Junior is Shorewomen's First-Ever Defender to Receive All-America Honors
GRAND LAKE, Colo. — Washington College defender Madison Schutz (Bel Air, Md./John Caroll), who completed her junior year last month, has been named to the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) Division III All-America third team. Schutz is the first defender in her team's history to earn All-America honors.
Schutz was named the Centennial Conference Defensive Player of the Year and was chosen for both the All-Centennial Conference first team and IWLCA All-Metro Region first team last month. Schutz, who started all 18 of the Shorewomen's games this spring, led the Centennial Conference in caused turnovers by 15, finishing the season with 43. She was second in the conference in ground balls with 56, trailing the conference leader by only one despite playing in five fewer games. She tallied at least one ground ball and at least one caused turnover in ever game this season. She was also third on her team and 20th in the conference in draw controls with 37 and even added a goal and an assist for good measure.
Schutz is the first Shorewoman at any position to earn All-America honors since midfielder Emily Hubley '15 was named to the first team in 2014.
