Three Cardinals lead South to victory in Senior All-Star Game

WASHINGTON – A trio of CUA lacrosse standouts recently put the finishing touches on their careers by participating in the 2011 IWLCA Division III Senior All-Star Game, which took place on June 11 in Downingtown, Pa.  Kate Robinson, Becky Borrell and Katie Buonpastore helped to lead the South squad to an impressive 15-4 win over the North.

Buonpastore led the South squad with four points, which came on a pair of goals and assists, while Robinson assisted on one of the team’s 15 scores.  Borrell helped lead the defense to a terrific effort, limiting the North squad to just a single goal in the second half.

Buonpastore scored one of her goals in the early going to give the South a 2-0 advantage and her second score gave the South a 5-2 lead.  She then assisted on the South’s sixth goal and her and Robinson assisted on the team’s final two scores.

CUA’s three selections to the North-South game were its most in school history.

Cardinals Head Coach Meghan McDonogh attended the game in Pennsylvania, along with current team members Mary Robinson and Mary Swarthout as well as recent graduates Sarah Fitzgerald and Lindsay Davenport.
