Name an award and Kayla Treanor won it during her astonishingly decorated career at Syracuse. As one of the greatest female lacrosse players ever, she has a trophy case that’s stuffed to the gills.
She was first team All-America every year 2013-2016, one of only five athletes ever at SU to do that. She was an an All-ACC Tournament selection. She was an NCAA All-Tournament selection. She was a finalist three straight years for the Tewaaraton Award. She was the conference’s offensive player of the year. She was the tournament player of the year for the ACC.
In Treanor’s sophomore season, she set the SU record for most goals in a season with 79. She finished the season with 117 points, the second-highest single season total. She amazingly tallied seven goals against the No. 1 ranked Tar Heels. Against Louisville four years ago she notched her 251st career goal. That made her the all-time leading scorer in Syracuse history, and placed her 11th all-time in NCAA history.
Treanor would help lead the program to its fifth consecutive NCAA Final Four appearance. She ended up graduating with 260 career goals, finishing sixth all-time in NCAA history. She ranks fourth all-time with 393 points. She’s represented Team USA and became an immediate standout in the women’s professional lacrosse league, UWLX.
Treanor did it all during her time on the Hill, and the program will always have her name etched on enough hardware to fill up the Dome.
