Women's lacrosse players are all-region
Five Hamilton College women's lacrosse players were honored by the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association on May 20 when the organization selected its 2010 Division III all-region teams.
Sarah Bray '11 (Rockville, Md./Connelly School of the Holy Child), Liz Rave '10 (Huntington, N.Y./Huntington HS) and Lauren Sokol '12 (Colts Neck, N.J./Peddie School) were placed on the Empire Region's first team. Anne Graveley '11 (Queensbury, N.Y./Queensbury HS) and Kate Fowler '10 (Branford, Conn./Wilton HS) made the second team.
Bray was on the second team as a rookie in 2008. She set a team record with 45 assists this year and leads the team with 73 points. She is ranked 12th in NCAA Division III in total assists and is 22nd in assists per game. She has 28 goals, 66 ground balls, 36 draw controls and 36 caused turnovers.
