3 from Washington earn all-conference nod in women’s lacrosse

CHESTERTOWN — Washington College senior midfielder Abby Laubach of Lancaster, Pennsylvania capped her historically great lacrosse season with selection to the Centennial Conference’s elite first team.

Also in voting by the conference’s 10 head coaches, sophomore attacker Mia Salvatierra of Bel Air (Fallston High School) was placed on the second team and junior goalkeeper McKenna Seashole of Spring Grove, Pennsylvania earned honorable mention.

Senior defender Maddie Morris of Reisterstown (Garrison Forest) represented the Shore ladies on the conference’s All-Sportsmanship Team.

Laubach is now a three-time all-conference player, moving up from the second team in 2022 and 2021.

Her 2023 season was abbreviated to 11 games because of injury.

She started all 18 games for 11-7 Washington, posting career highs in assists (26), points (49) and draw controls (91).

She led the team leader in assists and draw controls, and tied for first in caused turnovers (14) and free position goals (8).

Laubach has a share of the school record of 212 career draws, tying All-American Emily Hubley ’15.

In 55 career games, she totaled 79 goals, 56 assists and 135 points. 

Salvatierra led the Shore ladies in goals (42) and points (65), tied Laubach for the team lead in free position goals (8) and was second in assists (23).

She appeared in 17 games — all starts — and had at least one point in every game. Her best effort was eight points on five goals and three assists in the regular-season finale, an 18-14 victory at McDaniel on April 27.

In 35 career games, all starts, she has 70 goals and 33 assists for 103 points to go along with 36 ground balls.

Seashole, who transferred to Washington from York (Pennsylvania) in the off-season, started all 18 games in the net. She totaled 1,006 minutes. Her line included 203 saves with a .471 save percentage, including a career-high 19 stops in a win over Muhlenberg in the first round of the Centennial Conference Tournament.

Morris was first-year head coach Meghan Keelan Lewis’ choice for the All-Sportsmanship Team. She started all 18 games.

Overall, Morris appeared in 57 games with 51 starts. Her career stats include 56 ground balls, 41 draws and 26 caused turnovers.

Washington finished 5-4 in the Centennial Conference and qualified for the conference tournament as the fifth seed.

Washington soundly defeated host Muhlenberg, 17-9, in the opening round of the tournament to avenge an 11-6 loss at home during the regular season, but was eliminated in the semifinal round by then-No. 6-ranked Gettysburg, 20-6.
