Farr leads Stanford contingent on All-MPSF lacrosse


Stanford senior midfielder Hannah Farr became the second player in school history to be named to the All-Mountain Pacific Sports Federation women's lacrosse team all four years.

Farr was among four members of the MPSF regular-season champion Cardinal to receive first-team honors. Two more were selected to the second team.

Farr, the 2014 MPSF Player of the Year out of San Francisco's St. Ignatius Prep, has been a four-time first-team selection, joining Lauren Schmidt (2007-11) in Stanford history. Farr has 29 goals and 15 assists for a Stanford team that is ranked No. 15 in the nation and opens the postseason on Friday in the semifinals of the MPSF tournament in Denver.

Other Stanford first-team selections are junior midfielder Lucy Dikeou, fifth-year senior attack Rachel Ozer, and junior defender Adrienne Anderson. Second-team selections are defender junior defender Meg Lentz and freshman goalie AllieDaCar.

Dikeou, who had eight draw controls and seven goals in a single game (last week against Cal) is a player who lights up a box score. Dikeou has 39 goals and 11 assists and leads Stanford in points, goals, shots, shots on goal, draw controls, caused turnovers, game-winning goals, and free-position goals.

She and Maryland superstar Taylor Cummings are the only players in the country averaging at least 3.30 pts., 3.80 draw controls, 1.60 groundballs, and 1.25 caused turnovers per game. If you add Dikeou's over-.500 shot percentage to those standards, she is alone in the nation.

She is the only MPSF player among the 25 nominees for the Tewaaraton Award, which is awarded to the top player in college lacrosse.

Ozer has 22 goals and 15 assists and is among Stanford's career leaders in every offensive category.

Anderson is Stanford's primary man-to-man marker against opponents' top offensive threats. She held MPSF goals leader Michaela Michael, who was named MPSF Player of the Year, to one goal and no assists. Anderson also held Notre Dame scoring leader Cortney Fortunato without a goal and held Ohio State points leader Jackie Cifarelli to one goal and one assist.

Lentz, a fast and athletic team captain, excelled after switching from midfield to defense this season. DaCar had 14 saves while holding second-place USC to its lowest goal total of the conference season, in a 12-6 Cardinal victory on April 19.

This is the third All-MPSF honor for Dikeou and Ozer, and second for Anderson and Lentz.
