WASHINGTON - Junior Sophia Thomas (Lutherville, Md./Maryvale Prep) and senior Kelly Barnes (St. David's, Pa./Radnor) were both named All-America by the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches' Association on Sunday. The pair were two of 48 Division I student-athletes recognized by the organization.
Thomas was a second team honoree marking her second All-America honor and her first-career nod to the second team. Last week, she was named First Team All-South Region by the IWLCA.
This season, Thomas earned her second All-BIG EAST First Team award and second all-region honor. She led the squad in scoring with a team-best 38 goals along with eight assists for 46 points. The midfielder had three game winning goals and hit three free position shots. Thomas was named a Tewaaraton Trophy nominee, the BIG EAST Offensive Player of the Week and was named to the weekly honor roll.
Thomas was a Third Team All-America selection as a junior making her one of just 15 players in program history to earn All-America honors twice in her career.
Barnes was named Third Team All-America marking her first-career national honor. Last week, she was a First Team All-South Region selection after another solid season.
Earlier this year, Barnes was named First Team All-BIG EAST and to the BIG EAST All-Tournament Team. The two-year co-captain led the squad in ground balls with 43 and ranks third on the team in caused turnovers forcing 22. She was the leader of the defense and started all 17 games this past season for the Blue & Gray. Barnes also earned a nod to the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll in 2012.
Barnes has earned two all-region awards in her career. This year marked her third selection to the all-conference squad and the second to the first team.
Georgetown finished the season with a record of 9-8 overall and a mark of 5-3 in BIG EAST Conference play. The Hoyas lose five seniors, including Barnes, next season but return their top six scorers.
The BIG EAST Conference had 10 student-athletes represented spread out among four institutions.
