Jordan Named to IWLCA All-Region Team

Senior Midfielder Third Player in Program History to be Honored

            GORHAM, Maine -- University of Southern Maine senior women's lacrosse player Aliza Jordan (Gorham, Maine) added another accolade to her resume when she became the third player in program history to be selected for the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association's (IWLCA) 2019 All-Region Team that was released Monday afternoon.  Jordan was named to the IWLCA All-Region Second Team in the Pilgrim Region.

            Jordan joins former USM standout midfielders Jessica Knight (2010) and Jacki Kelly (2013) on the list of IWLCA All-Region recipients.  Jordan also was named to the All-Little East Conference first team earlier this month.

            "Aliza had an amazing season and an incredible career here at USM," commented second-year head coach Ashley Durepo upon receiving the news.  "Not only did she perform well on the field, but she also excelled academically and as a leader for our team. It has been a pleasure to coach someone who enjoys the sport of lacrosse so much."

            In her third season with the Huskies, Jordan had a record-breaking campaign.  She broke the single-season scoring record with 94 points on 63 goals and a record-tying 31 assists, and finished her career joining Knight as the only players to accumulate 200 or points.  Jordan tallied 155 goals (third all-time) and a record 70 assists for 225 points.

            In addition to her season and career marks, Jordan set single-game school records for points in a game with 11 (8g, 3a) against the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth (April 24), and ground balls (12) and draw controls (14) against New England College (April 10).

            Twice during the 2019 season, Jordan, a two-time captain, was selected as the Little East Conference Offensive Player of the Week.

            Led by Jordan, Southern Maine finished the season 10-6 overall and 6-1 in the Little East.  USM's second-place finish in the LEC standings equaled the program's best regular-season finish, and the Huskies advanced to the LEC championship game for the fourth time in program history.

            The IWLCA recognized 256 players in eight regions with All-Region honors.
