Dunlap, Wheeler selected to play in North-South All-Star Game
May 28, 2014
Recent Vanderbilt graduates and co-captains Alyssa Dunlap and Abby Wheeler have been selected to play in the 2014 Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association North-South All-Star Game.
Fellow senior captain Brandi Byner was also chosen to play but will not play in the game due to a knee injury. The Franklin native led the team in caused turnovers for the second straight year with 25 and also topped the team with 32 ground balls. She started 62 games in her career.
Wheeler, a senior captain from Charlottesville, Va., was named to the ALC Second Team and led the team with a career-high 38 goals. That total ranked sixth in the conference. She also dished out seven assists.
She scored four goals or more five times this season. She notched a career-high seven goals, including two in the final 35 seconds of overtime, in a come-from-behind win against then-No. 13 Stanford on March 2. She was named the ALC Offensive Player of the Week the following week. The seven goals were the most for VU this season and second-most in program history.
