HANOVER, N.H. - Midfielder Sarah Plumb of the Dartmouth women's lacrosse team has received yet another award from a national media outlet following her stellar play over the course of the 2012 season.
Plumb was one of 27 players from 13 Division I programs to earn All-America honors from WomensLax.com. Of those 27 players selected, the Big Green's senior co-captain was the only one from an Ivy League institution to be recognized.
Plumb earned the national recognition for an outstanding final season in Hanover, leading the team with 49 points on 37 goals and 12 points. She set new career (155) and single-season (82) records for both Dartmouth and the Ivy League on draw controls this year and was vital to the team's run to a second straight NCAA Tournament appearance.
The 2012 Ivy League Player of the Year, Plumb helped lead Dartmouth to its first conference tournament championship in early May with wins over Cornell and top-seeded Penn. She was also a unanimous All-Ivy First-Team selection and was named to the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association's (IWLCA) All-Northeast Region First Team earlier this week.
WomensLax.com honored Plumb this season when it named her the Division I Player of the Week following the Big Green's upset of No. 3 Duke with a 9-8 win sudden-victory on March 17. Plumb scored the game-winning goal less than a minute into the second overtime period, one of her three Ivy League-leading winners this past spring.
The IWLCA All-American Teams will be announced Sunday afternoon to coincide with the national championship game being held in Stony Brook, N.Y.
