Two Rock players make Lacrosse Senior All-Star game

Amy Halls, a Slippery Rock University lacrosse standout from Westerville, Ohio, and Casey Quinn, a team standout from Vernon, N.J., have been selected to play in the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association's Division II North/South Senior All-Star game at 1 p.m., Saturday, as members of the South team.

The game is part of the annual All-Star weekend in Downingtown.

Both women earned the All-Star nod after leading SRU to the best single-season record in school history and finishing their careers ranked as the top-two scorers in program history.

The All-Star recognition is the second postseason honor for both seniors after they were named to All-Conference honors in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference.

She finished her career as the all-time leading scorer with 215 career goals, 48 assists and 263 points. She is the only player in SRU history to pass the 200 goal and 250-point milestones.

Quinn was named the team’s Most Valuable Player for four consecutive years. She finished the year with 36 goals, seven assists and 43 points. She also picked up a team-high 42 ground balls and caused a team-high 21 turnovers. She finishes her career with 150 goals, 30 assists and 181 points. She is the second player in school history to reach the 150-goal milestone. Quinn also leaves as the all-time record holder in ground balls with 160 and caused turnovers with 92.
