BRUNSWICK, Maine – Four members of the Bowdoin College women's lacrosse team have been recognized as All-Americans by the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association on Monday. 

Sophomores Eliza Denious (Wilton, Conn.) and Katie Miller (Rye, N.Y.) were named First Team All-American selections while junior Kara Finnerty (Hopkinton, Mass.) was selected as Second Team and junior Caroline Maxwell (Boxborough, Mass.) was named Third Team. Bowdoin's four All-Americans is the most for the program in a single season since 2013 and it's the first time that Bowdoin has had two First Team selections since 2005 (Colleen McDonald, Kendall Cox).

Eliza Denious enjoyed another fantastic campaign, ranking among the team leaders in goals (46), draw controls (33), ground balls (29) and caused turnovers (20). She also surpassed the 100-point mark earlier this season and has 87 goals and 22 assists in her career.

Kara Finnerty was the spark to Bowdoin's prolific offense, leading the team with 28 assists while also winning a team-high 83 draw controls and causing 20 turnovers. Her 56 career assists rank fifth all-time at Bowdoin.

Caroline Maxwell was the anchor to Bowdoin's defensive unit this season, helping the team to a 10.56 GAA. She led the team with 26 caused turnovers and 33 ground balls this season.

Bowdoin finished the year with a record of 10-8, advancing to the Third Round of the NCAA Division III Tournament.
