Lacrosse Quartet Earns A-10 Postseason Honors
Oler earns Second Team and All-Rookie accolades
NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – The George Washington lacrosse team garnered five Atlantic 10 postseason honors, the league announced on Wednesday. Freshman Jenna Oler was named to the All-Conference Second Team and All-Rookie Team, sophomore Katie Quinn landed on the All-Conference Second Team, freshman Ioanna Mantzouratos earned All-Rookie Team accolades, and senior Camaryn Kerns was recognized on the All-Academic Team.
Oler earns Second Team and All-Rookie Team honors after a standout freshman campaign where she made a GW program-record 207 saves between the pipes. The Columbia, Maryland, native saw action in all 17 contests, made 13 starts, tallied 46 ground balls, caused six turnovers, and boasted an 11.50 goals against average (GAA) and an impressive .551 save percentage, a mark that ranks first in GW history. In addition, the freshman netminder tops the A-10 and ranks second nationally with her 207 saves and 12.18 saves per game. Oler was named A-10 Defensive Player of the Week after making a then-season-high 17 saves in the crease in GW’s 9-7 victory at Robert Morris and later broke the single-game saves record on April 15 with 25 stops against top-ranked Massachusetts.
Starting in all 17 contests of her sophomore season, Quinn earns Second Team honors after tallying a personal-best 42 points on 28 goals and 14 assists. The mainstay at midfield nearly tripled her point production from her rookie season (7g, 6a), while adding 13 ground balls, 30 draw controls, and 11 caused turnovers. The Villanova, Pennsylvania, native, registered multiple goals in 10 games and found the back of the net a career-high four times at VCU on April 13.
Mantzouratos made an immediate impact on the Colonials’ offensive effort and finished the season ranked first on the squad with 18 assists, a mark that ranks tied-for-first on GW’s freshman records list, and fourth with 41 points and 23 goals. Starting all 16 contests in which she saw action, the attacker registered three goals and two assists in her collegiate debut at ECU (Feb. 10) and tallied a career-high four goals and two assists against La Salle (April 6).
Kerns grabs her first Atlantic 10 postseason honor after capping her collegiate career on a high note both on and off the field. The senior finished the season ranked second on the team with a career-high 40 goals and registered multiple tallies in 14 of 17 contests, including eight hat tricks. Off the field, the accountancy major excelled in the classroom with a 3.73 GPA. A member of the A-10 Commissioner’s Honor Roll and GW Athletics Academic Dean’s List throughout her career as well as a member of the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLC) Division I Academic Honor Squad, Kerns has plans to join the firm of Pricewaterhouse Coopers after graduation.
