Women's Lacrosse - Thu, May 11, 2017

Georgetown College women's lacrosse's Merrisa Heraldson, Avery Blackmon, Samantha Dearing and Rachel Kidwell received NAIA All-America status as announced following the conclusion of the 2017 NAIA National Invitational Championship.

Heraldson, a three-time All-American, was named first-team. She graduates with 200 points for her three seasons as a Tiger and holds two in-game records – most goals (12) and most points (12).

Blackmon, a two-time first-team All-American, is Georgetown's first consensus All-American. This means all voting parties agreed she was on this list. Blackmon currently has 106 goals, 60 assists and 209 draw controls in two seasons. She holds three in-game records – draw controls (20), assists (5) and turnover plus/minus (9).

Kidwell for the second straight season earns All-American status, earning second-team this year. The sophomore goalie has 200 saves in her career, reaching the mark with her final save in the NAIA national tournament quarterfinal game against Indiana Tech. Her 46.2 save percentage her freshman season is a school season record.

Samantha Dearing earned her first All-American. The junior is a four-time all-conference honoree and in her final season for the Tigers is receiving recognition on the national stage for her defensive abilities. Dearing collected 102 ground balls in her three seasons with nine goals and one assist.

"It's pretty impressive to consistently have four or more All-Americans every year," said GC coach Brandon Davis. "These young ladies work very hard and to have other coaches see that and recognize that is exciting."
