NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Senior attacker Hope Hanley (Dover, Mass.), who enjoyed a record-setting campaign for the Yale women's lacrosse team, has been named second team All-Northeast Region by the IWLCA. The IWLCA announced the all-region teams on Friday, with 16 student-athletes earning first-team honors and 16 earning second-team honors in each of the four regions.

Hanley, who was named first team All-Ivy League earlier this month, capped her Yale career with an 80 point campaign (32-48-80). She set the Yale single-season record for assists, besting the old mark (established by Laura Karmatz '96 in 1994) by five. She tied the Yale record for assists and points (3-8-11) in a game in the 15-12 win vs. then-No. 19 Stanford Apr. 1, a feat that helped her earn US Lacrosse Player of the Week honors. She also had 10 points (4-6-10) in Yale's 21-3 win vs. Quinnipiac Feb. 21.

Hanley is second in the nation in assists per game (3.00) and seventh in the nation in points per game (5.00). She shot .593, with two or more points in 15 of Yale's 16 games.

Hanley finished sixth on Yale's single-season points list with 80 and eighth on Yale's career assists list with 56. A political science major in Ezra Stiles College, she was a US Lacrosse All-American in high school while playing for Loomis Chaffee. She also played for Mass Elite Lacrosse.

The last Yale player to earn all-region honors was attacker Nicole Daniggelis '16, who was a second team selection in 2014.

With help from Hanley, Yale finished the 2017 season with school records for goals (205), points (304) and draw controls (233) in a season.
