Penn State Women’s Lacrosse Senior Steph Lazo Named Big Ten Attacker Of The Year

Penn State senior Steph Lazo was named the Big Ten’s Attacker of the Year in an official announcement made by the conference on Monday.

The Stevensville, MD, native scored 82 points this season, including 39 goals. Her 82 points and 43 assists both led Penn State and ranked 16th and 20th in the nation, respectively. Additionally, her 39 goals ranked third among the Nittany Lions, only behind junior Katie O’Donnell (54) and sophomore Madison Carter (60).

Lazo’s 2016-17 season was her best as a Nittany Lion, topping her previous career high of 71 points, which she reached last season with 34 goals and 37 assists as a junior.

The team begins its chase for a national title on Sunday, May 14, at the Penn State Lacrosse Field when the fourth-seeded Nittany Lions face the winner of Friday’s game between James Madison and Louisville.

Mikey Mandarino

In the most upsetting turn of events, Mikey graduated from Penn State with a digital & print journalism degree in the spring of 2020. He covered Penn State football and served as an editor for Onward State from 2018 until his graduation. Mikey is from Bedminster, New Jersey, so naturally, he spends lots of time yelling about all the best things his home state has to offer. Mikey also loves to play golf, but he sucks at it because golf is really hard.
