SUPER TEAM

Cali Andrade, Dartmouth, Senior

Andrade’s competitiveness separated her from the pack as the two-year starter and three-year varsity player was named to the Maritime Conference All-Star team. “She scrapped for every possession,” said Dartmouth coach Chris Tresca. “She never quit, it didn’t matter if we were up by 10 or down by 10. She really motivated the younger the kids and inspired them to work hard.” As a midfielder and captain, Andrade recorded her 100th career point and finished the year with 75 (47 goals, 28 assists). She also had 54 draw controls and 68 ground balls, and shot over 50 percent. In Dartmouth’s regular season finale, she had six goals to clinch a tournament berth. The three-sport captain also played soccer and basketball and was a member of the National Honor Society. Next year she plans to study occupational therapy at the University of New Hampshire.

Lauren Arbec, Fairhaven, Senior

The two-time South Coast Conference All-Star midfielder led the Blue Devils in scoring with 32 goals and 14 assists. As a four-year varsity player and three-year starter, Arbec’s leadership was important on a young Fairhaven team. “She was everything you could want in a senior leader,” said Fairhaven coach Nate Greene. “She’s just one of those girls. She plays as hard as anybody I’ve seen in any sport. She just goes as hard as she possibly can. She knows just one speed and that’s to give everything she can.” The three-sport captain also played basketball and lacrosse, and was a standout in the classroom, graduating eighth out of 157. She was the senior class vice president. Next year Arbec plans to study statistics and play lacrosse at Worcester State University.

Emily Audycki, Bishop Stang, Senior

The four-year varsity player and two-year captain had another standout season at midfield, notching 95 points on 53 goals and 42 assists to finish as the Spartans’ leading scorer. She also had 78 ground balls to earn Eastern Athletic Conference All-Star honors for the fourth time. “It’s almost hard to coach,” said Stang coach Lauren Bailey. “There’s not much I could do to make her better. This is her sport and she knows it better than your average lacrosse player.” Audycki also contributed on the soccer and winter track teams at Bishop Stang, where she had a 4.0 GPA. Next year she plans to study finance at Boston College.

Mary Butler, Old Rochester, Freshman

Butler was a big-time contributor on defense for the South Coast Conference champion Bulldogs, who reached the Div. 2 South Semifinals. The SCC All-Star scooped up 66 ground balls and showcased her aggressiveness by causing 30 turnovers, which was second on the team only to Standard-Times Player of the Year Madison Cooney. “She’s super athletic and she was always all over the ball,” said Old Rochester coach Scott Tavares. “She just outworked every single player on the field. Anything that was on the ground, she was going to come up with.” Butler also plays basketball and soccer at Old Rochester and was a Standard-Times Super Teamer this past winter.

Amy Collard, Old Colony, Senior

Collard was a brick wall in the cage, making 180 saves this year for the Mayflower Conference champion Cougars. The conference and team MVP recorded her only career shutout this season in a 17-0 win over South Shore Christian. She helped Old Colony secure its third-straight playoff berth with her leadership. “She was a big voice on our team. She was an outstanding leader and she was the backbone of the team,” said Old Colony coach Kerstin Lindrooth of the two-time Standard-Times Super Teamer for lacrosse. “She stood out in net against the conference and non-league opponents. She could stop low shots, high shots and had super quick reaction.” The three-sport athlete also played football and basketball at Old Colony.

Lily Gendron, Apponequet, Sophomore

Gendron made the most of her first year as a starter by leading the Lakers in scoring with 52 goals and 13 assists for 65 points. The South Coast Conference All-Star made contributions on both offense and defense, splitting time at attack and midfield. She tied for the most interceptions on the team. “She’s impactful on both sides of the ball,” said Apponequet coach Laura Magno. “She’s the driving force of our attack. She’s definitely skillful and has a real sense of the game.” Gendron had a season-high six goals against Old Rochester and was named the team’s Offensive MVP for the season. She also plays field hockey at Apponequet.

Riley Piva, Dartmouth, Senior

Individual statistics didn’t matter to Piva, a Maritime Conference All-Star midfielder for the playoff-pound Indians. “She would be happy about getting five assists instead of five goals if we won,” said Dartmouth coach Chris Tresca. “She was unselfish and always positive. She was a great role model for the younger kids.” Piva notched 28 goals and 32 assists for 60 points, which was second on the team. She had 45 draw controls and 54 ground balls, and shot 40 percent. Piva also played volleyball at Dartmouth and was a member of the National Honor Society. Next year she plans to study marine science/conservation at Coastal Carolina University.

Elana Sargent, Old Colony, Junior

No one could stop Sargent on offense as the three-year starter scored a team-high 73 goals this season to surpass 200 for her career. “She always finished,” said Old Colony coach Kerstin Lindrooth of her quick midfielder. “She was a playmaker on attack.” The Mayflower Conference All-Star also had 81 draw controls. “She was a super versatile player,” said Lindrooth. “She was really consistent on the draw and all over the field.” Sargent was instrumental in Old Colony’s run to a third-straight conference title and playoff berth. A member of the National Honor Society, Sargent also figure stakes.

Megan Shay, Old Rochester, Sophomore

In her first full season starting, Shay was a force on draws for the South Coast Conference champion Bulldogs. She finished with 63 draw controls — second on the team to Standard-Times Player of the Year Madison Cooney. “She was dominant,” said Old Rochester coach Scott Tavares. “She won over 80 percent of the draws she took and the draw is such an important part of the game.” The SCC All-Star went to a variety of camps in the offseason and it paid off as she was awarded the team’s Most Improved award. Shay contributed 31 goals and 14 assists on offense. “She really worked on her craft,” Tavares said. Shay also competes on the cross country and winter track teams at Old Rochester.

Makenzie Smith, New Bedford, Senior

Smith was so unselfish with the ball, coach John Mosher had to “beg her to shoot more.” The four-year player and three-year starter answered by scoring a Maritime Conference-best and area-best 88 goals to go along with 37 assists. “She was such a pass-first player,” Mosher said of his senior attack/midfielder. “She just wanted to facilitate and distribute the ball.” The two-time conference All-Star finished her career with 195 goals and more than 100 assists. “She dominated,” Mosher said. “I don’t think there was a single game this year where she scored less than three goals. She’s as good of a player as we’ve had at this school in awhile.” Smith also played volleyball and basketball at New Bedford.

THE ALL-STARS

Cassie Andrade, GNB Voc-Tech, Junior

Andrade, a South Coast Conference Honorable Mention, was the focal point of a much-improved Bears offense. The midfielder notched a team-best 30 goals to go along with two assists. “Cassie is the type of kid who doesn’t stop,” said coach Sarah Hartley. “It didn’t matter how tired she was, she was always going at 100 percent. She constantly gave 100 percent and was a really strong ball handler.”

Megan Belmonte, Dartmouth, Junior

Belmonte started the year at attack, but after three games, she moved to midfield, where she took 90 percent of Dartmouth’s draws, coming up with 49 draw controls. The Maritime Conference All-Star shot a team-high 61 percent, finishing with 33 goals and 26 assists for 59 points. Belmonte is a three-year player and two-year starter.

Kat Gallison, Bishop Stang, Senior

Gallison was strong at the circle and around the cage, earning Eastern Athletic Conference All-Star honors as a captain. The versatile midfielder scored 40 goals and dished out 13 assists while picking up 53 ground balls. “She shoots from pretty far out and has great shot placement,” said coach Lauren Bailey. “She’s insane with her ability to win the draw for us.”

Emily Hiller, Old Rochester, Senior

Hiller could emerge from a pack with the ball and finish at the net, scoring 63 goals and assisting on 28 more to earn South Coast Conference All-Star status as an attack for the SCC champion Bulldogs. “Her ability to catch in traffic was amazing,” said coach Scott Tavares. “She had a knack for it.” Even though she only picked up a lacrosse stick as a freshman, Hiller surpassed 100 career goals this season.

Ali Hulsebosch, Old Rochester, Junior

Playing attack proved to be the right spot for Hulsebosch, a former midfielder, as she notched 68 goals to go along with 48 assists this season. The South Coast Conference All-Star surpassed 100 career goals as a two-year starter and three-year player. “She has a natural ability to score and finish,” said coach Scott Tavares. “Her strongest area is around the net so we moved her to forward and she finished second in total points for the season.”

Abby Moynihan, Apponequet, Sophomore

Moynihan had a breakout season at midfield in her second year on varsity. Playing on the circle, she had 13 goals and 17 assists in addition to playing shutdown defense. “She does it all,” said coach Laura Magno of the South Coast Conference All-Star. “Offensively she’s helping to run the offense and on defense she’s matching up against the opposing team’s best player.”

Erin Rezendes, New Bedford, Junior

The Maritime Conference All-Star was a force on both sides of the ball as a three-year starter. She scored 41 goals (second on the team) and had 23 assists. “She didn’t come off the field, playing at both ends,” said coach John Mosher. “Erin's athleticism and toughness were keys to a successful season."

Nicole Rodriguez, New Bedford, Senior

As a two-year starter in net, Rodriguez was “the best shot stopper in the area,” according to coach John Mosher. “There were girls who could pass better, but she could stop anything point-blank. Nicole's goals-against average speaks volumes of how strong she was in net.” The two-time Maritime Conference All-Star recorded 207 saves with a 7.05 GAA.

Erika Schlageter, Apponequet, Senior

On a young team with only three seniors, Schlageter, a tri-captain, emerged as a leader on and off the field. She was second on the team in goals (40) and first in assists (35) during her third year on varsity. “Her biggest games where when we had a tough challenge ahead of us,” said coach Laura Magno, noting Schlageter had strong outings against Bourne, Dartmouth and Abington.

Yanelis Torres, GNB Voc-Tech, Junior

It’s hard to believe this was just Torres’ first year playing lacrosse as she earned South Coast Conference All-Star status for her play in GNB Voc-Tech’s net. In 20 games, she recorded 244 saves, keeping the Bears in many contests. “For a first-year goalie, her ability to ask the right questions and to get the mechanics down as quickly as she did was impressive,” said coach Sarah Hartley. “She wasn’t just throwing her body in front of the ball. She picked up mechanics quickly and she had some really strong days in net.”
