The other Warwick players are former Lady Titans Brianna Accetturo and Emily Fox, and Bay View graduate Megan McGhie.
Former La Salle standout Lauren Lanoie scored all four goals in the win over Vermont, with goalie Kayla DiLorenzo recording the shutout. Cassie Catlow scored the other goal in the championship game and DiLorenzo notched her second straight shutout with 24 saves.
The Rams have a game Saturday at home against New Hampshire at 2 p.m. The national tournament is scheduled for March 12-16 at the University of Delaware.
