Cheney and Women’s Lacrosse Earn IWLCA Academic Squad Honors

July 26, 2017

WASHINGTON - The Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) has recognized Georgetown as one of 308 schools to earn academic squad honors across all divisions for the 2017 season. Additionally, junior attacker Sarah Cheney (Loudonville, N.Y./Shaker) was among 402 student-athletes named to the IWLCA Academic Honor Roll.

The IWLCA honored 402 student-athletes from 102 different institutions with inclusion in the 2017 IWLCA Division I Academic Honor Roll. All student-athletes were nominated by their schools and have achieved at least junior status academically and had a cumulative academic GPA of 3.50 or greater.

Cheney appeared in 11 games with five starts this past season. She had three goals and one assist for four points on the year to go along with one ground ball and one caused turnover. The human science major was also a team captain and the winner of the 2017 Kim Simons Coaches' Award for the player who best demonstrates the qualities of coachability, positive attitude and leadership.

She is the first Georgetown honoree since the 2015 season.

For academic squad honors, the Hoyas were included after posting a team GPA over 3.0, which met the criteria for the award. Georgetown was among 10 schools from the BIG EAST to receive the award.

The Blue & Gray finished the 2017 season with a record of 9-9 and advanced to the BIG EAST Semifinal. Georgetown will lose four seniors to graduation, but returns its top six scorers in 2018.
