Liberty freshman Carly White was named to the 2017 Inside Lacrosse (IL) Women's Lacrosse All-Rookie Team on Thursday, one of 25 freshmen in the country to receive the distinction.
White was one of 25 freshmen in the country selected to the 2017 Inside Lacrosse (IL) Women's Lacrosse All-Rookie Team.
White's selection to the All-Rookie Team, consisting of the nation's top 25 first-year players, marks the third consecutive year a Liberty freshman has appeared on the team. Katy Pridemore (2015) and Kayla Foster (2016) were both recognized on the ILWomen All-Rookie Team.
"This is a great honor for Carly to be recognized as part of the top 25 in her class," stated Liberty Women's Lacrosse Head Coach Kelly Nangle. "She had a great freshman year, and we are excited to watch her continue to grow and build on her experience moving into next season."
White, a midfielder, tallied 25 goals, 18 assists, 43 points, 40 ground balls and 26 caused turnovers in 19 contests during her first year in a Liberty uniform. The native of Marietta, Ga. excelled during the final 10 games of the season, compiling 23 goals, 14 assists and 37 points.
She tallied seven points (4 g, 3 a) in back-to-back contests late in the season, including a seven-point effort in the Big South Women's Lacrosse Championship quarterfinals that propelled the Lady Flames to their third postseason victory in program history, 20-13, over Longwood.
White was named the Big South Women's Lacrosse Freshman of the Year in late April as well as a Big South All-Conference first team selection.
