Women's lacrosse named IWLCA Academic Honor Squad

Lynchburg women's lacrosse players celebrate a win on the field.

Grand Lake, Colo. -- University of Lynchburg's women's lacrosse program earned the title of Zag Sports Division III Academic Honor Squad from the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association, the professional organization announced Monday afternoon.

Additionally, three Hornets -- junior midfielder Hannah Creasey (Virginia Beach, Va.), senior midfielder Dorrie MacGregor (Centreville, Md.), and junior attackman Kelsey Nock (Salisbury, Md.) -- were among the 639 student-athletes from 189 institutions who merited spots on the organization's Zag Sports Division III Academic Honor Roll, meaning that each carried a cumulative GPA of at least 3.5 and at least junior status in the classroom.

Lynchburg's team worked to a 3.254 GPA in the 2017-18 academic year, well above the 3.0 team threshold required to be named an academic honor squad. A total of 339 teams made the list between NCAA Divisions I, II, and III and the NAIA.

The Lynchburg women's lacrosse team carried a 9-8 record on the field in the 2018 season, its fourth-straight winning campaign, and was 6-2 in Old Dominion Athletic Conference play. The Hornets reached the ODAC tournament semifinals for the fourth consecutive time.
