More Honors for F&M Seniors
The Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) and named Franklin & Marshall seniors Paulette Cutruzzula, Blake Hargest, and Lidia Sanza All-Americans on Wednesday. The same trio earned the honor earlier this week from WomensLacrosse.com. Hargest and Sanza earned First Team honors, while Cutruzzula was named to the Second Team.
The IWLCA honored 48 student-athletes in Division III with a selection on one of the All-American teams for 2010. The IWLCA will honor the National All-Americans at the IWLCA All-American banquet on June 12, 2010 at the Crowne Plaza Valley Forge in King of Prussia, Pa.
Hargest is earning the fourth All-America honor of her career and making her second appearance on a First Team this season. She was an IWLCA Second Team selection in the wake of the 2009 NCAA Division III National Championship. Hargest scored 54 goals and assisted on 38 more for a career-high 92 points in 2010. She graduates as the Diplomats' and Centennial Conference's leading point getter with 341 in her career.
The First Team selection for Sanza marks the second time in her career that she has been recognized by the IWLCA. It is her first selection to the IWLCA First Team, and her fifth All-American honor overall. She allowed 6.39 goals per 60 minutes and turned away 52.5 percent of the shots she faced in 2010. Sanza scored a goal on the only shot of her career during the shut out of Bryn Mawr.
Sanza and Second Team choice, Cutruzzula, held down the nation's second-ranked defense, limiting the opposition to 6.22 goals per game. The pair's unit shut out two opponents in 2010, the first time an F&M team has blanked two opponents in a single season. The shut out of Ursinus in the Centennial semifinals was the first in the league tournament's history.
Cutruzzula caused 16 turnovers and recorded 25 ground balls for the Diplomats. She also gained possession on a dozen draws. The All-America honor is the second of her career. Both honors were earned this year.
The Diplomats closed the season at 16-4 reaching the NCAA Division III Championship weekend for the fourth time in as many years. F&M fell in the semifinals, marking the first time in any of the aforementioned seniors' careers that the NCAA Championship game was decided without them. The Diplomats' senior class recorded a career record of 77-7, and won the NCAA Championship in both 2007 and 2009
