LEXINGTON, Va. – The College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) released its Google Cloud Academic All-District At-Large women's teams on Thursday, and Washington and Lee senior lacrosse player Cordelia Peters (Larkspur, Calif./Hotchkiss) and junior swimmer Emily Hageboeck (Charleston, W.Va./George Washington) received recognition.
Peters, a business administration major, has 32 goals, 25 assists and 57 points this season for the second-ranked women's lacrosse team. She's also recorded 16 ground balls and six caused turnovers. Over the team's last three contests, Peters has totaled 18 points on eight goals and 10 assists.
In her career, Peters has registered 98 goals and 65 assists for 165 points. The 65 assists are the sixth-most in program history, while the point total is just outside the W&L Top 10. She was named the women's lacrosse ODAC Scholar-Athlete of the Year earlier this season, and this is her second time being named to an Academic All-District team after earning Third Team Academic All-America accolades last year.
The women's lacrosse team is 18-2 overall this season and has won 15 straight contests. W&L takes on eighth-ranked Wesleyan on Saturday at 2:30 pm at Gettysburg College in the NCAA Regional Semifinal round of the national tournament.
Now a two-time Academic All-District selection, Hageboeck earned four All-America citations at the 2019 NCAA Division III Swimming & Diving championships, including first team honors in the 200 breaststroke, 200 medley relay and 400 medley relay. Hageboeck, an accounting and computer science double-major, repeated as the ODAC Swimmer of the Meet and the ODAC/Virginia Farm Bureau Insurance Scholar-Athlete of the Year this season, and is now a three-time All-ODAC First Team swimmer.
Hageboeck currently owns school records in three individual events, all of which she set this season, and is now a 10-time All-American, with seven first team citations.
The women's swimming team completed the 2018-19 campaign with an 8-0 record in dual meets, claimed its 12th consecutive ODAC title and placed 10th at the NCAA Championships, the second Top 10 finish at nationals in program history (7th, 2017).
The criteria for the CoSIDA Google Cloud All-District program states that a player must be of sophomore academic standing, be a starter or important reserve and claim a GPA of at least 3.30 on a 4.0 scale. Washington and Lee is a member of District 5, which includes players from small colleges in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.
With their First Team All-District selections, both Peters and Hageboeck will now go on the national ballot to be considered for CoSIDA Academic All-America honors.
