Five Penn State Women’s Lacrosse Players Named To All-Big Ten Teams

Five Penn State women’s lacrosse players were named to All-Big Ten teams, the conference announced Wednesday morning.

Kristin O’Neill and Ellie Hollin were named to the league’s first team. O’Neill, a senior, scored a team-high 41 goals this season, including three game-winning goals and 29 free position goals. Hollin, a junior defender, has now earned first-team honors in two consecutive seasons.

Penn State also placed Kayla Abernathy, Sammy Dupcak, and Gretchen Gilmore on the second team. All three of them received the same honor last season. This year, Abernathy started in all 15 of the team’s games and netted 18 goals. Dupcak, a defender, is now a three-time All-Big Ten second-team selection, while Gilmore has 29 goals, second on the team to O’Neill.

Each team in the conference also has a sportsmanship honoree, and Haley Urgo, a fifth-year defender, was named to this team for Penn State. Urgo caused 11 turnovers this season.

The blue and white return to action at noon on Saturday, April 27, at Panzer Stadium to open the Big Ten Tournament against Ohio State in the team’s “Wear White” game.
