W&L's Ingram Earns First Team All-State Honors
NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – Washington and Lee junior guard Meg Ingram (Greensboro, N.C./Ragsdale) was recently named to the Virginia Sports Information Directors (VaSID) Women's Basketball All-State team.
Ingram earned First Team All-State accolades for the first time in her career, becoming the first W&L player since Jessica Mentz '02 to be named to the first team. It is the second honor for Ingram from VaSID, as she earned Rookie of the Year laurels during the 2008-09 season.
Ingram started all 27 games for the Generals last season en route to collecting First Team All-ODAC honors. She finished her junior campaign leading the team in points (15.0), assists (5.1), steals (2.0) and minutes (34.5) per game. She also ranked second on the team in three-point shooting percentage (62-170, 36.5%) and free-throw shooting percentage (65-80, 81.3%).
Last season, Ingram became just the eighth player in program history to surpass 1,000 career points, and currently resides sixth on the all-time scoring list with 1,178 points. She also ranks third all-time in assists (343) and ninth in steals (147).
Christopher Newport guard Chelsie Schweers was named the Player of the Year for the fourth consecutive season, the first ever player to achieve that feat. CNU Head Coach Carolyn Hunter was tabbed as the Coach of the Year, while Eastern Mennonite's Kala Yoders earned Rookie of the Year honors.
The Generals finished the 2010-11 campaign with a program-best 19 wins, going 19-8 overall and 14-6 in ODAC play. The No. 4 seed in the conference tournament, W&L defeated No. 5 seed Eastern Mennonite in the quarterfinals before falling to top-seeded Randolph-Macon in the semifinals.
