Swarthout selected for North-South Senior All-Star Game

WASHINGTON – Mary Swarthout will close out her lacrosse career at the IWLCA North-South Senior All-Star Game.  The contest will take place on Saturday, June 16 at the United Sports Training Center in Downingtown, Pa.

Swarthout’s latest honor adds to an impressive list of accolades she has collected this year.  Last week, she became the first CUA women’s lacrosse player to be named a multi-year First Team All-American.  She also joined Kate Robinson as the only players in program history to be named an All-American three times.

Swarthout earned First Team All-Region and All-Conference laurels for the fourth straight year in 2012, and also captured her third consecutive Landmark Conference Player of the Year award.

A native of nearby Rockville, Md., Swarthout scored multiple goals in every game she played this season, with a high of six coming vs. No. 1 Salisbury in early March.  She wrapped up her brilliant career in the red and black with 226 goals and 331 points.

Swarthout led the Cardinals in goals (69), assists (30), points (99), draw controls (130), ground balls (65) and caused turnovers (37) this season.  The 130 draw controls set a new single season record at CUA.

With Swarthout leading the way, CUA finished the season with an overall record of 16-6 and a perfect 4-0 mark within the Landmark Conference.  The Cardinals won their fifth consecutive conference title and at least one game in the NCAA Tournament for the fifth straight year.  CUA also advanced to its third NCAA Tournament Regional Final in the last five years.
