WASHINGTON - Georgetown University women's lacrosse student-athletes Kelly Barnes (St. Davids, Pa./Radnor) and Kristen Coleman (Potomac, Md./Academy of the Holy Cross) were among 171 student-athletes to be named to the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association Academic Honor Roll on Wednesday.
The IWLCA honored 171 student-athletes from 56 different institutions with inclusion in the 2012 Academic Honor Roll. All student-athletes were nominated by their schools and have achieved at least junior status academically. Both Hoyas completed their eligibility in May. Barnes graduated from the business school and Coleman is beginning her second year in the sports industry management master's program.
Barnes was recently in the news after earning a spot on the U.S. Women's National Team as one of 11 newcomers. She was named Third Team All-America this past season marking her first-career national honor. She was also a First Team All-South Region selection, First Team All-BIG EAST and to the BIG EAST All-Tournament Team.
This past season, 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 for the Blue & Gray.
Barnes earned two all-region and one all-America award in her career. This year marked her third selection to the all-conference squad and the second to the first team.
Coleman played her final year of eligibility with the Hoyas after transferring from Fairfield University. She played in 17 games with nine starts to her credit. Coleman had 17 goals and five assists on the season for 22 total points ranking her seventh on the team. She also managed two game winners.
At Fairfield, she suffered a season-ending injury just one game in as a senior and ended her career as the Stags all-time leader in points, goals and assists after just three seasons. Coleman set the single-season record for points and goals as a freshman and assists as a sophomore. She was a three-time IWLCA All-Northeast Region Second Team performer, a two-time MAAC Offensive Player of the Year winner and a three-time First Team All-MAAC honoree.
The Hoyas will move on without Barnes or Coleman this season as the squad begins fall play on September 28.
