LOS ANGELES -- Bates women's lacrosse player Moriah Greenstein missed the final five games of the 2014 season with injury, but her immense productivity in the year's first 11 games have earned her Women's College All-America Lacrosse Team honors for Divisions II and III, according to the Jewish Sports Review.

Greenstein (Glenmont, N.Y.) scored two goals before she was hurt in Bates' 6-5 loss at Bowdoin on April 5. At that point she had already accumulated a then NESCAC-leading 23 goals and 25 assists, and was just an assist away from tying Bates' single-season record. Greenstein still finished tied for ninth in the conference in points, with 48, and her scoring average of 4.36 points per game remained atop the NESCAC leaders in that category throughout the season.

Bates women's lacrosse finished the season with an overall record of 8-8, highlighted by a March 15 6-3 win over defending national champion Trinity, which would go on to its third consecutive NCAA Championship Final appearance. For the first time since 1995, Bates saw two players placed on the IWLCA Division III All-America team in midfielder Wally Pierce '14 (Weston, Mass.) and goalkeeper Hannah Jeffrey '16 (Greenwich, Conn.).
