Women's lacrosse players are All-Americans
Two Hamilton College women's lacrosse players have been selected to the 2009 NCAA Division III All-America Team by the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) and US Lacrosse.
Kaillie Briscoe '09 (Orangeville, Ontario/Orangeville District School) and Liz Rave '10 (Huntington, N.Y./Huntington HS) were voted to the third team. Fourteen Hamilton players have claimed 17 All-America awards in the team's history. A total of 48 athletes (three teams of 16) were honored in Division III.
Briscoe is the third Hamilton player to receive two All-America awards. She made the first team in 2008 as a junior at attack. Briscoe ranked 22nd in Division III this year with 37 assists. She scored 41 goals and ranked third in the Liberty League in points per game. She was credited with four game-winning goals. Briscoe is the team's all-time leader in goals (206), assists (134) and points (340).
Rave picked up her first All-America honor. The midfielder led Hamilton with 49 goals and ranked 10th in the league in goals per game. She finished second on the team with 53 points and won a team-high 36 draw controls.
Hamilton finished 2009 with an overall record of 16-3. The three-time defending league tournament champions advanced to the semifinals of the NCAA tournament. The Continentals won the NCAA championship in 2008.
