Lyco’s Lazarich honored as an NCAA Woman of the Year nominee

A seven-time all-conference honoree and one of the best women’s soccer and lacrosse players in school history, Jordan Lazarich was honored as Lycoming College’s NCAA Woman of the Year nominee, the NCAA announced on Thursday, July 12. Lazarich is one of four student-athletes eligible to win the MAC Commonwealth’s NCAA Woman of the Year, which will be announced in July.

Also nominated from the MAC Commonwealth were: Arcadia soccer player Jessica Kelly, Widener field hockey player Kayla Herr and Stevenson volleyball player Annika Schwartz. Lazarich is the second Lycoming women’s lacrosse player to be honored as a NCAA Woman of the Year nominee, joining Brooke Strausser, who was the honoree in 2013, and the third soccer player to earn the nomination, joining 2012 nominee Kelly Prendergast and 2016 nominee Bree Nishibun.

In soccer, Lazarich rewrote the school’s offensive record book, posting program-records of 137 points and 62 goals. Her 62 goals are tied with Jeff Kocher of the men’s program for the most goals by a Lycoming soccer player.

In lacrosse, Lazarich finished her career second in program history with 273 career points, third with 201 goals and 72 assists and second with 290 draw controls.
