DAVIS, Calif. - UC Davis landed four of its players on the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation All-Academic team for women's lacrosse, the conference announced on Friday morning. Alphabetically, the Aggie honorees are sophomore Ellie Delich, sophomore Mary Doyle, junior Elizabeth Landry and sophomore Courtney Neff.
To be eligible for Academic All-MPSF honors, a student-athlete must have a 3.0 or better cumulative grade-point-average, be a sophomore, junior or senior academically; have completed one full academic year at the member institution prior to the year in which the award is given, and have competed in 50 percent or more of the team's competitions.
This is the second such honor for Landry, who also garnered second-team all-conference honors in April. Delich, Doyle and Neff are in their first years of eligibility for the MPSF honor roll. Neff posted the highest GPA among the four UC Davis honorees, compiling a 3.79 average in international relations.
Stanford had the most All-Academic recipients with 15. Oregon goalkeeper Caroline Federighi holds the top GPA in the conference with a 4.09 in her major of human physiology.
This is the largest slate of Aggies on the MPSF All-Academic team since 2011. UC Davis had just one honoree in 2012, then improved to three last season in Kate Henwood's first year as head coach.
