Maryland women’s lacrosse stars Lizzie Colson, Brindi Griffin, and Grace Griffin were named Preseason All-Americans by Inside Lacrosse Monday.

Colson, a redshirt senior and defender, took home first-team honors. Fifth-year attacker Brindi Griffin and senior midfielder Grace Griffin earned third-team and honorable mention honors, respectively.

Now a three-time All-American, Colson has also amassed multiple All-Big Ten and All-Big Ten tournament awards over her career in College Park despite missing all of 2020 with an ACL injury. Ranked as the 14th best player in the country by Inside Lacrosse, Colson rode a historic 2019 effort to a National Championship with the Terps.

A valuable member of the Terps’ national championship run in 2019, Brindi Griffin maintains her All-American status for the second year in a row. The attacker’s goal-scoring prowess stands out, as her 15 goals and 18 points led the team in a limited 2020 season. Griffin sits just three goals shy of 100 for her career.

After being named Big Ten Freshman of the Year in 2018, Grace Griffin has gone on to contribute 77 goals and 22 assists to the Terps offense. The midfielder is no stranger to national acclaim; 2021 will be the third consecutive season in which she enters as a Preseason All-American.

The Big Ten has yet to release the 2021 women’s lacrosse schedule.
