PRINCETON, N.J. – The 2017 All-Ivy League Women's Lacrosse Teams were announced Wednesday afternoon and featured a trio of Dartmouth players.
Senior Courtney Weisse and sophomore Kathryn Giroux were both honored with spots on the All-Ivy League Second Team for their play this past spring. Sophomore Elizabeth Mastrio was also recognized with a spot on the Honorable Mention squad.
Weisse put together her best season in Hanover as a senior, scoring goals in all but two games this season. The team's most consistent and reliable player, she was the Big Green's top offensive threat and posed matchup problems for opposition defenses all season en route to leading the team in scoring with 41 points and 37 goals, both of which were career highs.
The Westfield, New Jersey, native actually scored more goals as a senior in 2017 than in her three previous seasons combined (22). Her 37 tallies this season finished the regular season as the sixth-best figure by any player in the conference. Despite the overwhelming attention paid to Giroux's draw control prowess, Weisse proved to be one of the team's best at the play and added depth when called up, recording 20-of-her-29 career draws in 2017.
Giroux was simply outstanding in the midfield in just her second season with the team. The Ivy League's new all-time leader for draw controls in a single season with 108 in the 2017 campaign, she had four games of 10 or more draws, including the 13 she had against Cornell on April 15. Those 13 against the Big Red were not only a new Dartmouth record, but also the most by any player in the history of the league in an Ivy matchup.
The Summit, New Jersey, native was counted on every game to step up and deliver on the draw, posting just the second 100-plus draw season in conference history. Giroux finished the regular season eighth in the country in total draws and sixth in per game figures (7.2). She also chipped in offensively with three multi-goal games, including a hat trick in the team's first Ivy win at Yale on April 22, while also notching six multi-point games as a sophomore.
Mastrio was named to the Honorable Mention Team for her play as a sophomore this spring. Her skill and speed led to numerous free-position attempts that resulted in 17 FPGs this year, tops in the Ivy League and most on the team by 10. In all, she connected on 63 percent of her chances from the 8-meter arc.
Overall, Mastrio was second on the team in scoring with 39 points, including 28 goals and 11 assists, all new career highs. The native of Wilbraham, Massachusetts, ended the season on a six-game goal-scoring streak, including multiple tallies in four of those outings. Additionally, Mastrio was third on the team in draw controls (20) and fourth in ground balls (20).
Olivia Hompe of Princeton was tabbed as the Attacker of the Year, while Penn's Alex Condon and Cornell's Catie Smith were named the Midfielder and Defender of the Year, respectively. Jenny Graap of Cornell was voted the league's Coach of the Year after guiding the Big Red to a share of the conference title and the top seed at this weekend's postseason tournament.
