Barry leads the team in goals (45), which places her sixth in the Ivy League. 

Belodeau is the first freshman in Penn women’s lacrosse history to earn First-Team All-Ivy honors. She has set the school single-season freshman record in goals (35), assists (32, the most in the Ivy League), and points (67).

Rosenzweig’s 67 points are tied for fifth all-time in a single season by a Penn player.

Penn’s nine All-Ivy selections are the third-most in program history behind the 1981 team (11) and 1982 team (10). The Quakers are the only team with multiple unanimous All-Ivy honorees. 

Five of Penn’s All-Ivy selections will return for the 2019 season, including three First-Team selections. Head Coach Karin Corbett has now coached 45 First-Team All-Ivy players in her 19 years leading the Red & Blue.
