The women’s lacrosse team is one of the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association’s NCAA Division I Academic Squads for 2012, the program’s sixth straight time earning the honor.

The Colonials are one of 41 programs to earn the honor, including A-10 rival Temple. To earn the award, a program must have a combined GPA of 3.0 or higher.

The women’s lacrosse team ended its 2012 season with a 10-7 record, the most wins in a season since 2007, and made its first trip to the conference tournament in three years.
