Syracuse Women's Lacrosse Standout Christina Dove Earns Academic All-America Honors

Syracuse women's lacrosse senior standout Christina Dove highlights the 2010 ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America Women's At-Large Teams, as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America. Dove was a first-team selection.

An Accounting and Finance major with a 3.82 G.P.A., Dove led the Syracuse lacrosse team to a 15-7 record and a berth in the NCAA Championship semifinals as a senior. A three-time IWLCA All-American selection who earned first team honors as a senior, she scored 67 goals with 28 assists in 2010. Honored as the BIG EAST Conference Midfielder of the Year twice, she was named first team All-BIG EAST three times. A native of Bel Air, Md., she finished her career with a school-record 250 goals. She is tied for ninth place on the NCAA Division I all-time goals scoring list. Dove also was also chosen as the 2009-10 BIG EAST Scholar-Athlete institutional award winner.

Last year Dove was named to the Academic All-America Women's At Large second team.

It marks the second consecutive season that a member of the Orange women's lacrosse program has been named to the Academic All-America First Team. Katie Rowan also earned the honor in 2009.
