Caldwell, Hudgins, McGilloway and Waterman Named 2011 All-Ivy
PROVIDENCE, RI – Seniors Paris Waterman (Newark, DE) and Alexa Caldwell (Middletown, DE), junior Kaela McGilloway (Sea Cliff, NY) and freshman Bre Hudgins (Syracuse, NY) of the Brown women's lacrosse team have been selected to the 2011 All-Ivy women's lacrosse team as selected by the League's eight head coaches. Waterman was named First Team for the second straight year, while McGilloway earned a spot on the Second Team for the second year in a row. Hudgins was also a Second Team honoree, while Caldwell earned Honorable Mention accolades.
Waterman was one of four midfielders named to the First Team, and one of only two repeat First Team All-Ivy honorees in the midfield, joining Princeton's Lizzy Drumm. Waterman followed her breakthrough junior year for the Bears with another outstanding season, while playing more of a defensive role throughout the year. A current member of the U.S. National Team, Waterman finished third on the team with 32 points (26, 6a), while drawing the attention of the opponents' defense all year. A key player on the draw, Waterman finished the year with 21 draw controls, 15 ground balls and 13 caused turnovers. In 60 career games, all starts, Waterman finished her Brown career with 80 points (64g, 16a). She will also leave Brown with 91 career ground balls, 58 career caused turnovers (7th all-time), and 61 career draw controls (12th all-time).
McGilloway had another strong year on attack, leading Brown in scoring for the second straight year after earning 50 points (31g, 19a), her second straight season with at least 50 points after earning 51 a year ago. McGilloway finished the 2011 season ranked second in the Ivy League in assists per game (1.27), third in the League in points per game (3.33), and eighth in the League in goals per game (2.07). She was also second in the League with three game-winning goals, a team-high. In conference games only, McGilloway led the Ivy League with 1.57 assists per game and was ninth with 2.86 points per game. The Ivy League Offensive Player of the Week after posting nine points in a pair of games, McGilloway had at least one point in every contest in 2011, stretching her consecutive point scoring streak to 25 games. Having played in all 45 games of her career, McGilloway will enter her final season already ranked among Brown's all-time scoring leaders. She is 7th with 130 points, the most since Phoebe Koch '98, 10th with 83 goals, the most since Kate Staley '06, and 6th with 47 assists.
Hudgins made an immediate impact on the field and is one of just three freshmen in the Ivy League to earn All-Ivy honors this season, joining Rookie of the Year Kristen Giovanniello (Dartmouth) and Lydia Miller (Penn). A top player for the Bears this year, Hudgins finished the season ranked second on the team with 43 points and first on the team with 37 goals, a Brown record for goals by a freshman. Her 43 points is the second-highest point total for a Brown rookie and is the highest since 1982. She also added 15 ground balls and six caused turnovers, to go along with 26 draw controls, third on the team. A four-time selection to the Ivy Leauge Honor Roll, Hudgins ranked fifth in the Ivy League in goals per game (2.47) and eighth in points per game (2.87).
Caldwell has been a consistent midfielder for four years, playing in all 61 games of her career (51 starts). One of the top scorers on the team each season, Caldwell has also been a leader in ground balls, caused turnovers and draw controls. This season, she shared the team lead with 26 ground balls, was second in draw controls (30), and led the team with 21 caused turnovers. She finished the year ranked fifth in the Ivy League with 1.40 caused turnovers per game and was also fifth with 1.43 per game in League games only. Her 24 points (18g, 6a) was fourth on the team. Caldwell finished her career with 74 points (60g, 14a), 94 ground balls (19th all-time at Brown), 59 caused turnovers (6th all-time at Brown), and 73 draw controls (7th all-time at Brown).
