GRANVILLE, Ohio--  The Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association announced its All-Region award winners for the 2017 season and Denison landed five on the squad. 

Earning first-team All-Great Lakes Region was senior attack, Claire Ludlow, sophomore defender, Jane Goodspeed and junior midfielder, Leah Israel.  Second-team All-Great Lakes Region accolades went to senior midfielder Reid Hirschey and junior defender Grace Gavula.

For Ludlow, this marks her third-straight all-region award.  Last year she was a first-team selection and went on to earn second-team IWLCA All-American.  This season she was named the North Coast Athletic Conference's Offensive Player of the Year. In 19 games, Ludlow scored 45 goals and dished out 25 assists to lead the team with 70 points.  She leaves Denison ranked second in career goals (177), assists (71) and points (248).

Goodspeed is making her second-straight appearance on the All-Region first-team.  She was a first-team All-NCAC pick in 2017 after leading DU in caused turnovers (35), draw controls (63) and ground balls (45).

Israel is making her first appearance on the Great Lakes All-Region list.  She scored 31 goals and added 11 assists while playing 18 games in 2017. She posted three goals and one assist in Denison's 15-10 win over Oberlin College in the NCAC Tournament Championship.  The junior has scored 68 goals and has 28 assists in her career to go along with 108 draw controls.

For Gavula, this marks her second straight second-team All-Region award.  She caused 15 turnovers and had 40 ground balls in 18 games played.  Denison opponents averaged only 6.5 goals per game in conference play in 2017.

Rounding out the list, Hirschey picks up her first career all-region accolade after posting the best numbers of her career.  The midfielder scored 30 goals and added nine assists while shooting 43 percent.

Denison finished its season with a record of 15-4.  They won the NCAC regular season and tournament championships while advancing to their fourth-straight NCAA Division III Tournament.  The Big Red was awarded a home game in the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 1994.  In four seasons under head coach Amanda Daniels, the Big Red are 52-22 (.703) with four NCAC Tournament titles.

The IWLCA will announce its All-American squads on Friday, May 19.  First-team All-Region selections are eligible.
