ATLANTA, Ga. - As the 2019 ASUN Women's Lacrosse season kicks off on February 8th, we take a closer look at each of the seven conference teams as they prepare for the upcoming season.

The Stetson Hatters come into 2019 looking to build off a 4-13 campaign from a year ago. They look to do that with an exciting young roster that features seven freshmen and seven sophomores. One of those sophomores is attacker Riley Reagan. Reagan, a 2018 Second Team All-Conference and All-Freshmen Team member, enjoyed the best freshman season in Hatters history. She led the ASUN in assists last season with 35, which already puts her fourth all-time in program history. She also set a school record with 53 points with 18 goals. Her 53 points ranked seventh in the ASUN. Returning with Reagan, is senior Shelby Lehmann. Lehmann tallied 35 points a season ago with 26 goals and nine assists. The Hatters also return their netminder in Liza Diamond. Diamond was a Second Team All-Conference member in 2018 and a two-time Defensive Player of the Week selection. She stopped 157 shots last season, third most in single-season program history. Diamond also became the first player in Hatters history to make 150 or more saves in back-to-back season. 

Stetson boasts an exciting non-conference schedule that features programs such as Arizona State, Fresno State, Marquette, Furman and Cincinnati. The Hatters begin the season on February 10th with a home tilt against Quinnipiac. Stetson's ASUN Conference action begins on March 24th when they pay a visit to ASUN newcomer, Liberty.
