Three members of the Oswego State women’s lacrosse team were named to the All-Empire Region squad as voted on by the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association. Esther Gabriel ’16 earned a spot on the First Team while Erannan Shattuck ’16 and Teresa Shattuck ’19 both took home Second Team honors.
The IWLCA and Zag Sports named Heather Titanic ’16 and Gabriel to its annual Division III Academic Honor Roll list. Titanic of Buffalo, N.Y., accumulated a 3.52 GPA and earned a Bachelor of Science in business administration with minors in communication and social interaction as well as health science. Gabriel of Lancaster, N.Y., earned a cumulative GPA of 3.81 and graduated in the spring with a degree in philosophy and a minor in logic.
Gabriel earned the All-Region honors on the heels of the best season of her career. In 2016, her 47 goals ranked seventh in the conference and first on the Laker squad. Even more impressive was her 12-of-18 (.667) free position percentage, which topped all SUNYAC players and was the 11th highest efficiency in the country. She finished with 52 points on the year, which was third most on the team as well. Aside from scoring, Gabriel also controlled the fifth most draws in the conference (70) and scooped the 10th most ground balls (37). Gabriel took home numerous awards last spring, including First Team All-SUNYAC honors, the SUNY Chancellor’s Award and Oswego State Female Athlete of the Week.
Erannan Shattuck also had a dominant senior season as her 77 points were the second most on the team and seventh most in the SUNYAC. She was known as a primary helper, recording the fourth most assists in the country (53) and most in a single-season by a Laker. Her 3.31 assists-per-game tops that, as it places her second in Division III. She was a member of the All-SUNYAC Second Team as well.
In her freshman campaign, Teresa Shattuck shined. She not only earned Second Team All-Region honors but also was selected to the All-Conference Second Team and named the SUNYAC Rookie of the Year. The Syracuse, N.Y., native recorded 79 points on the season, leading all Lakers and placing her fifth in the conference. She is known as a key distributer, as 49 of those points came as assists, ranking her ninth in the country.
