HANOVER, N.H. – Dartmouth junior Kathryn Giroux was named a 2018 Inside Lacrosse Media All-American Friday morning.
A voting committee of 20 media members who cover the sport selected the individual players honored from across Division I, including the Big Green’s junior midfielder.
Earlier this spring, Giroux was tabbed as an All-Ivy League Second Team selection for the second straight year. The New Jersey native was once again a force on the draw control, finishing the season with 133, breaking her own single-season program record of 108 set last spring.
Giroux had five games of 10 or more draws this season, including the final three of the year. Her 19 draws at Jacksonville on Mar. 21 was an Ivy League record and the most by any player in collegiate lacrosse in 2018. She wasn’t done dominating games either as she also had 17 against UMass Lowell and 16 against Penn in the Ivy League Tournament semifinals, finishing her season with the top-three single-game totals of anyone in the nation.
That single-game total against the Quakers is not only a conference postseason record, but also was better than any team had ever managed to boast collectively in a tournament game as the previous team mark was 15.
For her career, Giroux now has 258 draw controls, far and away the most by any individual in Dartmouth history and second all-time in the Ivy League. She is the only player in the conference’s history with multiple seasons of 100-plus draw controls as she seems poised to set a new conference standard as a senior next spring.
