Jan. 26, 2017
Official BIG EAST Release
Shearer was an All-BIG EAST Second Team selection in 2016 after setting single-season program records for most goals (36) and draw controls (46). She scored in all but two games last season, including 13 multi-goal performances and five games of three or more scores.
Lane was a unanimous pick for preseason All-BIG EAST and is coming off a breakout season that led to an All-BIG EAST First Team selection in 2016. She finished her sophomore campaign with 33 goals and 45 draw controls – both which would have ranked as program-bests before last year.
Both Shearer and Lane nearly led the Golden Eagles to their first-ever postseason berth after tying for third place in the league standings with a 4-3 record. The duo ranked fourth and fifth in the league in goals last year, respectively, while Lane led the BIG EAST during conference play with 3.43 draw controls per contest.
Marquette, which set a program record with seven victories in 2016, kicks off the 2017 season at Valley Fields on Friday, Feb. 10, against Louisville.
