Three Earn All-America Honors; Moriarty Attacker of the Year

Complete All-America Team

LANCASTER, Pa. – Three members of the Franklin & Marshall women's lacrosse team were named to the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWCLA) All-America Team announced Wednesday. Paige Moriarty was named to the first team, Maggie Hanzsche earned a spot on the second team, and Danielle Harrington landed on the third team. The honors are the first for Hanzsche and Harrington while Moriarty earns All-America honors for the third time and was named Attacker of the Year. 

The honors bring F&M's total to 76 All-America honors in program history, and Moriarty picks up her second Attacker of the Year honor, joining Jen Pritchard '09 as two-time honorees. 

Paige Moriarty (Glen Ridge, N.J. / Glen Ridge) leaves F&M one of the most decorated players in program history. She earned First Team All-America honors for the third straight year -- becoming just the sixth Diplomats to earn three All-American honors -- and Attacker of the Year for the second time. Earlier this season, Moriarty picked up her fourth All-Region Team honor and became just the third Diplomat to receive Centennial Conference Offensive Player of the Year honors, and the third overall to win the award twice, after also earning it in 2016. 

The senior attacker was a unanimous CC First Team selection and was the 20th player in CC history to earn First Team accolades three times. She led the Conference in points (97) and goals (55) while sitting third in assists (42). She scored multiple points in 20 games, including 11 with four or more points.  

Moriarty reset the F&M and Centennial career points record earlier this season and finished with 393 career points. She also reset the school's assist record with 163 assists, and her 230 career goals are second in program history.

Maggie Hanzsche (Berwyn, Pa. / Conestoga) also 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 started in all 23 games this year and collected 36 ground balls with 24 caused turnovers.  

Danielle Harrington (Massapequa, N.Y. / Plainedge) adds to her impressive senior season after she picked up her first All-Region accolade after landing on the All-CC First Team. She led the Conference with 205 saves and had a 53.7 save percentage in net. The senior anchored the second-best defense in the CC with an 8.18 goals-against average and had double-digit saves in nine games and five or more saves in 18 contests, including a career-high 19 against Gettysburg on April 4.  

F&M wrapped up the season with an 18-5 record after advancing to the NCAA for the sixth straight season. The Diplomats have made two Sweet 16s, two Elite Eights and two Final Fours in those appearances.
