Lesley University midfielder McKenna Straube was selected to the 2018 United Soccer Coaches NCAA Division III Women's All-New England Region second team.
Straube led the Lynx to an undefeated 9-0 regular season conference record, and Lesley’s second consecutive NECC Championship. The senior was dominant at the defensive midfielder position, as Lesley did not allow a single goal in regular season conference play. The senior also tacked on a goal and an assist. Straube was named the 2018 NECC Women’s Soccer Player of the Year, and was also a first team All-Conference selection.
Lesley’s season came to a close with a 3-0 loss to Amherst in the NCAA Tournament.
