Georgetown College women's lacrosse continues to reap the rewards of hardwork and dedication. Following the National Women's Lacrosse League National Tournament championship game, a 12-member all-tournament team was announced.

The No. 3 Tigers represented one-sixth of that team with Bea Cameron and Merrisa Heraldson earning the honor.

"It's an honor, especially knowing that these awards are secondary to our players," said GC coach Brandon Davis. "Every one of my student-athletes puts team first and that is why we've accomplished what we have."

Georgetown College women's lacrosse finished up its inaugural season with a bang. The No. 3 Tigers (12-4) quickly formed a competitive rival with defending national champion Robert Morris University – Chicago (13-6). In the rubber match between the two programs for National Women's Lacrosse League National Tournament third place, it was Georgetown's late rally that sealed the deal.

Merrisa Heraldson, held in check most of the day, rotated off draw control and caught the start from Laura Cuseo. The right hand side opened up and with 3.2 seconds remaining one of the top scorers in the nation gave GC the 14-13 win.

"We made some adjustments as our offense was a bit stagnant in the second half," said Tiger coach Brandon Davis. "As we went to overtime we had Laura start taking draws and after Robert Morris tied it the field just opened right for Merrisa to do the rest."
