Senior attacker Kaleigh Craig and sophomore midfielder Selena Lasota were named to the All-Big Ten Team on Wednesday morning. Craig was a unanimous selection by the conference after the senior averaged 3 goals per conference game — tied for fourth in the Big Ten — and nearly two ground balls per conference game.

The Northwestern attacker was also one of six players honored with the Big Ten Sportsmanship Award. The award is given to athletes for a combination of their ethical behavior, academic standing and outstanding citizenship off of the lacrosse field.

Meanwhile, Lasota led the Big Ten in scoring in conference games with 18 goals and received an at-large selection from the conference. The sophomore is tied with Craig for the most goals on the team, scoring 41 this season. She also tallied 42 draw controls.

The Wildcats return to action Thursday, when they take on Michigan in the first round of the Big Ten Tournament.
