TAFFE NAMED TO A PAIR OF WOMEN'S LACROSSE ALL-AMERICA TEAMS
Senior Attacker Named to a Second Team and Third Team


Senior Attacker Kelly Taffe

LEXINGTON, Va. -- Washington and Lee senior attacker Kelly Taffe (Charlottesville, Va./Albemarle) has been named to the Inside Lacrosse and womenslacrosse.com All-America teams which were announced on Tuesday afternoon. She garnered Second Team honors through Inside Lacrosse and Third Team recognition by womenslacrosse.com.

Taffe joins senior goalie Joanna Perini (Huntington, N.Y./Huntington), who was named to the IWLCA/US Lacrosse All-America Third Team earlier in the day. Their selections mark the fourth straight year that W&L has claimed an All-America selection.

Taffe earned First Team All-ODAC and First Team All-South Atlantic Region honors in 2004 after leading the Generals in scoring with 70 points on 56 goals and 14 assists. A three-time All-ODAC selection, she graduates as W&L's career leader in goals scored (182) and points (238).

Washington and Lee tied the school record for wins in a season after notching a 15-4 overall mark and finishing 7-1 in the ODAC. The Generals won the ODAC title and advanced to the NCAA Division III Tournament for the second-straight season before falling to Gettysburg, 13-8, in the second-round.
