In her first year playing for UW, Ava Lewis served as a midfield linchpin off the bench, scoring against UCLA and making six starts in 16 games as well. So far this year, Lewis has been a defensive mastermind in the midfield, starting 14 of 15 games so far and playing every minute in each of the last six games.
