First Shorewoman Tabbed For Game In Four Years
GRAND LAKE, CO – Recent Washington College graduate Mollie Shipley (Denville, NJ/Morris Catholic) has been selected to play in the 2013 Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA)/DeBeer North/South Division III All-Star Game. The game will take place this Sunday at 2:00 p.m. in Radnor, PA at Edith Dixon Robb Field on the campus of Cabrini College. She will be a member of the South for the game.
Shipley, team captain this season, set the Washington College record this season for assists in a season as she chalked up 56 and added 28 goals for 84 points. Her 84 points ranked second on the team. The attacker was a two-time All-Centennial Conference honoree, including first-team honors this year. She finished her career at Washington College with 174 points on 92 goals and 82 assists, along with 100 ground balls. She is fourth all-time at Washington in career assists and eighth in all-time points.
This spring, Shipley was named the female winner of Washington College's Eldridge Eliason Award, which "is presented to the senior male student and female student who, with scholastic standing in the upper half of the class, have accomplished the most in the field of athletics."
Shipley, who graduated this past Sunday from Washington College with a B.A. in Human Development, is the first WC player to play in the game since Brittany Lambert in 2009.
