May 24, 2012
CENTER VALLEY, Pa. - Four Patriot League standouts earned additional honors for their 2012 season by being named to the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) All-Region teams on Thursday.
Lafayette junior Addie Godfrey and sophomore Ana White were each selected in the Mid-Atlantic Region, while Navy junior Jasmine DePompeo was honored in the South Region and Colgate senior Courtney Miller was chosed in the Northeast Region.
Each of the four student-athletes were named to the second team in their region. All four earned first-team All-Patriot League honors in 2012, with DePompeo garnering her second straight Patriot League Offensive Player of the Year award and Miller closing her career with a Midfield Player of the Year honor.
Godfrey and White each played key roles in Lafayette's 9-8 season that marked the first winning record for the Leopards since 2002. Godfrey tied for the Patriot League lead with 59 goals and finished third with 68 points, while White led the nation with 6.65 draw controls per game while also totaling 36 goals and 20 assists. Her 113 draw controls rank second in a single season in Patriot League history, eclipsed only by 118 for Navy's Loren Generi this year.
DePompeo led the Patriot League with 92 points, totaling 45 goals and tying a single-season conference record with 47 assists. She scored at least five points in nine games this season, including Navy's NCAA Play-In and Tournament contests. DePompeo earned her second straight Patriot League Offensive Player of the Year award, and is named to the IWLCA All-Region squad for the second year in a row. DePompeo has also been honored for her work in the classroom, as she was named to her second straight Capital One Academic All-District at-large squad last week in addition to a spot on the Women's Lacrosse Academic All-Patriot League Team in April.
Miller closed out an outstanding career with a banner season to earn the Patriot League Midfield Player of the Year honor. She finished her time at Colgate eighth in Patriot League history in points (241) and goals (168), ninth in assists (73) and third in draw controls (201), becoming only the third student-athlete in the top 10 in all four categories. Miller tied for the Patriot League lead with 59 goals and added 17 assists to total 76 points, leading the conference with 4.47 points per game. She became the third women's lacrosse student-athlete to earn four first-team All-Patriot League honors in her career.
The IWLCA has honored 128 student-athletes in Division I with a selection on one of the All-Regional teams for 2012. These athletes are now eligible for inclusion on the IWLCA All-American Teams, which will be announced on May 27.
