She is ranked among the career and season all-time leaders in draw controls. She ranks among the career leaders in points (120), goals (98) and caused turnovers (68) as well as sitting at seventh on the all-time list in draw controls (135). Freedman is also among some of Georgetown's best in a season in both draw controls (46, 47) and caused turnovers (27).
This marks Devine's first all-region award, she was a First Team All-BIG EAST honoree and unanimous selection after starting in all 20 games this season. She has two goals for the year and is leading the squad in caused turnovers and ground balls with 39 and 33, respectively. Devine is third in draw controls pulling in 41.
