Stanford lacrosse players named to all-regional team


Stanford placed three players on the IWLCA All-West/Midwest Region team, including two -- Adrienne Anderson and Lucy Dikeou -- on the first team. Hannah Farr was named to the second team.

The all-region honors were the first for Anderson and second for Dikeou and Farr.

USC sophomore attacker Michaela Michael, a graduate of Menlo School, also was named to the first team. Earlier, Michael was named Player of the Year in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation.

Anderson is a junior defender majoring in psychology. Named to the All-MPSF first team, Anderson distinguished herself as one of the top one-on-one defenders in the country, typically drawing the opponent's best players.

She held USC's Michael, the MPSF goals leader, to one goal and no assists in their regular-season showdown. 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.

Dikeou is a junior midfielder majoring in product design. She was an All-MPSF first-team choice and one of 25 to receive nominations for the Tewaaraton Award, emblematic of the country's top player. Dikeou completed her season with five goals, six groundballs, three caused turnovers, and an assist in Stanford's NCAA first-round loss to Florida on Friday.

The performance was typical in many ways for Dikeou, who led Stanford in goals, points, draw controls, groundballs, and caused turnovers. With 64 draw controls, she broke Stanford's season record in the same year in which her 48 goals tied for fourth-highest in school history. Against Cal, she scored a school record seven goals and had eight assists, two off the Cardinal mark.

Farr is a senior midfielder of out St. Ignatius. She is graduating with a degree in science, technology, and society with a concentration in innovation, technology, and organizations -- and a minor in creative writing. Farr is a four-time All-MPSF first-team player as well as a team captain and a two-sport starter (along with soccer).

Farr, the 2014 MPSF Player of the Year and second-team All-America, played with tenacity and contributed in nearly every manner -- such as scoring goals, playing defense and getting draw controls. She also led the team in assists, with 20.

By earning all-region recognition, each is eligible for All-America consideration.

Anderson and Dikeou now join a select group of 10 players in Stanford history to receive first-team all-region honors. In all, 18 Stanford players have made the all-region first or second teams.
