WOMEN'S LACROSSE LANDS SIX ON ALL-CONFERENCE ACADEMIC TEAM; MEN'S LACROSSE ADDS TWO

HIGH POINT, N.C. - Conference Carolinas is proud to announce the 2012 Lacrosse Academic All-Conference award winners. League member institutions stress the role of "Academics and Athletics Working Together" and each sport’s Academic All-Conference award winners exemplify this continued league-wide commitment. Pfeiffer University picked up six representatives for Women’s Lacrosse and two from the Men’s.

The 2012 Conference Carolinas Lacrosse Academic All-Conference representatives have been awarded to the following junior and senior student-athletes with a cumulative grade point average of 3.25 or higher on a 4.0 scale in all work completed at their member institution that have played in a conference sponsored sport.
