Castleton junior attack Amanda Flodstrom has been named the North Atlantic Conference (NAC) Women's Lacrosse Player of the Year in a vote of the league's coaches. Flodstrom highlights the 2013 All-Conference honorees announced Friday.

Flodstrom led the conference with 32 points and 22 goals this season, while her ten assists ranked her second in conference play. Flodstrom makes her second-straight appearance as an All-Conference First Team attack, where she is joined by teammate Kate Auer, Thomas College's Ceara DiBiase and Miranda Tinsman, and Colby-Sawyer's Ashley Reis.

Another of Flodstrom's teammates, Cori Healy, has been honored as the league's top defender. Healy led the Castleton defense which ranked first in goals against (28) and caused turnovers (78). Joining Healy on the All-Conference First Team defensive unit is Jillian Lambert of Thomas and New England College's Morgan Abbott.

Ayla Allen, from the University of Maine at Farmington, was voted the conference's Rookie of the Year. Allen ranked second in the league with 30 points and 21 goals, while ranking third with nine assists. She also was among the league leaders in ground balls (31), draw controls (25) and caused turnovers (15). Allen highlights the All-Conference First Team midfielders, which include Green Mountain's Johanna Douglas, Laurel Bauer of Colby-Sawyer and Brittany Premo from Thomas.

NEC's Rebecca Harvey rounds out the All-Conference First Team in goal for the second-straight season.

Thomas College Head Coach Lauren Bickford earned Coach of the Year honors leading the Terriers to a 5-1 mark in conference play, three-win improvement from a season ago.

University of Maine at Farmington was honored with the Team Sportsmanship Award.
