COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Maggie HerrNeckar of the Westminster College women’s lacrosse team was named a second team WCLA All-American, the national office announced Thursday.
HerrNeckar is a 5-foot-7 sophomore from Cottonwood Heights, Utah, that was named as one of seven players at the midfield position on the second team. HerrNeckar was second on the Griffins this season with 56 goals, and she added 11 assists to finish the year with 67 points. She put 72 of her 84 total shots on cage while picking up 55 ground balls and taking 52 draw controls.
