KENOSHA, Wis. - Sydney Whitaker of Bainbridge Island has earned 2014 All-Midwest Women’s Lacrosse Conference second-team honors.

Whitaker, an attacker and a senior at Cathage College, was one of five Carthage players to win recognition by the All-West Conference. Teammate Lauren Chatham, an attacker, was named to the first team, and midfielder Madison Griffin, defender Stephanie Spencer and goalkeeper Ali Gorman were named second-team all-conference for the Lady Reds.

Whitaker finished the regular season with 52 goals, 21 assists and 24 ground balls.
