PRINCETON, N.J. (5/14/14) - The Princeton women's lacrosse team handed out its annual awards and celebrated its seniors at the team's annual banquet last night at Prospect House.
Honored at the banquet were seniors Grace Bowen, Liz Cutting, Caroline Franke, Sarah Lloyd, Kellie Ragg, Mary-Kate Sivilli, Colleen Smith and Erin Williams.
Lloyd was presented with The Emily Goodfellow Award. It is awarded annually to that upperclass player who by distinguishing herself in the sport has contributed to team unity, morale and spirit and has demonstrated love of lacrosse and of Princeton. Established in 1991 by Mr. & Mrs. Thorp V. D. Goodfellow ’41, parents of Emily C. Goodfellow ’76, the only Princeton athlete ever to earn 12 varsity letters. Lloyd is the 2014 Ivy League Midfielder of the Year, who earned first-team all-region honors earlier this week. She finished fourth on the team in scoring with 28 goals and eight assists for 36 points. Lloyd was the team leader in draw controls with 40 and ground balls with 30, while adding 11 caused turnovers. Lloyd scored her 100th career point on March 29 against Cornell and ranks 22nd all-time in scoring at Princeton with 118 points on 79 goals and 39 assists. She is the all-time Princeton leader in draw controls with 152.
The Connie McCallister Award was presented to Smith. It is awarded annually to that player who, in the image of Connie McCallister, gives all of herself to the program through participation, effort, selfless dedication, enthusiasm and heart. This award is given in memory of Connie McCallister, loyal supporter and ardent fan of Princeton women’s lacrosse, by the teammates and friends of her daughter, Brent McCallister ’98. Smith is a first-team all-region and all-Ivy League defender. Smith finished second on team in caused turnovers with 14 and added 17 draw controls and 13 ground balls. She tallied her first career points this year with a goal against No. 14 Georgetown and a career-best five draw controls. She added three assists during the season while opening it with a career-high four caused turnovers at No. 6 Loyola. Smith was named the Ivy League Defensive Player of the Week on April 20 after her defense against No. 10 Penn and Dartmouth. She anchored the defense that forced Penn into 13 turnovers and just 13 shots. She was also crucial in limiting Penn to just five goals, its fewest goals scored in an Ivy League game since April 15, 2006.
