IWLCA Release

GRAND LAKE, Colorado -- It was announced on Wednesday afternoon this week that the Heidelberg University women's lacrosse team earned the IWLCA Zag Sports Academic Honor Squad distinction for their effort as student-athletes during the 2018-19 academic year. The award marked the first of its kind for the third-year program.

According to the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association release, teams must have posted a 3.0 or higher team GPA for the academic year to qualify for the prestigious honor.

The Student Princes were led by seven selections to the Academic All-OAC team this spring en route to joining 311 other institutions across all divisions to earn the team recognition from the IWLCA.

Combining with their outstanding efforts in the classroom, Heidelberg also put together an 8-9 record on the field in 2019 -- their best win total in their three years of competition.
