McCausland and fourth ranked Salisbury University women's lacrosse team boast a 13-2 record, including 6-0 in the competitive Capital Athletic Conference. The Phoenix, Md., native has helped the Sea Gulls add to their CAC winning streak, which currently stands at 64-consecutive victories. This season, McCausland has played and started in 14 games, while she is currently seventh on the team in points with 24 (22 goals, two assists). The senior has been a tireless worker both on the field and in the classroom throughout her career, as she has been named to All-CAC second team, the 2010 NCAA tournament Most Outstanding Player, a CAC All-Academic Team performer and was inducted in the prestigious Chi Alpha Sigma Honor Society.

"Over the past three years, Aileen has spent countless hours developing and preparing herself for success," said Nein. "The culminating event was when Aileen was honored as the NCAA tournament Most Outstanding Player and her team won the national championship in 2010. To see her development and growth has been a joy to watch. The excitement in her eyes and expressions, knowing she put in the effort to become a better player and teammate, was outstanding."
