HAVERFORD, Pa. – Haverford Women's Lacrosse senior co-captain Allie Gibbons has been named to the 2019 Google Cloud Academic All-District Women's At-Large team, as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA), the organization announced on Thursday afternoon.
This award recognizes the nation's top student-athletes for their combined performance on the field and in the classroom. The at-large team considers schools that do not have their own dedicated team for a particular sport. Gibbons will now advance to the Google Cloud Academic All-America ballot. First, second, and third-team Academic All-America honorees will be announced in June.
A psychology major with a minor in neuroscience, Gibbons was recently named an Ambler Scholar Athlete, a distinction given to the 16 senior student-athletes with the top GPAs in their class at Haverford. Gibbons was also named the Centennial Conference Women's Lacrosse Scholar Athlete of the Year in 2018, and is a two-time selection to the Philadelphia Inquirer Academic All-Area team. Gibbons is also a three-time member of the Centennial Conference Academic Honor Roll and was named to the IWLCA Honor Roll after the 2018 campaign.
The Baltimore, Md. native was a first-team All-Centennial selection in 2019 as she had an impressive senior season on the attack. She started all 18 games for the Fords, logging 81 points and 69 goals, the second-most in program single-season history.She tallied multiple goals in each contest this season, and paced the Centennial in goals by a wide margin. Her 30 goals in conference games was second in conference. Gibbons also tallied 21 caused turnovers, including 11 against conference competition. Against Christopher Newport in the season opener, Gibbons set a new program record with an 11-point outing in Haverford's 21-14 win. Gibbons also matched the program's single-game goals record in that late February triumph over the Captains.
Gibbons finished the season 39th in the nation in goals scored. She leaves the program fourth in career history in points (224) and goals (178) as she joined rarefied error as one of just seven players in Haverford history to rack up 200 points. Her goals per game tally (2.62) and points per game mark (3.29) are also in the top 10 in program career history.
