  The University of Denver women’s lacrosse team was named to the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches’ Association (IWLCA) Zag Sports Academic Honor Squads for the 2016-17 academic year, as announced in a release by the IWLCA. 

The Pioneers were one of 313 schools across the Division I, II, III and NAIA, and one of 99 Division I programs to receive the honor.

To qualify, the team had to have a 3.0 or higher team GPA (on a 4.0 scale) for the academic year.  The team recorded a GPA of 3.48 in 2016-17.

DU’s recognition is its eighth-straight IWLCA Academic Award.

“The 2017 team is so deserving of being a member of the IWLCA Academic Honor Squad,” praised head women’s lacrosse coach Liza Kelly. “They put in the work on the field and in the classroom.  I am so proud of how well they represent the University of Denver as true student-athletes!”
