BRUNSWICK, Maine - Six members of the Bowdoin College women's lacrosse team have been honored in All-Region awards announced by the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association.

Four players garnered First Team All-Pilgrim Region selections; Emma Beecher (Morristown, N.J.), Natalie Moore (Rye, N.Y.), Lindsay Picard (New York, N.Y.) and Taylor Wilson (Chevy Chase, Md.). Sarah Freeman (Gloucester, Mass.) and Megan O'Connor (Concord, Mass.) were named as Second Team choices.

Beecher, Wilson, Picard and O'Connor spearheaded the Bowdoin offense this season as all four players reached the 40-point plateau this season. Picard owns a team-high 57 points, 44 goals and 64 draw controls this spring while Beecher notched a team-best 19 assists and 34 goals. Wilson was all over the field for Bowdoin, scoring 26 goals, dishing 14 assists, winning 47 draws, scooping 32 ground balls and causing 15 turnovers. O'Connor was tied for second on the squad with 34 goals this spring.

Defensively, Moore and Freeman back-lined a Polar Bear defensive unit that permitted just 8.01 goals per game this spring. Freeman caused a team-best 21 turnovers while collecting 25 ground balls. Moore caused 16 turnovers and grabbed 18 ground balls for the Polar Bears.

Bowdoin finished as the NESCAC runner-up this spring and owns a 16-3 record heading into this weekend's NCAA Third Round against TCNJ at Trinity College.
