NEW YORK – The University of Denver women’s lacrosse team earned several academic honors from the Big East Conference this week, as the program was recognized with the Team Academic Excellence Award and had 32 players named to the All-Academic Team.
The Pioneers earned the conference’s Team Academic Excellence Award for the second consecutive season after recording the highest grade-point average among all women’s lacrosse programs in the Big East, posting a 3.638 GPA.

The 32 DU players of the All-Academic Team included graduate students Gracie DeRose, Kayla DeRose and Trinity McPherson and undergraduates Lauren Black, Emelia Bohi, Charlotte Boote, Addy Caulk, Caroline Colimore, Ella Colimore, Sydney Collignon, Ellie Curry, Ryan Dineen, Mollie Estepp, Carly Frohnapfel, Maggie Gately, Julia Gilbert, Landry Grover, Abby Jenkins, Sloane Kipp, Megan Klingenberg, Lila Knott, Sophia LaBanca, Victoria Macres, Bryn McCaughey, Annie McGuire, Megan Myers, Anna Palmisano, Lauryn Repp, Sam Thacker, Ava Welty, Lindsey Wilmot and Raegan Wilson.
