The Westminster, Md., native garnered ALC and WomensLax.com recognition for the first time in her career. The sophomore led Penn State with four second-half goals, including three in a 26-second span, during the team's pivotal conference victory.

In 2014, Cyr ranks fourth in the conference in caused turnovers per game (1.27), fifth in goals per game (2.47), sixth in goals (37), eighth in points per game (2.87) and 10th in points (43). The standout paces the Nittany Lions with 43 points and 37 goals and ranks second in caused turnovers (19) and third in draw controls (28).
