Ashland University's lacrosse team took to the field for the first time this past spring.
And for the first time, the Eagle lacrosse team is one of the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) Zag Sports Academic Honor Squads.
Ashland is one of 303 schools to earn IWLCA Zag Sports Academic Honor Squad recognition in 2018-19. To qualify, a women's lacrosse team must have posted a 3.0 or higher team grade-point average for the academic year. The Eagles' team GPA for 2018-19 was 3.07.
The Eagles played their first season this spring under head coach Shaun Williamson, and was 5-11 overall and 4-8 in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference.
