Northwestern senior midfielder Gabriella Flibotte (May 10)
The key to the No. 2 Wildcats' midfield defense, Flibotte was named Most Valuable Player in the American Lacrosse Conference tournament after helping hold then-No. 2 Florida nearly 12 goals below its season scoring average in an 8-3 title-game victory. The win avenged a 22-4 loss to the Gators two weeks earlier. In tournament wins over the Gators and Penn State, she had 10 draw controls, five caused turnovers and five ground balls. Flibotte has 41 caused turnovers this season, third on the Wildcats' all-time single-season chart, as well as 51 ground balls and 51 draw controls.
