Kaitlyn McCaffrey and Angela Napoletano For just the fourth time in program history, a record-tying three Muhlenberg women’s lacrosse players earned All-Centennial Conference recognition.

Stephanie Umbach led the way, becoming just the fourth player in CC history to earn first-team honors as a freshman. Senior Angela Napoletano and sophomore Kaitlyn McCaffrey were named to the second team. Stephanie Umbach

Just the seventh first-team selection in school history, Umbach (left) ranked in the top three on the team in goals (3rd), assists (3rd), ground balls (1st), draw controls (1st) and caused turnovers (1st). She leads the conference and ranks 51st in the country (10th amongst freshmen) in caused turnovers per game (1.92) and is 48th nationally (10th amongst freshmen) in draw controls per game (4.92).

She finished the year with 64 draw controls, the second-most in a season in school history, including a single-game record 12 against Swarthmore.

Napoletano (far right) earned the first all-conference honors of her career after tying for the team lead with 32 goals and finishing second with 32 draw controls. She currently is ninth in the conference in goals per game. The team co-captain finished her career 16th on the school’s all-time scoring list with 114 points and 13th in career goals with 92.

Even while battling early season injuries, McCaffrey (near right) continued to make an impact on the Mule defense. Despite missing five games, she still ranked third on the team in caused turnovers (13), fourth in draw controls (23) and fifth in ground balls (21). She would be third in the conference in caused turnovers per game if she had played in enough games to qualifying for the statistical rankings.
