West Linn grad Hanna Morford stars for Redlands women's lacrosse
West Linn's Hanna Morford was nothing short of great during her high school lacrosse career.
Now a sophomore at the University of Redlands, Morford has continued that greatness.
First, Morford, a midfielder, was one of six Redlands players honored on All-Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Teams for contributions during the 2017 season. Morford and junior goalkeeper Quinn Egan both earned first-team accolades.
Morford won her spot on the first team in just her second season with the Bulldogs. In 10 conference games, she played an instrumental role in the Redlands' offense, scoring a team-high 25 goals and dishing out 12 assists for 37 points. She converted six free-position shots in the process.
Throughout the SCIAC season, she scored at least one goal in every game. Beyond scoring, Morford hauled in 29 draw controls, collected 21 ground balls and forced 10 opponent turnovers. Previously, she was named the SCIAC Athlete of the Week after scoring seven goals and distributing two assists in her team's 15-11 win over Occidental College on April 19.
Then, in mid-May, Morford became one of four Redlands players to receive All-West Region honors from the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association. Morford and Egan both landed on the first team again.
At the end of her sophomore campaign, Morford collected her first all-Region honor. In 17 games played, she tallied a team-high 52 goals to go along with 16 assists for 68 points. She put the exclamation point on her offensive prowess by resetting the school record with a 35-game stretch of scoring at least one goal every game that dates back to February of 2016. Morford also used her tenacity and speed to corral 39 ground balls and 49 draw controls, while her stifling defense caused 27 opponent turnovers as well.
