Park) and Kitt Murphy (New York, N.Y./Saint Catherines(Va.)) have been
named to the CoSIDA College Division At-Large Academic All-District III
squad on Friday morning. The team was voted on by members of the Collegiate
Sports Information Directors of America.
Perini earned first-team honors after carrying a 3.562 grade-point average
as a Psychology and Public Policy major. She logged the majority of the
minutes in goal for the W&L women's lacrosse team, leading the Generals
to a 15-4 overall record, a 7-1 record in the ODAC, their second-straight
ODAC championship and their second-straight trip to the NCAA Division
III Tournament. The ODAC Women's Lacrosse Player and Scholar-Athlete of
the year, Perini ranked in the Top-20 nationally for goals-against average
(6.42) and Top-15 nationally in save percentage (.593).
A history major, Hagerman also earned an appointment to the first team
after claiming a 3.64 cumulative grade-point average. Playing at No. 1
singles and No. 1 doubles for the W&L women's tennis team, Hagerman
led the Generals to their 13th ODAC Championship in the last 14 years
and a fourth-place national finish in Division III. After being named
the ODAC Women's Tennis Player and Scholar-Athlete of the Year, she earned
All-America honors in both singles and doubles. On the season, she claims
a 31-5 record in singles and a 29-7 record in doubles.
Murphy rounded out W&L's Academic All-District At-Large selections
with an appointment to the second team after claiming a 3.73 cumulative
grade-point average. A midfielder for the women's lacrosse team, she was
named First-Team All-ODAC this season after notching nine goals, two assists,
23 draw controls and leading W&L with 27 caused turnovers.
The CoSIDA College Division District III At-Large team consists of athletes
from Division II and Division III schools in Virginia, North Carolina,
South Carolina, Georgia and Florida. With their selections to the all-district
First Team, Perini and Hagerman will proceed to the national ballot for
consideration for Academic All-America honors.
