Martin named to IWLCA poll

The In­ter­col­le­giate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches As­so­ci­a­tion rec­og­nized Guil­ford Col­lege (N.C.) for aca­demic ex­cel­lence.

Guil­ford was one of 308 schools across Divi­sion I, II, III, and NAIA lauded as IWLCA Zag Sports Aca­demic Honor Squads for the 201617 aca­demic year. Hon­orees recorded a 3.0 or higher team GPA for the aca­demic year.

Guil­ford’s team honor was made pos­si­ble in part as four Quak­ers were tabbed as mem­bers of the IWLCA Zag Sports Divi­sion III Aca­demic Honor Roll.

Among them was ju­nior Kelly Martin, a North Point High School grad­u­ate from La Plata, who was among 532 stu­dent-ath­letes from 159 dif­fer­ent Divi­sion III in­sti­tu­tions rec­og­nized. Hon­orees are of ju­nior aca­demic stand­ing or higher and earned a cu­mu­la­tive aca­demic GPA of 3.50 or greater.

Martin, a dean’s list ex­er­cise and sport sciences/health sciences dou­ble ma­jor, is a three-year start­ing at­tacker. She is a three-time Aca­demic All-Old Do­min­ion Ath­letic Con­fer­ence pick and has been on Guil­ford’s Stu­dent-Ath­lete Honor Roll all six semesters.

An ed­u­ca­tion stud­ies mi­nor, Martin will pre­side over Guil­ford’s Stu­dent-Ath­lete Ad­vi­sory Com­mit­tee in 2017-18.

Coach Sarah Lam­phier’s Quak­ers posted a 6-10 over­all record (3-5 ODAC) in 2017 and could re­turn as many as 13 let­ter win­ners next year, in­clud­ing Martin. Guil­ford Col­lege (N.C.)
