GRAND LAKE, Colo. – The Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) announced its 2014 all-region teams and Washington and Lee has four honorees across the All-Chesapeake Region first and second teams.
Senior attacker Margaret Klein (North Andover, Mass. / Brooks) and senior defender Leanne Stone (Darien, Conn. / Darien) were named First Team All-Chesapeake Region, while senior midfielder Meade Brewster (Brookside, N.J. / West Morris Mendham) and senior defender Olive Waxter (Baltimore, Md. / Roland Park) were selected for second team all-region accolades.
The 2014 Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) Player of the Year, Klein registered a team-leading 49 goals and nine assists this season. She is second on the team with 58 points, and has also amassed 22 ground balls and 20 draw controls, and caused 11 turnovers. During her time as a General, Klein has seen action in 78 games with 71 starts, and has tallied 145 goals and 31 assists for 176 points, 53 draw controls, 66 ground balls and 25 caused turnovers. She is currently ranked fourth all-time at W&L for career goals and eighth for career points, and was also named to the ODAC All-Tournament Team and First Team All-ODAC squad earlier this season.
Stone earned her second consecutive first-team selection after being named to the top team as a junior and senior. W&L ranks 14th in the nation and first in the ODAC in scoring defense with a 7.24 goals-against average this season. Stone leads the team in both ground balls (56) and caused turnovers (40). She has made an appearance in 77 games with 74 starts over her four years as a General, and has tallied 192 ground balls and 119 caused turnovers.
Appearing in all 19 games to date, Brewster has notched 23 points on 16 goals and seven assists to receive her second-straight second team laurel.

Waxter picks up her first career all-region award after starting all 19 games for the Generals. She joined Stone on the defensive unit that allowed just 7.24 goals-against average and ranked 14th nationally. Waxter ranks second on the team in ground balls (50), caused turnovers (23) and draw controls (29).
