The Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) has named four members of the Oswego State women's lacrosse team to one of its All-Empire Region teams.

Angela Ponto and Teresa Shattuck earned first team honors, while Brigid Regin and Danielle Walker received second team accolades. This is the most players that Oswego has had named to an All-Region team for a single season in program history.

Ponto, Oswego's all-time saves leader, was dominant in the net for the Lakers. Her .541 save percentage was not only a conference-high, but currently has her at 10th place in the nation. Likewise, Ponto's 8.57 goals-against average was another SUNYAC-best, tied with Annie Casey of Cortland. The All-Region honor is one of many awards the senior has earned for her performance in the 2018 season, in addition to a spot on the All-SUNYAC First Team and the SUNYAC Championship's All-Tournament Team.

Like Ponto, Shattuck also put up nationally-ranked numbers. Oswego's all-time assists leader continued to dish them out in her junior season, ranking fourth in the country with an average of 3.41 assists per game. Shattuck's 58 assists were a conference-best, and were 20 more than the player in second place. The Syracuse, N.Y. native was also atop the SUNYAC leaderboard in points, with 88. Shattuck excelled in draw controls too, ranking second in the conference with 86.

Regin was dominant offensively for the Lakers as well. Her points (61), goals (42), assists (19) and draw controls (38) were all the second-most for Oswego. The midfielder's 42 goals were also good for fourth in the conference. Regin's highlight of her junior season came the week of April 8, as she led Oswego to two conference victories. First, Regin outscored the entire New Paltz team with seven goals to secure a 14-5 win for Oswego. Then, the Syracuse, N.Y. native notched five points in a 19-2 win at Fredonia. Regin earned the SUNYAC Athlete of the Week award for her efforts.

Joining Regin on the second team is Walker. Walker caused 30 turnovers on the season, which led the Lakers and was the third-most in the SUNYAC. The junior also collected 39 ground balls for Oswego, ranking second on the team and sixth in the conference. Walker was crucial to Oswego's defense, helping the Lakers allow an average of less than nine goals per game to their opponents.

Shattuck has now been recognized as All-Region in each of her three season at Oswego. Ponto and Walker's All-Region honors are their first, while Regin – who earned NJCAA All-Region and All-America at Onondaga Community College – notches her first All-Region accolade as a Laker.
