LEXINGTON, Va. -- Washington and Lee senior attacker Leslie Bogart (Wilton, Conn./Wilton), senior defender Sarah Janowitz (Bel Air, Md./C. Milton Wright) and junior goalkeeper Joanna Perini (Huntington, N.Y./Huntington) were among 127 players named to the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) Academic Honor Roll. Additionally, W&L was among 32 squads recognized for achieving a team GPA of 3.00 or greater.

Bogart was an English major who graduated with a 3.515 grade-point average. She finished the 2003 season second on the team in scoring with 66 points on 23 goals and 43 assists en route to earning Second Team All-ODAC accolades. Bogart finished her career tied for the W&L scoring record with 230 points on and 94 goals and a school-record 136 assists.

Janowitz, also an English major, graduated with a 3.349 GPA. The 2003 ODAC Player of the Year, she garnered First Team All-South and Second Team All-America honors from the IWLCA this season. Janowitz tallied one assist and was the spearhead of a W&L defense which allowed an average of just 6.83 goals per game.

Perini is a psychology and public policy major who carries a 3.459 GPA. A First Team All-ODAC and IWLCA Second Team All-South selection in 2003, she posted a 6.90 goals-against average and a .541 save percentage.
