HANOVER, N.H. – It was announced Tuesday afternoon that Dartmouth senior Kathryn Giroux had been named a member of the Inside Lacrosse Women’s All-America Third Team.
The list of the nation’s best players was compiled by the publication via a vote of media members and the contributors.
Giroux was named to the third team as a midfielder and draw specialist for the 2019 season, a year after earning honorable mention recognition as a junior last spring.
The Summit, New Jersey, native earned All-America honors thanks to an outstanding senior season in Hanover. She finished her collegiate career as the top draw specialist ever to come through not only Dartmouth, but the entire gamut of Ancient Eight programs.
Her 160 draws this spring are a new single-season benchmark for an Ivy player, while her career total of 418 is also the most in conference history. A unanimous All-Ivy League First Team selection in 2019, Giroux is considered one of the top midfielders in one of the top lacrosse conferences.
Giroux is the only player in Ivy history with three seasons of 100 or more draw controls. The previous Dartmouth career mark for draw controls before Giroux arrived was 155, a figure she would’ve passed with just this season’s record-breaking performance.
The team captain’s final year in Hanover was stellar on the field and she has enjoyed several accolades for it. In addition to her All-Ivy honors, Giroux was named to the IWLCA All-Northeast Region First Team and now this All-America honor.
