FRESNO, Calif. - Marcy Levatino was named to the 2013 Mountain Pacific Sports Federation All-MPSF Second-Team in a vote that was conducted by the conference coaches on Wednesday afternoon. Levatino is the second Fresno State lacrosse student-athlete to ever earn All-Conference honors.
"I am really proud of Marcy for all she has accomplished this year," said Head Coach Jessica Pausewang. "She has really progressed as a player, and I am excited to see her come back as a junior and be a leader for the team as an upper classman."
In just her second year in a Fresno State uniform, Levatino broke three school records in 2013, including the Fresno State single-game records for most points and goals with seven, and the single-game draw control record with eight. Leavatino also earned MPSF Offensive Player of the Week in the first week of the season for her standout performance against Presbyterian.
A pivotal player for the Bulldogs, Levatino started in 13 games and totaled for a team-high 30 draw controls. The sophomore midfielder had a .439 shooting percentage, finishing second on the team with 18 goals and 24 points. Levatino had a team-high 10 caused turnovers and picked up 17 groundballs for the Bulldogs.
"I think this is her starting point for where she is going next season," added Pausewang. "I am really looking forward to her next two years as a player."
California attacker, Megan Takacs was named 2013 MPSF Player of the Year. Freshman Amanda Johnson from USC was named MPSF Rookie of the Year, and Denver's seventh year Head Coach Liza Kelly was named MPSF Coach of the Year.
