All-Region honor for PSU Womens Lacrosse player
PLYMOUTH, N.H. – The top player on the 2010 Plymouth State University women's lacrosse team has been honored with a prestigious regional honor for her outstanding season for the Panthers.
Senior Kalie Judd (Peabody, Mass./Veterans Memorial) has been named a Pilgrim Region Second Team All-Star by the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA). Judd (right) is an All-Region selection after receiving her third straight All-Little East Conference First Team honor earlier this month.
A 5’7” midfielder, Judd capped an outstanding three-year career for the Panthers this season. She was a dominating player in the midfield, leading the Little East with 6.0 draw controls and 4.3 ground balls per game and ranking fourth with 1.9 caused turnovers. She was also a terrific offensive player, finishing as the team leader with 43 goals, 25 assists and 68 points and ranking among the LEC leaders in all three categories. Judd is also ranked fourth in the NCAA Division III in draw controls and 23rd in ground balls.
Judd finished her career 11th on PSU’s all-time scoring list with 103 goals and 40 assists. She became just the 14th player in the program’s history to score at least 100 goals. Judd was one of three LEC players to receive All-Region honors, joining Taylor MacDonald of Eastern Connecticut and Jessica Knight of Southern Maine.
Also the starting point guard on Plymouth State’s women’s basketball team, Judd is the fourth Panther women’s lacrosse player to earn All-Region honors in the past decade. Kelsey MacDonald and Nicole Evans were Second Team selections in 2006 and Katie Sheridan was a three-time All-Region choice from 2002-04.
The Panthers finished the 2010 campaign with a 10-6 record under first-year head coach Kristin Blanchette. PSU tied for first in the LEC regular season race and was defeated in the semifinals of both the Little East and ECAC New England Tournaments.
