Springfield, Mass. - May 19, 2017 - Springfield College's Shelby Corsano (Bourne, Mass.) of the women's lacrosse program was named an Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) All-American, announced on Friday afternoon.
Corsano, a Physical Therapy major at Springfield College, was the lone representative from the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC), and one of 12 student-athletes from New England to earn All-America recognition. This marks the first All-American for Springfield College women's lacrosse in Division III program history, and first student-athlete to earn All-America honors since Senta Augsberger and Amy Lawrence were recognized in 1995.
It was an impressive season for the junior attacker, as Corsano led the Pride to a NEWMAC Regular-Season title this year, as she produced 60 points, including 49 goals and 11 assists. Corsano also secured 53 draw controls, picked up 25 ground balls and caused 12 turnovers.
The 2017 NEWMAC Women's Lacrosse Athlete of the Year, Corsano also earned IWLCA Berkshire All-Region honors, as well as Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division III All-New England honors earlier this year.
The IWLCA will honor the National All-Americans at the IWLCA All-American Banquet on Saturday June 3, 2017 at the Hunt Valley Inn in Hunt Valley, Md.
