Molly Wagner ’08
LEWISTON, Maine — Bates College’s Molly Wagner has been named a Division III Third Team All-American by the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association and US Lacrosse, the IWLCA announced Wednesday.
Wagner (Longmeadow, Mass.) becomes the Bobcats’ 13th All-American in women’s lacrosse, and the first since Molly McMahon ’99 in 1998.
Wagner has earned All-NESCAC honors in all three of her seasons at Bates, including First Team honors this year. She was also a First Team All-NESCAC selection in women’s soccer in 2005.
A team co-captain, Wagner led the Bobcats (8-7) in goals (39), points (49), ground balls (37), draw controls (35) and caused turnovers (30). She ranked third in the NESCAC in goals per game (2.60), and 50th in Division III in caused turnovers per game (2.00).
Among her better games this season were a five-goal performance against Trinity on April 1, a four-goal game in a win over Connecticut College, and a four-goal, five-ground ball game at Bowdoin on April 24.
Wagner scored her 100th career goal against Amherst on March 24, and now has 124.
The IWLCA and US Lacrosse have honored 48 student-athletes in Division III with a selection on one of the All-American teams. The IWLCA and US Lacrosse will honor the national All-Americans at an awards banquet on June 16, 2007 in King of Prussia, Pa.
