Maggie Hanzsche (Berwyn, Pa. / Conestoga) made the All-Region Team for the first time in her career after earning All-CC honors for the first time earlier this month. A sophomore defender, she has started in all 21 games this year and collected 34 ground balls with 23 caused turnovers.
Danielle Harrington (Massapequa, N.Y. / Plainedge) picked up her first All-Region accoladed after landing on the All-CC First team.
