The junior was named Second Team All-Atlantic 10 on Wednesday.

Ilgenfritz led the NCAA Division I program with 13 assists on the year and ranked second in goals with 29 and in points with 42 from the midfield. The honor is the second time that Ilgenfritz has earned A-10 honors after being named to the All-Rookie team in 2014 as a freshman.

The 13 assists and 42 points are both career highs for Ilgenfritz. She was one goal short of tying her 30-goal mark from a season ago. Ilgenfrtiz shot .349 on the season, which is a career high, and scooped up 13 ground balls, seven draw controls and caused seven turnovers which are all career highs for the junior.

Heading into her senior season Ilgenfritz is in position to enter several top-10 lists in program history next season. She currently has 25 career assists, just three short of 10th place on the all-time list. She also is 20 points shy of reaching 102 to tie for 10th place and 23 goals short of 100, which would enter her into the top 10.

"The competition was extremely tough amongst the midfield and attack this season; so it's exciting to see Allee receive this recognition," La Salle head coach Candace Taglianetti Bossell. "We always knew that she was one of the top performers in the A-10 and I'm thrilled that she has earned this honor."

La Salle finished the season 5-11 overall and 3-6 in the Atlantic 10.
