After a record-setting performance this past season, junior attacker Megan Takacs earned the MPSF Women’s Lacrosse Player of the Year honor.
On April 12, Takacs suffered a season-ending knee injury in the Bears’ 15-12 victory at Vermont. However, that did not stop Takacs from breaking one of Cal’s single-season records. She posted 53 goals for this season, surpassing the previous record of 49 that she shared with former Cal star Sarah Wheatley.
Despite missing Cal’s previous two games against No. 20 Boston College and conference foe Stanford, Takacs continues to lead the nation as the top scorer with 4.08 goals per game. She also leads the Bears with career highs in points, goals, draw controls, game-winning goals and shots.
Along with Takacs, midfielder Emily Abbood and defender Tori Harrison were named to the All-MPSF First Team. Abbood leads the team in ground balls and is second to Takacs in draw controls, while Harrison ranks third on the team in caused turnovers.
