Boston, Mass. (May 9) – For the 24th consecutive season the MIT women's lacrosse team secured multiple spots on the NEWMAC All-Conference Team as announced by the league on Tuesday. Juniors Emily Young (La Jolla, Calif.) and Katie Notarangelo (Foxboro, Mass.) were placed on the first and second teams, respectively, while senior Devin Williams (Washington, D.C.) was named to the All-Sportsmanship Team.
A three-time All-Conference selection at attack, Young is the NEWMAC leader and ranks seventh in the country in free-position percentage (.696). She also paces the conference in points (77), goals per game (3.75), and points per game (4.81) in addition to standing second in goals (60), draw controls (76), and draw controls per game (4.75).
The recipient of her first All-Conference nod, Notarangelo is 10th in the NEWMAC in draw controls (42) and as a midfielder she is fifth on the team in goals (23), points (29), groundballs (26), and caused turnovers (13).
Williams is MIT's first NEWMAC All-Sportsmanship Team honoree. The newly established award is intended to recognize one student-athlete from each team, in every sport, who best demonstrates the ideals of the NEWMAC and its Code of Conduct. The anchor of the Engineers' defense, Williams started every game for MIT during her four-year career and was named to the NEWMAC Academic All-Conference team three times.
