In a non-conference battle, St. Edward jumped out on Avon Lake and
never looked back.

the match and Mikey Bowden scored on a back post run 7 minutes later.

The Shoremen battled the whole evening and had a few chances to cut
the Eagles lead, but Stuart Ford came up big for St. Edward.

Lake Erie College Women's Lacrosse Named IWLCA Academic Team for Third Straight Year

PAINESVILLE, OHIO – For the third consecutive year, the Lake Erie College women's lacrosse team has been named an Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) Academic Team for the 2012 season. The IWLCA made the announcement late Monday (Aug. 20).

Each year the IWLCA has recognized schools across each NCAA division with a team GPA of 3.0 or higher. Lake Erie was one of 19 schools in Division II earning Academic Squad honors for the 2012 season.

"To be named an Academic Squad for the third consecutive year really shows how committed our student-athletes are to working hard both in the classroom and on the field," said second-year head coach Jillian Howley. "Our program has achieved this recognition every year of its existence and our goal is to continue this trend going forward."

Twelve of the 16 student-athletes posted GPA's higher than 3.0, including seven over 3.5. In each of the previous two seasons, Lake Erie has been named a Merit Squad and has posted the highest team GPA in Division II for both 2010 and 2011.

During the season, the Storm matched its single-season record win total of seven (7-10 overall) in its final season in the East Coast Conference (ECC). This year, Lake Erie will compete in the inaugural season of women's lacrosse in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC).

The IWLCA will announce its Merit Squads for 2012 at a later date. Below is a complete list of the 2012 Division II Academic Squads.
