HANOVER, N.H. - For the third time this week, senior Sarah Plumb (Wellesley, Mass.) of the Dartmouth women's lacrosse team was named a 2012 First Team All-American. The most recent honor came from the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) and was announced Sunday night to coincide with the national championship game.
The Big Green's senior midfielder and co-captain was honored as one of 48 student-athletes from across the nation recognized with a spot on the organization's three All-American teams as voted on by head coaches from Division I teams.
Plumb's most recent national recognition came after she led her team with 49 points on 37 goals and 12 assists in 2012. She set new career (156) and single-season (82) records for both Dartmouth and the Ivy League on draw controls this year and was a key contributor to the Big Green as they earned their second straight NCAA Tournament berth.
The 2012 Ivy League Player of the Year, Plumb helped lead Dartmouth to its first conference tournament championship in early May with wins over Cornell and top-seeded Penn. She was also a unanimous All-Ivy First-Team selection and was named to the IWLCA All-Northeast Region First Team last week prior to Sunday night's announcement.
Plumb becomes the first Dartmouth player to earn a sport on the prestigious First Team since both Lizzy Cuneo and Kristen Zimmer were honored in 2006 when the Big Green finished as the national runners-up.
Earlier this week, Plumb was also recognized by both WomensLax.com and SynapseSports.com as a 2012 First Team All-American.
