Women's Lacrosse Players Named All-Americans
May 31, 2006
Four members of the Middlebury College women's lacrosse team were honored by the IWLCA (Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association). Senior Elizabeth Renehan (St. Davids, Pa.) earned first-team All-American honors, senior Alison Perencevich (Concord, N.H.) was named to the second-team, while senior Emily Erickson (Yarmouth, Maine) and junior Kim Walker (Ridgewood, N.J.) earned third-team honors.
Renehan is the two-time NESCAC Player of the Year as well as a three-time first-team All-NESCAC selection. The '03 NESCAC rookie of the year has earned All-American honors in each of the past two seasons. She finished the year tied for the team-lead with 46 goals to go along with her 11 assists for 57 points. Renehan led the team with 37 caused turnovers, while ranking third with 35 ground balls and 31 draw controls.
Perencevich is a first-team All-New England selection after being named to the second-team a year ago. She is a two-time All-NESCAC selection who was tied for the team-lead with 46 goals in '06. She also added four assists for 50 points and was third on the team with 35 ground balls. She had a big game in the NESCAC semifinal win over Williams, scoring five times.
Anchoring the Panther defense this season has been Erickson, who earns first-team N.E. honors after being named to the All-NESCAC first-team. A second-team All-Conference choice a year ago, Erickson helped lead the NESCAC's second-best defense this season, allowing just 8.00 goals/game. She also scooped up 29 ground balls, while causing 18 turnovers this season.
Walker is now a two-time All-Region and All-NESCAC selection as a junior. She finished the season third on the team with 35 goals, to go along with her 16 assists for 51 points on the year. Walker led the team with 57 draw controls and tied for team-best with 44 ground balls. She was second on the team with 30 caused turnovers in '06.
