LYNCHBURG – Graduating senior Ashley Cross ’14 headlines two Shenandoah University women’s lacrosse players earning All-State honors in selections announced Wednesday afternoon by the Virginia State Sports Information Directors Association.

Cross, who was previously named first team All-ODAC as well as second team All-Chesapeake Region, was picked to the VaSID first team at goalkeeper.

Her classmate, Samantha Sisson ’14, caps her career with a second team accolade at midfield.

Like Cross, Sisson was a first team All-ODAC honoree this season. The leading scorer in program history, she was named first team All-league in each of her four seasons.

Cross, the all-time saves and wins leader at SU, was also a four-time All-league selection. She earned first team All-USA South accolades in 2012 and second team honors from the USA South in 2011 and the ODAC in 2013.
