COLUMBUS, Ohio – Senior attack Cian Dabrowski has been named to the 2016 IWLCA First Team All-West/Midwest Region team, announced today by the IWLCA. She is the ninth first team selection for Ohio State since 2011 and the 18th overall in that span under head coach Alexis Venechanos.
Dabrowski is now eligible for inclusion on the IWLCA All-American teams, which will be announced on Wednesday, May 18. The IWLCA will honor the National All-Americans at the IWLCA All-American banquet on Saturday June 4, 2016 at the Radisson Hotel Valley Forge in King of Prussia, Pa.
Dabrowski, who also was a first team All-Big Ten selection this year, finished the regular season ranked in the Top 5 in nearly every Big Ten offensive category. She led the Big Ten with 64 points (4.0 per game) in the regular season, tied for second with 2.9 goals per game, was fifth with 1.1 assists per game and tied for first with 12 free-position goals. She recorded nine hat tricks and had seven games with four or more goals.
She scored her 100th career goal in the win at Hofstra when she recorded a career-high six goals in just 40 minutes of play, winning Big Ten offensive player of the week honors for her efforts. Dabrowski, from Amaranth, Ontario, played some of her best lacrosse against top competition. She scored four goals and had three assists in the win over No. 9 Penn State, had two goals and an assist in the win over No. 18 Johns Hopkins, three goals at No. 14 Stanford and recorded four goals and two assists vs. No. 18 Northwestern. Cian also has been relentless on the draw, finishing third on the team with 39.
Dabrowski’s play this year has helped Ohio State set program records with its 11-1 start, a nine-game winning streak and a No. 8 Top 20 ranking in the Inside Lacrosse poll. Her senior class recorded 45 wins over the last four years, tying for the most all-time with the 2015 seniors.
