Maggie Bodington and Trevor Ross from Stratford, lacrosse players at Eastern Connecticut State University, were honored by the Little East Conference for their play.

The awards are voted upon by the LEC’s head coaches.

Maggie Bodington

Bodington, a sophomore, was a first-team choice as a defender, after being named to the second team as a freshmen. She is a two-time All-LEC selection in soccer.

Bodington was named Defensive Player-of-the-Week once (May 2) during the season.

She started every game in which she appeared for the second straight year, scoring at least 20 goals and amassing at least 25 points for the second straight year, and more than doubling her total of caused turnovers.

She was fourth on the team in goals (20) and points (25) and third on the team and tied for 11th in the LEC in draw controls (43), giving her more than 100 draws (105) in only two seasons and putting her on pace to become the third player in program history with as many as 200 career draws.

In an overtime win against Keene State College on the final day of the regular season, Bodington scored her first goal of the match since the first two minutes of play to cut the Owls’ lead to one with 67 seconds left in regulation.

The women’s lacrosse team (11-6, 5-1 LEC) equaled its second-winning season in eight years, gaining a share of the LEC regular-season title on the final day of the regular season with a 16-15 overtime win over defending LEC playoff champion Keene State College.

Trevor Ross

Ross, a sophomore, was a first-team selection as a long-stick midfielder, the only first-year player in conference to earn a spot on the first team.

Eastern’s first all-conference selection at LSM in four years, Ross started all 17 matches and had 23 ground balls and caused six turnovers. Ross had at least one ground ball in 14 of the final 15 matches of the year.

The second-seeded men’s lacrosse team (10-7, 5-2 LEC) avenged a regular-season overtime loss at Plymouth State University to eliminate the Panthers, 15-14, in the semifinals and advance to the LEC final for the 15th time in 16 years.

The Warriors, eight-time LEC playoff champions, have won at least ten games 18 times in the program’s 21-year history.
