Former BBA lax star Corvino named as All-American
EASTON, MASS. >> Stonehill College junior defender Cara Corvino has been named an All-American for the first time in her career with her second team selection by the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches' Association (IWLCA).
Corvino, who earlier this week collected IWLCA All-North Region honors for the second straight year, is the 57th All-American in program history and the 16th in head coach Katie Conover's nine seasons in charge of the program.
Corvino, a former Burr and Burton lacrosse player, earned All-North Region first team honors this season after being named to the third team as a sophomore. She is also a two-time All-Northeast-10 Conference selection, with first team honors this spring after collecting second team honors in 2015. Corvino was the leader of a Stonehill defense which ranks fifth in the NE-10 this season with a 9.50 team goals against average and third with 18.6 ground balls per game. She started all 18 games for the Skyhawks and leads the team and ranks eighth among NE-10 leaders with 25 caused turnovers to go with a team-high 43 ground balls (5th NE-10) and 31 draw controls. She forced a career-high five turnovers in an 8-7 win at Saint Michael's College on April 22, while collecting six ground balls and a season-high matching three draws against Southern New Hampshire University on April 19.
Corvino has started 39 of the 56 games she has played over her career at Stonehill - starting all 38 games the last two seasons. She has totaled 94 ground balls, 42 draw controls and 50 caused turnovers over her career. Corvino, who received the Matthew McDonough '99 Spirit Award at Monday night's Student-Athlete Awards Ceremony for her spirit, dedication and pride along with his honorable character and service toward the Stonehill community, has been named to the NE-10 Commissioner's Honor Roll three semesters and is a member of the Stonehill Student-Athlete Advisory Committee.
Stonehill wrapped up its 2016 season with a 9-9 record overall, including a 7-6 mark in the Northeast-10, making its 18th-straight appearance in the NE-10 Tournament. The Skyhawks are ranked 20th in the final regular season IWLCA Division II poll.
