Three From Women's Lax Collect All-ODAC Honors

FOREST, Va. – Three members of the Virginia Wesleyan University women's lacrosse team have been named All-Conference members by the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) for their performances during the 2019 season. Tori Manahan and Jordan Callahan both earned spots on the Second Team while Jordan Moilanen was tabbed a Third Team member.

Manahan finished another impressive year as a Marlin, starting all 17 games on the schedule. A force in the midfield, the junior was tied for the most points on the team with a career-high 46. Of those points, 39 of them came on goals as she scored in all but two games. Manahan finished with nine multi-goal games, including a six-goal performance against Ferrum. Aside from scoring, the Westminster, Md. native was also key on the restart for Coach Clarkson, ending the season with 37 draw controls.

Callahan was the ultimate utility player for the Marlins, making a switch to defense midway through the season. There, the senior excelled as she led the team in caused turnovers (24) and groundballs (33). Twice, she set career highs for caused turnovers, racking up five against Methodist University and Hope College. She would also scoop up a career-high six GBs against Marymount. Callahan also contributed on offense as she finished the year with eight points on seven goals and one assist.

Moilanen was a steadfast between the pipes all year, starting all 12 games she played in. The sophomore picked up six wins on the season, boasting the second best save percentage in the conference (45.5%). Seven games she reached double-digit saves, matching a career-high with a 16 save performance against Widener.
