Monroe Community College's Danielle LaDuca has been named Lacrosse Magazine's preseason player of the year in NJCAA women's lacrosse, with the defending champion Tribunes also taking the top spot in LM's preseason rankings.
LaDuca's big play potential -- on offense and defense -- was evident when Monroe topped Onondaga in the 2010 NJCAA championship game. She's a rare player who'd rather come up with a big defensive stop than score a winning goal. But judged by her 37 goals and 20 assists a season ago, she's no slouch with the ball in her stick.
Onondaga, Catonsville, Anne Arundel and Nassau round out LM's preseason top five.
