NORTH ANDOVER, Mass. – The Merrimack College women’s lacrosse program saw both team and individual accolades in the 2019 Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association Academic Honor Roll announcements Wednesday afternoon. Junior Olivia Colletti and senior Lauren Trepaney saw their names on the Academic Honor Roll list, while the program was also named to the Division II Academic Honor Roll Squad.
To become eligible for the individual honor roll list, student-athletes must be at least a junior, and hold a cumulative GPA of 3.50 or greater – to make the squad list, teams needed to hold an average of a 3.0 GPA or higher for the academic year.
Junior Olivia Colletti sees her name on the IWLCA Academic Honor Roll for the first time, becoming eligible for the accolade this year. Limited to just 10 games this season due to injury, the Health Science major netted 10 goals on 19 shots, including a season-high three goals against Southern New Hampshire.
Trepaney ends her decorated career for the Warriors on the IWLCA Academic Honor Roll list for the first time in her career. An IWLCA All Region Second-Teamer, Northeast-10 Conference Third-Teamer, and NE10 Academic All-Conference nominee, the goaltender set the all-time wins record, becoming Merrimack’s all-time leader in victories with 22. She was named NE10 Championship Most Valuable Player after stellar tournament play, and was selected to play on the IWLCA North/South Senior All-Star Game.
Additionally, the team made the Academic Honor Squad list, requiring a minimum of a 3.0 GPA.
The Warriors finished its tenure in the NE10 with its first-ever conference championship, and will look for a strong start in the Northeast Conference during the 2020 season.
