The women's lacrosse team at Wells played a very competitive schedule in 2014 that included Freedom Conference runner-up Wilkes and other non-conference foes such as Alfred and Hilbert. Head Coach Kylie Hrehor, in her second season with the program, piloted the Express to three conference victories in which her team scored a combined 41 goals in league wins.

ROOKIE OF THE YEAR
- THIRD TEAM: Freshman Shianne Stokes (Mays Landing, N.J.) earned Third Team All-Conference honors from the North Eastern Athletic Conference following the season. In doing so, she became the first Wells freshman since Courtney Grosser '14 in 2011 to earn All-Conference recognition. Appearing in all 13 games for the Express, she ranked third in point scoring after tallying 17 goals and six assists for 23 total points (17-6=23). Additionally, Stokes hauled in 38 ground balls and reeled in 33 draw controls, ranking second on the team in both categories.
- THE COMEBACK KIDS: Trailing 12-1 with 20:08 left in regulation, the Express almost pulled off a comeback for the ages against Cazenovia on Apr. 6 by scoring eight goals in 18:17. However, the Express ultimately fell to their league rivals by a 12-9 score. The Wildcats went onto play in the NEAC semifinals, ultimately losing to the eventual champions from Keuka College.
- EXTRA LACROSSE: Wells overcame a four goal deficit on Apr. 18 against Penn St.-Abington, forcing an overtime period that the Express went on to lose 15-14. With only 2:32 left in regulation time, Wells scored four goals to tie the game at 12 aside. With only 17 ticks left on the scoreboard, sophomore Lexie Roberson (Winston-Salem, N.C.) converted a free position attempt for her first goal of the game to send both teams to overtime.
- HOME COOKING: The Express posted back-to-back wins at home on Apr. 11 and Apr. 12, defeating Lancaster Bible by a 14-4 score before setting down Wilson by a 19-8 margin. Against the Chargers on the 11th, Stokes caused seven turnovers to rank second amongst all Wells players in single-game history dating back to 2009. Versus Wilson the very next day, junior Marina Fargnoli (Apalachin, N.Y.) scored a career-high six goals to power the Express to victory.
- APPROACHING MILESTONES: Entering her senior season in 2014, Fargnoli ranks 14th all-time in career point scoring with 71 points via 58 goals and 13 assists. In modern-day NCAA Division III program history (1986-present), Fargnoli ranks 11th and would need only one point to crack the top-10 list.
