PHILADELPHIA – The University of Pennsylvania had two women’s lacrosse players named ECAC All-Stars today, with Meg Markham earning first-team ECAC All-Star honors and Lucy Ferguson being named to the second team.
Meg Markham repeats as a first-team selection on defense after a 2015 season where she was named a first-team All-American and Ivy League Defender of the Year for the second year in a row. Markham led all Ivy League players with 46 caused turnovers and her 2.42 CTs-per-game ranked fifth among all Division I players. A three-time first-team All-Ivy selection, Markham earned three All-Region selections during her career.
Lucy Ferguson was named second-team ECAC All-Star, her first career recognition by the ECAC. A second-team All-American this year, Ferguson was named first-team All-Ivy for the third year in a row. Ferguson led all Ivy goalkeepers with a 7.71 goals-against average – good for 10th among all Division I keepers. A three-time All-Region selection, Ferguson was second this season in the Ivy League with a .473 save percentage.
Both Markham and Ferguson were among the 25 Tewaaraton Award nominees this season as college lacrosse’s top player.
Penn’s two ECAC All-Star selections were the most by any Ivy League school and tied for fourth among all eligible programs.
