Women’s Lacrosse Lands Three on All-ODAC Teams

FOREST, Va. – Three Bridgewater College women's lacrosse players were tabbed to the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) All-ODAC teams released on Tuesday afternoon following a vote by the league's head coaches.

Junior attacker Taylor Chamberlain and sophomore defender Caroline Augsburger were named to the conference's second team while freshman midfielder Carli Bafford rounded out the trio of selections with a third team nod.

Chamberlain enjoyed another outstanding statistical year for the Eagles and earned her second All-ODAC recognition for her efforts. The Finksburg, Md. native tallied 38 goals and assisted on 16 other Bridgewater goals to finish the year with 54 points which ranked ninth in the league. Chamberlain ranked in the top 15 in the conference in every major offensive category. On the year, Chamberlain posted seven games with three goals or more including a five-goal explosion in Bridgewater's Spring Break victory over Millsaps. The junior also netted her 100th career goal during the season.

Augsburger turned in a strong second year with the program en route to earning all-conference accolades for the first time in her career. A native of Lancaster, Pa., Augsburger caused 18 turnovers on the season to rank 18th in the conference and also pulled down 25 draw controls on the year. Augsburger helped lead the Bridgewater defense to 158 caused turnovers on the season which ranked fourth in the conference.

Finally, Bafford had a stellar rookie season from her midfield post to earn third team recognition. Bafford netted a team high 42 goals on the year, including nine games with three goals or more. The freshman registered four straight games with four goals in league play and posted a career-high five goals in a loss to Roanoke. The Westminster, Md. native ranked ninth in the league in scoring with 42 goals and led the conference in free-position goals with 19 goals on 33 attempts. Bafford also cracked the top 10 in draw controls with 66, good enough for sixth in the conference.

Washington and Lee University mentor Brooke O'Brien earned ODAC Coach of the Year honors, while Lynchburg College midfielder Katherine Francis received ODAC Rookie of the Year accolades.
