Web site recognizes Allen, Johnson

Two William Smith College lacrosse players recently received postseason honors from the web site womenslacrosse.com. Defender Torie Allen ’09 was tabbed a third-team All-American, while midfielder Lucy Johnson ’12 earned a spot on the All-Rookie Team.

A four-year starter, Allen led the Herons in ground balls (56), draw controls (51), and caused turnovers (30). She ranked second in the Liberty League in both ground balls and draws and was third in caused turnovers (27th in the nation). Allen collected a season-high eight GBs at Hamilton, twice corralled a season-high six draws, and forced a season-high four turnovers against Vassar.

A two-time All-Liberty League selection, Allen also earned IWLCA first-team All-Region honors this season. She holds the William Smith career record for draws (124), ranks second in caused turnovers (84), and is eighth in ground balls (166).

The only first-year to start every game for the Herons this season, Johnson finished second on the team in goals (37) and points (50) and shared the team lead in assists (13). All all-around talent, she also ranked second on the team in draws (29) and third in ground balls. Johnson produced a season-high seven points (6g, 1a) at Clarkson.

The Liberty League Rookie of the Year also earned IWLCA second-team All-Region honors.

William Smith finished the year with an 11-4 overall record, ranked 13th in the nation in the final IWLCA poll.
