STANFORD, Calif. – Stanford placed four players on the IWLCA All-West Region women’s lacrosse team, including two – Hannah Farr and Megan Lerner -- on the first team.

The all-region honors are the first for both players. Teammates Lucy Dikeou and Rachel Ozer were named to the second team. It was the second second-team honor for Ozer and the first for Dikeou.

Lerner is a senior defender graduating with a degree in human biology and with aspirations of becoming an orthopedic surgeon. She emerged last season as Stanford’s single-season record-holder in draw controls. This year, her impact has been most evident not in statistics but in all-around play.

Lerner, who plays with a passion and determination that makes her invaluable around the circle or the fan, which allows her to corral draw controls, or get to ground balls or rebounds on the defense end. Lerner led the team in ground balls (34) and was second in draw controls (39). She finished her career at No. 4 at Stanford all-time in draw controls.

Farr is a junior midfielder and a two-sport athlete from Hillsborough, Calif. Farr, who also plays soccer for Stanford, was the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation lacrosse Player of the Year. Farr was a captain, and a fierce competitor who demands the most out of herself and teammates. She led the team in draw controls (41) and was second in points (40) and ground balls (33), tied for second in goals (31) and assists (13), and tied for fourth in caused turnovers (13).

Ozer is a senior attacker from Moraga, Calif., who led the Cardinal in points (47) and goals (34).  Ozer is quick and difficult to defend. She also has a rocket shot for her size and is able to finish on any spot on the cage.  Game after game she draws the opponents’ top defenders and still manages to get her share of goals. Ozer will graduate in atmosphere and energy engineering, but will return for a fifth season as she earns her masters in mechanical engineering.

Dikeou, a sophomore midfielder from Denver, is fast and uses her speed to make plays on both the offensive and defensive ends. She is not only fast in space, but has quickness with her dodges as well. Dikeou, like Farr, ranked among Stanford’s top five in points (40), goals (31), assists (9), ground balls (25), draw controls (32), and caused turnovers (22).

Farr and Lerner are Stanford’s first first-team all-region selections since 2011 after helping the Cardinal to a 14-5 record and a berth in the NCAA tournament.
