    Athens, Ohio - Ohio goalkeeper Jen Cassidy and midfielder Lindsey Hart have been selected to the first-ever American Lacrosse Conference all-conference team, the league office announced today. The pair is among 12 players honored in voting by the league's coaches.

    Cassidy was the Bobcats' starter in 14 of the team's 15 games. She had a 10.61 goals against average this season and her .567 save percentage ranked 11th nationally.

    Hart set a new school record for goals with 58 and tied the standard with 75 points. Those per-game averages of 3.87 and 5.00, respectively, led the conference and were second and fifth nationally. Her 17 assists were the third-most ever recorded by a Bobcat.

    Ohio State led the way with three players on the team, including Player-of-the-Year Megan Mirick and Rookie-of-the-Year Regina Oliver. Buckeye Tracey Bounds was also a selection. Johns Hopkins also had three players selected in Jamie Larrimore, Heidi Pearce and Lacey Hentz, while Penn State added a pair in Colleen O'Hara and Ali DeCecco.

    League champion Vanderbilt and Northwestern, who restarted its program following a 10-year hiatus, each had one player selected. Representing the Commodores was Megan Lewis, while Kate Darmody was the lone Wildcat honored.

    Vanderbilt mentor Cathy Swezey, who led the Commodores to an undefeated regular season in the conference and the school's first berth in the NCAA Division I women's lacrosse championships, was tapped as the league's Coach of the Year. She saw the Commodores to a 10-5 record and a final ranking of #10 in the IWLCA poll. The Commodores finished the regular season 6-0 in the ALC after being picked to finish third in the preseason poll.
