WATERVILLE, Maine – The 2018 North Atlantic Conference (NAC) Women's Lacrosse postseason awards have been released and six Husson University players have been honored.
Amanda Deshaies, a 2016 and 2017 Second Team All-NAC honoree, claims First Team honors for the first time in her career - becoming the second player in program history to earn three or more All-Conference selections - after registering 37 goals and 15 assists for 88 points in 12 games in her final season in a HU uniform. The 2015 NAC Rookie of the Year added 66 ground balls, 72 draw controls, and 39 caused turnovers to her impressive stat line.
This season, Deshaies became the first player in program history to surpass the century mark in goals, doing so on April 4th in the Eagles 15-8 victory at Maine Maritime and most recently setting new single-game marks for goals (9) and points (10) vs. Dean on April 20th.
A four-year member of the HU women's lacrosse program, Deshaies will leave the program as the all-time career in goals (119), points (173), ground balls (219), draw controls (179), caused turnovers (111), women-up goals (8), and free-position goals (23).
Paige Daigle claims her first All-Conference honor after being named to the All-NAC Second Team. The freshman registered 29 goals, 11 assists for 40 total points with 23 ground balls, seven draw controls, and 10 caused turnovers while appearing in all 12 games. She ranked 12th in the conference in goals and 14th in both goals and assists.
Cali Newton earns Second Team All-NAC honors for the first time after tallying 23 goals and four assists for 27 total points with 28 ground balls and 46 caused turnovers while playing in all 12 games.

Earning her second career All-NAC selection, Serian Williams joins her three teammates on the Second Team. In the 12 games she played in, the junior tallied three goals and four assists for seven total points with 34 ground balls, one draw control, and 10 caused turnovers.
