The IWLCA honored 128 student-athletes in Division I with a selection on one of the four All-Region teams.

DePompeo has established a Navy season record with her NCAA-leading 120 points and 6.32 points per game average. Her 65 assists are second in the nation and are the sixth-best single-season total in NCAA history. She also has scored 55 goals.
DePompeo is the NCAA's active career leader in both points (329) and assists, while her 161 career helpers are the fourth-most in NCAA history.
The co-captain was named the Patriot League Offensive Player of the Year and earned a spot on the all-league first team for the third-straight year. She is also one of 25 Tewaaraton Award nominees and was the Patriot League Tournament MVP.
DePompeo was an All-South Region Second-Team honoree in 2011 and 2012.
