record and the third-best single-season point total. Her nine assists are good for fourth on the team. 

She also finished second on the team with 52 draw controls.

Stacom earned her first-team selection after a season during which she was all over the field for the Saints and rarely came off of the field. She was the team leader with 112 draw controls, ranking third in the Atlantic East, and 27 caused turnovers; she was second on the team with 40 ground balls. On the offensive end, she finished second on the team with 64 points and 49 goals, while ranking third with 15 assists.

In the conference, Stacom ranked ninth in goals and tied for ninth in points.

Senior Holly Reik and sophomore Caroline Wolford were named second-team all-conference selections, as two of the team's defensive leaders.

Reik has started all 19 games in the goal so far this season for the Saints, making 196 saves to lead the team and rank second in the league. She moved into second all-time in program history with 710 career saves. She has played over 942 minutes in the cage and garners an 11.52 goals-against average, which is also second in the Atlantic East. 

Wolford spent the season covering the opponents' top offensive threats, finishing with 15 ground balls and nine caused turnovers. She helped the second-ranked defense in the conference hold opponents to only 11.26 goals per game.

The Saints will continue their season on Wednesday, May 8 in the first round of the Eastern College Athletic Conference championship tournament, playing host to Pfeiffer University at Long Bridge Park; the opening draw is set for 4 p.m.
