Winters Mill grad Erin McMunn named Ivy Attacker of the Year

Princeton’s Erin McMunn, a Winters Mill graduate, was named Ivy League Attacker of the Year and teammate Sarah Lloyd, a Severna Park graduate, made first team when the conference’s postseason awards were announced Wednesday.

McMunn was the Ivy League Rookie of the Year last season and is the first Ivy League women’s lacrosse player to win one of the top position awards the year following her rookie selection. She is also only the second sophomore in conference history to win one of the major awards. She is a veteran of the U.S. Under-19 team that won the gold medal in Germany in 2011.

Several other locals were named to the second team: Princeton’s Liz Bannatine (McDonogh) and Caroline Franke (Severn) and Harvard’s Audrey Todd (Roland Park). Cornell’s Sarah Hefner (St. Paul’s) received honorable mention.

Penn’s Shannon Mangini was named Midfielder of the Year and Cornell’s Kate Ivory was Defender of the Year.
