PRINCETON, N.J. (5/22/12) - The Princeton women's lacrosse team handed out its annual awards, celebrated its seniors and announced captains for next season at the team's annual banquet on May 8.
Senior Lindsey deButts was presented with The Emily Goodfellow Award.

Established in 1991 by Mr. & Mrs. Thorp V. D. Goodfellow ’41, parents of Emily C. Goodfellow ’76, the only Princeton athlete ever to earn 12 varsity letters. deButts is a three-time first-team All-Ivy League and two-time first-team all-region selection. This season she was on the Tewaaraton Trophy Watch List, while earning pre-season All-America honors. She has earned five All-America honors by four organizations in her career thus far.
The Connie McCallister Award was presented to seniors Maggie Hines and Barb Previ. It is awarded annually to that player who, in the image of Connie McCallister, gives all of herself to the program through participation, effort, selfless dedication, enthusiasm and heart. This award is given in memory of Connie McCallister, loyal supporter and ardent fan of Princeton women’s lacrosse, by the teammates and friends of her daughter, Brent McCallister ’98.
Honored at the banquet were seniors deButts, Hines, Previ, Cathy Bachur and Cassie Pyle.
