(Carlisle, Pa.) – The Dickinson women's lacrosse team had two players named to the 2019 Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) All-Region Team, announced on Monday.

Senior Anne Dunster (Cos Cobb, Conn./Greenwich) was a First-team selection for the second straight season after making her third appearance on the All-Centennial Conference squad, earning First-team honors for the past two years and honorable mention as a sophomore. Dunster capped a brilliant career with an outstanding senior season, breaking the school record for points in a season and ranking fifth in the conference with 77 points.

Dunster cracked the program's top 10 with 44 goals and 33 assists to rank sixth and third, respectively, and moved into second all-time with 224 career points and 90 assists. She finished fifth in career goals, scoring 134 times in 68 games a Red Devil. Dunster set the conference playoff record, scoring eight goals in the opening round match-up with Haverford and holds the program record for assists by a first-year, handing out 21 in her rookie season in 2016.

Sophomore Clare Janzer (Havertown, Pa./Haverford) makes her first appearance on the All-Region Team, earning Second-team honors. She was a First-team All-Centennial Conference recognition on defense as well. Janzer continued to get better every game and has become a key component to the Red Devil defense.

Janzer has quickly developed into a true shutdown defender, keeping opponent's top scorers in check while drawing the toughest defensive assignments. She held the conference's leading scorer to just a pair of goals in their first meeting and scoreless in the first half of the conference playoff game. Janzer forced 15 turnovers and controlled 20 GBs on the year. In addition, she played a key role in transition as the Red Devils had a successful clear rate of 84 percent.

The Red Devils broke into the national rankings, moving up to #-22 in the weekly coaches' poll. They finished 11-6 overall and 6-3 in the Centennial, earning the #4-seed in the conference playoffs.
