Three named to All-Metro team

BALTIMORE, Md. – Three members of the McDaniel College women’s lacrosse team have been named to the 2009 All-Metro Region team by the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) on Thursday.

            Junior Brittany Baer (Westminster, Md./Westminster) earned first-team honors while seniors Michelle Fluty (Huntingtown, Md./Calvert) and Lindsey McDonald (Germantown, Md./Damascus) were named to the second team.
            Baer, an attacker, earned her first all-region honor after being named to the All-Centennial Conference (CC) team for the second straight season. She led the team and CC with a program-record 76 goals. Her team-leading 88 points ranked second on the all-time single-season list, two shy of Sandi Stevens’ 1987 record (90). She controlled 60 draws, which is also a program record, in addition to causing 25 turnovers and picking up 35 ground balls.
            Fluty, a defender, was also a first-team All-CC selection before earning the all-region nod. She was a key member of the defense, causing 13 turnovers and picking up 27 ground balls. She also contributed one goal to the offense in a 15-1 win over Bryn Mawr.
            McDonald, an attacker, paced the team with a program-record 41 assists. She also tallied 19 goals to finish second on the team with 60 points while adding 20 ground balls and eight caused turnovers.
            By being named all-region, the athletes are eligible for inclusion in the IWLCA/US Lacrosse All-American team, slated to be released on Friday.
            The Green Terror finished its season with an overall record of 9-8 (5-4 CC).
