Madison Cyr And Jenna Mosketti Named To NCAA Women’s Lacrosse All-Championship Team

Madison Cyr and Jenna Mosketti donned the blue and white for the final time as collegiate lacrosse players on the sport’s grandest stage this past weekend at the Final Four in Chester, Pa. Despite seeing their dream season end a game short of the NCAA National Championship as the Nittany Lions fell to the eventual champs North Carolina 12-11, both Cyr and Mosketti put a bow on their careers with a big honor Sunday. The two were named to the NCAA All-Championship team.

A contingency from Maryland and North Carolina and a pair from Syracuse joined the Penn Staters. Taylor Cummings, Ali Mercer, and Megan Whittle earned the distinction for the Terrapins, while Marie McCool, Carly Reed, Megan Ward, and the tournament’s Most Outstanding Player Aly Messinger represented the national champion Tar Heels. Kayla Treanor and Nicole Levy rounded things out for the Orange.

Cyr, a relentless midfielder from Westminster, Md., eclipsed the 200-career points mark on Friday against the Tar Heels, joining her older sister Mackenzie as the 12th Nittany Lion to accomplish the feat. Incredibly, each tallied exactly 202 points during their time in Happy Valley. The younger Cyr’s two goals and one assist helped Penn State battle all the way back and nearly tie things up before time expired in the semifinals on Friday.

Mosketti, who hails from Fallston, Md., finished 2016 with 33 goals and six assists — good for fifth on the team — but arguably none were bigger than the attacker’s hat trick in the semifinals at Talen Energy Stadium. Both were All-Big Ten selections this spring, with Cyr picking up a unanimous nod for Missy Doherty’s program.

Congratulations on a pair of tremendous careers!
