NORFOLK, VA -- Three members of the Old Dominion University women's lacrosse team, midfielder Suzanne Wosczyna (Phoenixville, PA), attacker Janine Rodriguez (Davidsonville, MD), and defender Kelly Jefferys (Horseheads, NY), were selected to participate in the North/South Senior All-Star game to be held at the University of Maryland-Baltimore County (UMBC) on June 5th.
The three Lady Monarchs are among 24 student-athletes that were selected to represent the "south" roster. They will be joined by nine other members of the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA).
Wosczyna concluded her career as the most prolific scorer in Old Dominion history. The Lady Monarchs' all-time leader in points (325), goals (206), and assists (119), Wosczyna was the first ever CAA women's lacrosse player to earn First Team All-CAA honors throughout her entire career. This season, she led the team in scoring with 57 goals, 28 assists, and 85 points in 16 games. The senior midfielder earned at least one point in every contest this season including 12 multiple scoring efforts. In addition to her scoring prowess, Wosczyna was among the leaders on her squad in groundballs (44), draw controls (42), and caused turnovers (23). On the national level, Wosczyna ranked third in points per game (5.2), seventh in goals per game (3.33), and seventh (1.87) in assists per game.
Rodriguez was Old Dominion's second leading scorer registering goals in 13 of ODU's 16 contests. The senior attacker had nine multiple scoring games including a season-high three goals in wins versus Lafayette and William & Mary and a season-high five points (2G, 3A) against Towson. Rodriguez had the highest shooting percentage on the team (.522)and was fifth on squad in groundballs (21).
Jefferys was the Lady Monarch defender assigned the task of defending some of the nation's top scorers. She helped limit then nation's leading scorer, UVA's Amy Applet, to just three goals and also held American, Lafayette, and Hofstra to single digit scoring. Defensively she also caused eight turnovers and scooped up 14 groundballs.
