The Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) recently announced its 2022 Women’s Lacrosse All-Conference Teams and major award winners, and there were three members of the Salve Regina women’s lacrosse team among the honorees.
Goalie Grace Haesche ’25 finished the regular season third in the league in goals-against average (9.81) and first in save percentage (52.9 percent), which also ranks her in the top 25 of NCAA Division III.
