Katelyn Honeyford Named Preseason All-American
Feb. 19, 2008
WASHINGTON, DC - George Washington senior women's lacrosse player Katelyn Honeyford was named a preseason third team All-American by Inside Lacrosse Magazine on Tuesday.
Honeyford became the first GW women's lacrosse player to earn IWLCA All-Region recognition a year ago after leading the Colonials to the six-year program's first-ever Atlantic 10 Championship final.
The first-team All-Conference selection led the Colonials with 37 ground balls and 28 caused turnovers despite missing the final four games of the regular season. Honeyford also scored a single-season career-high 22 points on 17 goals and five assists.
Honeyford was joined by Richmond's Mandy Friend (second team) and Temple's Hilary Richards (third team) as Atlantic 10 players chosen to Inside Lacrosse Magazine's preseason All-America teams.
GW begins the 2008 season by hosting 10th-ranked Georgetown at Mount Vernon Field Wednesday at 3:30 pm.
