The Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association announced its selections for 2018 All-Americans and four members of The College of New Jersey were honored for their play during the past year. The four honors bring the program the 124th, 125th, 126th, and 127th honors and continues the Lions All-American streak which dates back to the 1985 season.

TCNJ’s Miranda Chrone (Moorestown)

The Lions were highlighted by Defensive Player of the Year Elizabeth Morrison. Morrison earned her second National Defensive Player of the Year honor while making the All-American First Team for the fourth consecutive year. Morrison led the nation in caused turnovers with 92, the second most in a single season in NCAA Division III history. She ended her career second in NCAA Division III history in career caused turnovers and eighth in career ground balls. Morrison graduates TCNJ as the program record holder in both single season and career caused turnovers, ground balls, and draw controls.

Joining Morrison on the First Team was junior goalie Miranda Chrone (Moorestown-NJ). Chrone led the nation in goals against average for the third consecutive season allowing just 4.44 goals per game. Chrone also ranked seventh in the country with a .557 save percentage. She also set a career high with 113 saves. Chrone enters her senior season as the program record holder for career victories at 59 and the NCAA career record holder for goals against average at 3.96.

Morrison and Chrone each earned All-Tournament honors helping to lead the Lions to the National Semi-Finals.

Making the Second Team were sophomore attacker Olivia Cleale (Yardley resident, Notre Dame-NJ) and junior midfielder Kathleen Jaeger. Cleale finished the season third in the country in assists with 65, while leading the Lions in points. Jaeger ended the season second on the team in goals and second in points behind only Cleale. Jaeger led all players in the NJAC in conference-only goals scoring 25 in six league contests.

TCNJ tied a program record with 20 wins during the 2018 season, culminating in the Lions 26th trip to the final four.

A team captain, Bray was chosen to the IWLCA Boardwalk All-Region and NJAC All-Conference first teams. She was a three-time NJAC Offensive Player of the Week selection.

A midfielder, Gretz totaled 46 points on 32 goals and 14 assists. She led the squad with 98 draw controls. Gretz was also second in ground balls (40) and assists and fourth in goals. She added 21 caused turnovers. A team captain, Gretz ranked third in the conference in draw controls, tied for eighth in assists, tied for 11th in points, tied for 13th in caused turnovers, 14th in ground balls and tied for 15th in goals.
