Dec. 14 – Kyle Ohlmiller – Best Comeback story

Attacker Kylie Ohlmiller missed the 2022 AU Pro Lacrosse season due to an injury she sustained while representing Team USA in the World Lacrosse Women’s World Championship. Ohlmiller tore her ACL in the semifinal game against Australia but returned to the field in 2023.

Dec. 22 – Taylor Moreno & Sam Apuzzo – Best Women’s Player

2023 Champion Taylor Moreno and second-place medalist Sam Apuzzo both made the list for Best Women’s Player of the Year.
