Senior Emily Hawryschuk and sophomore Sarah Cooper were first-team selections, redshirt junior Kerry Defliese was named to the second team and sophomore Megan Carney earned an honorable mention. The Orange are one of three Division I teams with multiple first-team selections. Hawryschuk, an attacker, earned IWLCA All-American honors last season after leading the team with 75 goals — second-most in SU single-season history. Cooper gets the nod after notching 2019 ACC rookie of the year last summer. The defender led the Orange with 33 caused turnovers and was second on the team with 36 ground balls. Cooper was the only freshman in the country on the 2019 Tewaaraton Award Watch List. Another returner to the Orange defense, Defliese, was second on the team in caused turnovers (28) and third in ground balls (33). Both Defliese and Cooper were voted to the 2019 All-ACC second team. Attacker Megan Carney was third on the team in goals (32) and second in assists (24). The sophomore had five points in both of SU’s NCAA Tournament games last spring.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse opens the season on Feb. 7 at home against Canisius. Commentslast_img
