BALTIMORE — Shenandoah University women’s lacrosse rising senior Samantha Sisson has been named to the IWLCA Academic Honor Roll in selections announced Thursday afternoon by the organization.

Sisson, a three-time All-league selection who led the Hornets to an Old Dominion Athletic Conference championship berth, was one of 662 women honored nationally and one of 382 in Division III.

The Keuka Park, N.Y. native earned a 3.94 GPA this past spring and boasts a 3.76 GPA as a pre-Athletic Training major.

She has been named Academic All-State the past two years and has earned Academic All-league honors in each of her three seasons at Shenandoah.

Sisson will enter her senior year needing just 12 goals and 15 points to become the all-time leader at SU in those two categories.
