Women's Lacrosse earns IWLCA Academic Honor Squad Recognition

SAINT LEO, Fla. -- The Saint Leo University women's lacrosse team was named a Division II Academic Honor Squad by the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA). Saint Leo was one of 49 Division II schools recognized by the IWLCA. Every institution with a team GPA of 3.0 or higher received the accolade. 

"I am very proud of our team's efforts in the classroom again this year," said head coach Lesley Graham. "They have proved that they understand the balance between athletic and academic excellence.  It is a great honor to be among the top 262 programs recognized by the IWLCA across all three divisions."

2015 marks the second year the Lions have received the IWLCA's distinction in the programs four year history. 

Additionally, seven women's lacrosse student-athletes were recognized by the D2ADA for their hard work in the classroom. The D2ADA Academic Achievement Awards honors Division II student-athletes who have completed four semesters of post-secondary academic work and have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.50. Earlier this summer, 15 women's lacrosse student-athletes were recognized as Sunshine State conference Commissioner's Honor Roll selections. To be eligible for the Spring SSC Commissioner's Honor Roll, a student-athlete must post a minimum gradepoint average of 3.20.
