Hamilton College's Lauren Sokol '12 (Colts Neck, N.J./Peddie School) has been selected to play in the 2012 Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) Division III North-South Senior All-Star Game.
The game will be held at the United Sports Training Center in Downingtown, Pa., on Saturday, June 16. A total of 40 players are on the Division III rosters. Sokol is one of 21 players on the North squad.
Sokol was one of four defenders named to the 2012 IWLCA All-America second team in May. She is the sixth two-time All-American in Hamilton women's lacrosse history. Sokol was a first team All-American in 2010 after she helped lead Hamilton to the NCAA title game.
The 2012 NESCAC all-conference first team honoree tied for ninth in the conference with 45 draw controls, and ranked 10th with 1.41 caused turnovers per game. Sokol was an all-region selection for the Empire Region in 2010 and 2012, and was a 2010 ECAC Division III Upstate all-star.
Sokol helped lead Hamilton (7-10 overall, 4-6 NESCAC) to the 2012 NESCAC Championship semifinals as the No. 7 seed in the Continentals' first year in the conference. Hamilton defeated Colby College 9-4 in the quarterfinals on April 28 before the Continentals fell 9-8 in overtime to eventual conference and national champion Trinity College on May 5. Hamilton competed in the Liberty League for lacrosse from 1996 to 2011.
