Halls, Quinn, women’s lacrosse standouts, earn All-PSAC honors

LOCK HAVEN, Pa. – Amy Halls of Westerville, Ohio, and Casey Quinn of Vernon, N.J., both Slippery Rock University women’s lacrosse standouts, have been named to All-Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference honors by the league office. Halls was named to the first team at attack, while Quinn was named to the second team midfield.

Halls becomes the first SRU player to be named to three All-Conference teams, joining her first team selection from 2009 and her second team nod from last season. Quinn’s selection marks the first postseason honor of her career.

Quinn has been named the Most Valuable Player in voting by the team after each of the last two seasons.  

SRU tied the school record for wins in a season with an 11-6 overall record in 2011. It marked the first time since the program was reinstated in 2007 that the team posted a winning season.

Slippery Rock has placed at least two student-athletes on the All-PSAC squad in each of the last three years.

P.S. - The May 4 Good News regarding the success of Slippery Rock University students at the annual Mathematical Contest in Modeling, incorrectly identified Andrew Brown’s major and hometown. Brown, the award recipient, is a mathematics major from Pittsburgh.

Slippery Rock University is Pennsylvania’s premier public residential university. Slippery Rock University provides students with a comprehensive learning experience that intentionally combines academic instruction with enhanced educational and learning opportunities that make a positive difference in their lives.
