Senior Areta Buness was named Midfielder of the Year and All-State 1st Team member; senior Kate Hall and sophomore Katie Hobaica were named to the All-State Honorable Mention Team.

Xavier’s lacrosse program received the “Honor the Game” Award for pioneering the student statistician program, modeling the appropriate “extension of the referees” behavior at the scorer’s table during the games, and exemplifying sportsmanship on the field and during pre-game activities at both home and away games.
