FOREST, Va.- Six members of the Bridgewater College women's lacrosse team were recognized with the release of the 2018 All-ODAC squad.

Four players made the second team- juniors Kristen Stark and Sarah Yashinskie, senior defender Kayla O'Sullivan, and freshman goalie Mikaela Brooks.

Stark is the ODAC's second-leading scorer (71 points) heading into the NCAA tournament, and is tied for second in assists (24). She has also added 47 goals, 29 ground balls, 27 draw controls and 19 caused turnovers.

Yashinskie filled the stat sheet in the midfield with 38 goals, 9 assists, 37 ground balls, 62 draw controls and 18 caused turnovers.

O'Sullivan was a second team All-Conference selection for the third consecutive season. She ranks second in the ODAC in caused turnovers (40) and draw controls (82), fourth in ground balls (48), and set a new school record with 154 career draw controls.

Brooks led the ODAC in save percentage (52.2) and ranked third in GAA (9.36) as a rookie. She totaled 133 saves, an 8-4 record, and three shutouts.

The third team included junior attack Anna O'Hara and sophomore defender Mackenzie Parcell.

Parcell's 32 caused turnovers rank fourth in the conference, and her 36 ground balls are also in the top-10.

O'Hara (a third team selection for the third straight year) ranks second in the conference with 50 goals, while adding 10 assists, 34 ground balls and 20 caused turnovers. Along with Stark and Yashinskie, the Eagles' junior trio all hit 100 career points this season- the first Bridgewater lacrosse class to have three different 100-point scorers.

For the first time in league history, the league moved to pair of top player awards to lead its annual All-ODAC Women's Lacrosse awards. Washington and Lee attacker Jess Castelo is the first ODAC Offensive Player of the Year, while Roanoke defender Emma Boris is the first ODAC Defensive Player of the Year.

Generals mentor Brooke O'Brien took home ODAC Coach of the Year honors from her peers, while Shenandoah midfielder Alyson Bittinger earned ODAC Rookie of the Year laurels.
