GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) – The first four-time honorees in the voting’s 16-year history are among the 18 student-athletes selected to the All-Atlantic Coast Conference Women’s Lacrosse Team for 2012, as determined by a vote of the ACC’s six head coaches. Of this year’s selections, 12 are candidates for the Tewaaraton Trophy, the sport’s highest individual honor.
Boston College midfielder Kristin Igoe, a graduate student from Franingham, Mass., and Maryland attacker Karri Ellen Johnson, a senior from Annapolis, Md., earned the acclaim for the fourth time in their careers, making ACC history.
North Carolina, which completed the ACC regular season undefeated (5-0), led all schools with five all-conference performers. Maryland had four representatives on the team, including Johnson, while Boston College had three representatives including Igoe and the All-ACC Team’s only freshmen, attacker Covie Stanwick and midfielder Mikaela Rix.
Duke had three honorees including Mollie Mackler, the lone goalie on the squad, while Virginia had two representatives, including Josie Owen, who leads the ACC in total points. Virginia Tech was represented by midfielder Jessica Nonn.
Honors for the ACC’s top player, freshman and coach will be released next month.
