Delaware Women’s Lacrosse Seniors Alex Alois and Tori Zorovich Selected for IWLCA Senior North-South All-Star Game
GRAND LAKE, Colo. – For the first time since the 2009 season, the University of Delaware women’s lacrosse program will have two student-athletes represent the Blue Hens at the IWLCA Senior North-South All-Star Game.
Alex Alois (Andover, Mass.) and Tori Zorovich (Massapequa, N.Y.) are two of 44 total NCAA Division I women’s lacrosse student-athletes selected for the event, which will take place on Saturday, June 7 at Cabrini College in Radnor, Pa. The Division I game is slated to begin at 11:30 a.m. with the Division II and Division III games following at 12:45 p.m. and 2 p.m., respectively.
In total, six Colonial Athletic Association student-athletes were chosen as Alois and Zorovich will be joined by Amy Roguski (James Madison) and Jenna Dougherty (William & Mary) on the South squad while Jenn Ward and Emily Corzel both represent Hofstra on the North team.
A starting defender for Delaware, Alois started all 17 games and posted a career-best 26 groundballs this past season to finish her career with a total of 75. She also placed fifth on the team with nine caused turnovers.
Zorovich regained the starting goalkeeper position for the Hens during her senior campaign and finished second in the CAA with 8.42 goals allowed per game and fourth with a .429 save percentage. Her totals were good to rank for 21st and 45th in the NCAA, respectively.
“Alex and Tori both had personal best seasons this year,” commented head coach Kateri Linville, who recently completed her fourth season at the helm of the Blue Hens. “I knew they would be leaders for us because they were determined to be their best and help us return the program to the conference tournament. The staff and I really enjoyed working with them to achieve their goals. I am happy to see them have another opportunity to play together and represent Delaware in this year’s North-South All-Star game.”
The Blue Hens concluded the 2014 slate with a 10-7 mark and the first trip to the CAA Tournament since the 2009 season. UD, the third seed in the tournament, fell to No. 2 James Madison, 13-9, in the semifinals.
Emily Schaknowski last represented the Hens in the 2010 All-Star game while Jessica Cerveny and Erin Zimmerman were the last Delaware duo to compete when they did so in 2009.
