EUGENE – Oregon senior midfielder Alex Breiner received some prestigious recognition from the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association, earning a spot on the All-West/Midwest Region first team on Thursday.

The selection makes Breiner the third player in the Ducks’ history to earn first-team all-region recognition from the IWLCA. The Alexandria,Va., native led the UO attack with a career-high 64 points on 38 goals and 26 assists. The point total ties Ilsa van den Berg’s school record from 2008 and the goal and assist figures were the third best in program history.

Breiner’s efforts earned her first-team all-conference honors from the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation for the second-consecutive season. She was also placed on the MPSF’s all-tournament team after bringing the Ducks to the verge of an NCAA Tournament appearance with seven points in two MPSF Tournament contests.

Breiner finished her career in the top five of several career categories at UO. Her 61 career assists and 131 draw controls are both second on the school’s all-time list while her 120 goals and 181 points rank third.

The all-region selection puts Breiner on the ballot for All-America honors, which will be announced on May 30. Breiner is looking to become Oregon’s first IWLCA All-American.
