OSWEGO — Teresa Shattuck of the Oswego State women’s lacrosse team closed the 2019 season as the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s (NCAA) Division III statistical champion for assists per game.
During her senior year, Shattuck averaged four assists per game, which is nearly a quarter of a point higher than the next closest individual (Lois Ray, George Fox University, 3.76).
Shattuck was able to be the best assist distributor per game out of an NCAA division that features 283 teams. Her 64 total assists in 2019 were also a top-5 statistic in Division III, ranking Shattuck fourth in the country. It was also the record for most assists in a single-season by a Laker women’s lacrosse player.
The Syracuse native finished her career as the most prolific point scorer in Laker program history, setting the career mark with 333 points over four years. Shattuck is one of just two players in Oswego State’s women's lacrosse history to have more than 100 goals and 100 assists in a career, joining her sister Erannan Shattuck (Class of 2016) on that short list. Teresa is the only player to have more than 200 assists in a career for the Lakers.
Shattuck owns the top three spots on the single-season assists list for Oswego State and possesses six places of the top-10 for single-game assists, including the top four spots.
One of the most decorated careers in Laker history, Shattuck was a 2018 Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) All-America third-team member, a four-time All-Empire Region selection, a four-time All-SUNYAC performer – including three first team nods – and the league’s 2016 rookie of the year.
