HAWK TRIO NAMED TO 2013 IWLCA ACADEMIC HONOR ROLL


PHILADELPHIA - The Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) honored 190 student-athletes from 68 different institutions with inclusion in the 2013 Academic Honor Roll. All student-athletes were nominated by their schools and have achieved at least junior status academically. Graduate student Meghan McDevitt and current seniors Brittany Hanrahan and Val Paolucci have been selected for their dedication and commitment to academic excellence. 

McDevitt, a graduate student working toward her masters degree in education to become a reading specialist, makes her second consecutive appearance on the IWLCA honor roll having also been selected in 2012. The Lancaster, Pa. native recorded a standout final season as a Hawk as she led the team with 30 goals and 21 assists for a team-best 51 points. McDevitt, who also earned Atlantic 10 and Philadelphia Inquirer All-Academic honors this past season, concludes her career as SJU's all-time leader in career games played (67) and ranks fourth in career assists (56) and points (150) and seventh in goals (94).

Hanrahan, a communications major out of Hatfield, Pa., captained the defensive unit that ranked in the nation's top ten in scoring defense for the majority of the 2013 season. Starting all 16 games in her junior campaign, Hanrahan led the Hawks in caused turnovers (17) and ranked third on the team in ground balls (26). The junior defensive standout recorded three or more ground balls in four games on the season, including eight in SJU's 16-13 win over Saint Mary's on March 22.

A finance major out of Swarthmore, Pa., Paolucci ranked third on the team in nearly all offensive categories for the Hawks, including points (37), goals (26), and assists (11). Paolucci recorded at least one goal in all but four of the Hawks' 16 games on the season and was a vital factor (1G, 2A) in Atlantic 10 wins over St. Bonaventure and La Salle. Paolucci enters her senior season with 60 career goals and 21 career assists to her name for a remarkable 81 points.
