Bosco was named the Big Ten Defender of the Year with 3.15 groundballs per game, good for seventh in the country. She was also a Tewaaraton nominee.
Cordingley ranks fourth in the nation in both points and assists. She was named the Big Ten Attacker of the Year, the Big Ten Tournament MVP and is a Tewaaraton award finalist.
Junior midfielder Shaylan Ahearn was named to the third team, while graduate midfielder Grace Griffin, graduate attacker Hannah Leubecker, and junior attacker Libby May earned honorable mentions.
