Grand Lake, CO| The St. Joseph's College women's lacrosse team has been named an Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) Zag Sports Academic Honor Squad for the 2016-17 academic year. It is the third-straight season the Golden Eagles have received the prestigious honor.
The IWLCA has named 300 schools across Division I, II, III, and NAIA as IWLCA Zag Sports Academic Honor Squads for the 2016-17 academic year. To qualify for this prestigious honor, the women's lacrosse team must have posted a 3.0 or higher team GPA for the academic year. SJC was one of two Skyline Conference teams to earn the recognition.
The Academic Honor Squad award is the latest accolade for the Golden Eagles, who saw 16 of their players named to the Skyline Conference's 2016-17 Winter/Spring Academic Honor Roll, earlier this month.
The IWLCA is a membership-led nonprofit association representing the nation's intercollegiate women's lacrosse coaches within Division I, II and III of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). The IWLCA is a 501c Non-Profit educational organization.
