McCaffrey and Widrick Chosen to Play in IWLCA Senior All-Star Game

IWLCA Release/Full Senior Game Rosters

Liberty midfielder Brianna McCaffrey and goalkeeper Katherine Widrick have both been selected to participate in the 2019 Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) Senior All-Star Game.

The game will take place next Saturday at 1 p.m. at the US Lacrosse Headquarters in Sparks, Md. In total, 44 players have been selected to participate. The players have been divided into two teams, North and South. McCaffrey and Widrick will compete for the South Team, led by Richmond head coach Allison Kwolek.

They are the first two players in Liberty women's lacrosse history to be invited to the prestigious event, which showcases the top seniors in the nation. McCaffrey and Widrick are two of three ASUN players (Harley Barrett, Coastal Carolina) set to compete in the contest.

McCaffrey was an ASUN All-Conference first team recipient in her final season as a Lady Flame in 2019. The senior is one of two players in program history to earn four all-conference distinctions. Additionally, she earned four ASUN weekly honors (three defensive player of the week, one player of the week), the most of any player in the conference.

The Boca Raton, Fla., native is second in the nation in caused turnovers per game (3.11) for a Liberty squad which led the nation in caused turnovers per game (15.79). She finished the season with 56 caused turnovers, 51 ground balls, 51 draw controls, 35 goals, three assists and 38 points.

Widrick was an ASUN All-Conference second team honoree this spring and won 14 games in goal, the most in a single season by a goalkeeper in program history. She also earned ASUN Defensive Player of the Week recognition on Feb. 12, which was Liberty's first-ever ASUN weekly award.

The Camillus, N.Y., native sported a 9.43 goals-against-average during her final campaign, which is 11th best in the nation. Widrick had eight games of 10 or more saves and a total of 142 saves on the year to go along with a .458 save percentage and 48 ground balls (third on team). She finished her career as the winningest netminder in program history with 27 victories and is third in career ground balls with 152.
