Release: 05/17/2017

CHAPEL HILL—Four University of North Carolina players have earned All-America honors for the 2017 from the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association, the IWLCA announced on Thursday afternoon. Senior attacker Molly Hendrick and junior midfielder Marie McCool made the first team, while junior attacker Ela Hazar and senior attacker Sammy Jo Tracy are on the third team.

Hendrick is the 2017 Atlantic Coast Conference Attacker of the Year and earned Most Valuable Players in leading the Tar Heels to the ACC Tournament championship last month in Richmond, Va. She has scored a school-record 69 goals this season.

McCool is one of five finalists for the 2017 Tewaaraton Award and is the ACC Midfielder of the Year. She has 47 goals, 18 assists, 51 draw controls, 30 ground balls and 18 caused turnovers this season.

Hazar has a UNC-record 37 assists this season, leading the ACC. She also has 30 goals and ranks second among Tar Heels with 67 total points in 2017.

Tracy holds Carolina records for most draw controls in a game, a season and a career, including a career-high 141 this season as a fifth-year senior. 

The Tar Heels will host Navy in the NCAA Tournament quarterfinals on Saturday at 1 p.m. at Fetzer Field.

The IWLCA will honor the National All-Americas at the IWLCA All-America Banquet on Saturday June 3, 2017, in Hunt Valley, Md.
