Women's Lacrosse Receives IWLCA Team Awareness Award
Nov. 28, 2017
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – The Marquette University women’s lacrosse program was recently presented the IWLCA-Nike Team Community Awareness Award at the organization’s annual 2017 Honors Banquet at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort.
The Team Community Awareness Award recognizes outstanding contributions by one team from each division on their campus and in their local community. Marquette compiled the most community service hours (671.5) of any Division I women’s lacrosse program during the 2016-17 academic year, spanning more than 20 service events.
“It’s truly an honor for our program to be recognized for an award of this caliber,” said Marquette head coach Meredith Black. “This award is extra-special to us because it incorporates the values of Marquette and emphasizes what we’re able to do on and off the field.
“One of the four pillars at Marquette is service and our team has embraced it to unbelievable lengths. I’m really proud of our team for their commitment and dedication to so many worthy causes. A special thanks goes to (assistant coach) Caitlin Fifield for her help in coordinating more than 20 community service events last year.”
Marquette women’s lacrosse has already devoted several hours this year with events like Al’s Run, Stuff the Truck, Turkey Palooza and many PanCAN-related events throughout the Milwaukee community.
Limestone College (Division II) and Utica College (Division III) were also recognized for their work in the community.
