German, Van Beck Repeat as IWLCA All-Americans

German Named to First Team, Van Beck Earns Third Team Honors


WINTER PARK, Fla. (June 12, 2018) – The Rollins women's lacrosse team placed two student-athletes on the 2018 Division II All-American Teams, organization officials announced Tuesday.  Juniors Kallie German and Lindsay Van Beck repeat as All-American selections, with German getting the nod on the First Team, and Van Beck receiving Third Team honors.

A total of 48 student-athletes were chosen to one of the 2018 Division II All-American teams this year, with German earning her third consecutive selection, and Van Beck selected for her second straight.  In all, 11 student-athletes from the Sunshine State Conference were highlighted on this year's All-American squads, with four earning First Team honors, three getting the nod on the Second Team, and four placing on the Third Team.

German earns a well-deserved position as a First Team All-American after an outstanding junior season that saw her lead the team in goals, assists, and overall points.  This marks the third All-American honor for German, and the first First Team selection, which she adds to her Third Team selections she earned her freshman and sophomore seasons.  The Centreville, Md. native was tabbed as a First Team IWLCA All-Region selection earlier this season, as well as picked up First Team All-SSC honors for her junior year efforts.  German helped the Tars climb as high as sixth on the IWLCA DII Coaches Poll this season thanks to a junior campaign that saw her lead the team with 68 goals and 31 assists for 99 points overall.  The attacker amassed 17 ground balls, 18 draw controls, and 13 caused turnovers throughout the season, while posting a shot percentage of .523 and a shots on goal percentage of .808.  For her efforts throughout the season, German was named Sunshine State Conference Player of the Week twice, as well as IWLCA DII Offensive Player of the Week once.  German was just one of four student-athletes from the SSC to be recognized as a 2018 IWLCA First Team All-American.

Van Beck picks up her second straight All-American honor, and adds her 2018 Third Team selection to her 2017 Second Team nod.  The Atlanta, Ga. native earned her spot on this season's All-American team after being selected as a First Team All-Region standout.  Van Beck was also named a First Team All-Sunshine State Conference honoree for her efforts throughout her junior year campaign.  The defender was instrumental in helping the Tars to a record of 14-4, and helped lead the team to their fourth straight appearance in the Sunshine State Conference Tournament.  Van Beck notched a goal and an assist on the season as a low defender, and led the team in ground balls and caused turnovers with 33 and 34, respectively.  The junior also added 14 draw controls, and helped hold opponents to just 416 shots and 330 shots on goal all season.

The complete list of 48 student-athletes on this year's All-American squads spans three teams and features players from 18 different teams.
