Despite the loss of this year's varsity sports season, Sophie Student '20 was recently named a Senior High School Lacrosse All-American for 2020.
On August 4, Corrigan Sports Enterprises (CSE), in conjunction with Inside Lacrosse, announced the Under Armour girls' lacrosse Senior All-Americans selected and honored for the class of 2020. Each player named to the class of 2020 will receive their game jersey from Under Armour to commemorate their selection as an All-American. Sadly, the 2020 Senior All-America Game scheduled for Aug. 8 in Baltimore, Md., was cancelled due to COVID-19.
"While we have had to cancel the 2020 Senior All-America Lacrosse game out of concern for the wellness and overall protection of all event participants, spectators and staff, this is only a momentary pause for these graduating seniors before they become stars in college," Lee Corrigan, president of CSE said. "With support from great partners like Under Armour and Inside Lacrosse, we will maintain our passion for lacrosse as we put together plans for outstanding events for years to come."
Student, a day student from Hopkinton, Mass., was a two-time All-ISL selection at St. Mark's, and she was the Independent School League girls' lacrosse Most Valuable Player in 2019 while leading the Lions in scoring with 82 points. She holds the School's season and career record for most successful draws (the girls' lacrosse equivalent of a face-off).
Student will be playing lacrosse at Virginia Tech next year.
Congratulations, Sophie, on this tremendous athletic honor!
