The Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association named Maryland women’s lacrosse defender Lizzie Colson, midfielder Grace Griffin and attacker Hannah Leubecker All-Americans. This announcement marks the 12th straight year with at least three All-American Maryland women’s lacrosse players.

The All-American trio of Colson, Griffin, and Leubecker affirms what it means to “fear the turtle.” Colson was selected for the All-American First Team while Griffin and Leubecker were selected for the Third Team.

Colson was a Tewaaraton Finalist, the Big Ten Defender of the Year, a Unanimous First Team All-Big Ten selection, and a Big Ten All-Tournament Team selection all thanks to her nation-leading 49 caused turnovers and a conference-leading 59 groundballs during the 2021 season.

Griffin was nothing short of a powerhouse player for the Terps as she had 48 points, scoring 29 goals and recording 19 assists. The midfielder was also selected as the University of Maryland Student-Athlete of the Year and Big Ten Medal of Honor Recipient this year.

Leubecker scored more goals this season than anyone else on the team. Her 58 goals scored were third-most goals in the Big Ten and the 16th most in the country earning her a spot on the All-Big Ten First Team. The Maryland native shattered records as she scored the most goals in the first eight games (35) in the program history.
