    2022 Academic Honor Squads

    The Liberty lacrosse squad earned academic honors from the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Association (IWLCA) on Wednesday afternoon, highlighted by a program-record six IWLCA Honor Roll recipients.

    Liberty’s Brooke Bryan, Mikayla Coghill, Andrea Colavito, Alexa Evernham, Jennifer Soriero and Mia Toscano garnered inclusion on the 2022 IWLCA Division I Academic Honor Roll. Toscano is being honored for the second time (other: 2021), while the other five Lady Flames are first-time recipients of the IWLCA Academic Honor Roll award. Liberty’s six honorees surpasses the previous school record of four, set in both 2015 and 2021.

    The Lady Flames’ six Honor Roll recipients establishes a new program record, eclipsing the previous record of four. To qualify for IWLCA Honor Roll recognition, a student-athlete must be a junior, senior, or graduate student (by athletic eligibility) and have earned a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.50 or higher. The IWLCA honored 1,019 student-athletes from 108 different institutions on the 2022 IWLCA Division I Academic Honor Roll

    Additionally, the team earned IWLCA Academic Honor Squad distinction for the fourth year in a row. To qualify for the prestigious honor of IWLCA Academic Honor Squad, a team must have posted a 3.20 GPA or higher for the academic year. Liberty achieved a 3.35 GPA during the 2021-22 school year. The IWLCA named 398 schools across Division I, II, III and NAIA as IWLCA Academic Honor Squads.
