BERKELEY – California juniors Courtney Hendrickson and Lara Kruggel have been named the NorPac West Defensive and Offensive Players of the Year, the conference office announced at the league’s annual awards banquet Wednesday night.

In addition, a total of six Bears were named to the West All-Conference team, and Hendrickson was named to the conference’s All-Academic team. The West Players of the Year marks the first time since the 2005 season that the Bears took both honors in the same season (Valentina Godfrid – Offensive and Jessica Bird – Defensive).

Hendrickson had a banner season for Cal and ranks fifth in the nation with a .798 save percentage and 10th in saves per game. A three-time defensive player of the week candidate, Hendrickson ranks second in the league in saves, save percentage and third in goals against average. On three occasions this season, she set a new program standard for saves with a current mark of 18 stops coming against then-No. 3 North Carolina.

Kruggel led Cal with seven goals and 15 points despite missing five games this season. An offensive player of the week selection, Kruggel tallied a pair of game-winners and registered three goals in conference play.

All-Conference selections were Hendrickson, Kruggel, Jordan O’Reilly, Allie Swartz, Shannon Elmitt and Clara Goni.
