McElaney, also a team captain, leads the team in goals (60) and points (77) and has 17 assists, second-best on the team. Her 60 goals leads all conference players while her 77 points puts her tied for first. She has started all 17 games this season and has two game-winning goals, 34 ground balls, ties for a team-best 31 draw controls and 14 caused turnovers.

Lycett, meanwhile, has also started all 17 games and is third on the team in ground balls (31) and leads SU with 25 caused turnovers. Lycett, a team captain, and the Susquehanna defense have forced 333 opponent turnovers this season.

McHugh is the team's leader in assists with 25 to go along with 53 points – second most on the team – and 28 goals. Her 25 assists are also tied for the conference lead. A team captain, McHugh has connected on nearly half of her free position shots (9-of-20) and also has 19 ground balls, 16 draw controls and 14 caused turnovers in her 17 starts.

Burnett has put up numbers on both sides of the field this season but was recognized largely for her defensive efforts.
