HARRISONBURG, Va., May 31, 2011 -- James Madison lacrosse player Casey Ancarrow (Jarrettsville, Md./John Carroll) has been named to All-America Teams selected by the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association and by Synapse Sports.

Ancarrow also earned IWLCA All-South Region honors along with teammates Mary Kate Lomady (Abington, Pa./Abington) and Cally Chakrian (East Meadow, N.Y./East Meadow).

Ancarrow, a redshirt sophomore attacker, was one of only four sophomores selected to the 51-member IWLCA All-America Team.  She was named to the IWLCA All-America Third Team and was also selected to the Synapse Sports All-America Third Team.

Ancarrow led JMU in goals (43) and points (59) in 2011 and was among the nominees for the 2011 Tewaaraton Trophy, honoring the nation's top college lacrosse player.  After two seasons she is in the top 25 on JMU's career goals (23rd, 84), assists (tied 18th, 40) and points (tied 19th, 124) lists.

Ancarrow, Chakrian and Lomady all earned spots on the All-South Second Team.  Ancarrow was a first-time all-region honoree, while Chakrian and Lomady won the honor for the second year in a row.

Chakrian, a junior defender, was JMU's leader in draw controls (42) and ground balls (25) in 2011.  She has 102 career draw controls, which puts her in eighth place on the Dukes' career list.

Lomady, a senior attacker, ranked second on the JMU team in goals (39), assists (18) and points (57) this spring.  She was selected the Most Outstanding Player at the Colonial Athletic Association Tournament and was on the Watch List for the Tewaaraton Trophy.  Lomady completed her career ranked ninth on JMU's career goals list (127), 11th on the career points list (167), and tied for 18th on the career assist list (40).

The 2011 JMU team won the CAA championship and competed in the NCAA Tournament.  The Dukes finished the season with a 15-4 record and were ranked 10th in the final IWLCA national poll of the season.
