Five Maryland players, including reigning Tewaaraton Award winner Katie Schwarzmann, highlight the All-Atlantic Coast Conference women's lacrosse team announced Wednesday. The 20-player team is voted on by the conference's six head coaches.
Schwarzmann, a Century graduate, is only the third player in league history to be named All-ACC four times, following Maryland's Karri Ellen Johnson (Broadneck) and Boston College's Kristin Igoe.
Seven other players were recognized for a second straight time: Maryland's Alex Aust and Iliana Sanza (St. Paul's), Boston College's Covie Stanwick (Notre Dame Prep) and Mikaela Rix and North Carolina's Abbey Friend, Kara Cannizzaro and Sloane Serpe.
Maryland's Brooke Griffin (South River) and Taylor Cummings (McDonogh), one of two freshmen selected, were also honored. Duke's Taylor Virden (McDonogh) is the only other Baltimore-area player on the team.
Individual awards, including players of the year and coach of the year, will be announced following the ACC Championship which gets underway Thursday in Chapel Hill, N.C.
