Yale Leads Ivy League with Five IWLCA Academic Honor Roll Selections

David, DeMarco, Eliasberg, Sturgill and Trivellas Honored

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Yale landed an Ivy League-leading five student-athletes on the IWLCA Academic Honor Roll for the 2010 season, which was announced Monday. The Bulldogs' selections were Sarah David '10, Lindsey DeMarco '10, Claire Eliasberg '10, Jessica Sturgill '10 and rising senior Mahi Trivellas.

David, a Russian and Eastern European studies major from New Haven, appeared in seven games, including three starts, and had one assist. DeMarco, an economics major from Marlboro, N.J., appeared in a pair of games, including one start. Eliasberg, a history of science, history of medicine major from San Diego, appeared in all 15 games and had 17 ground balls along with 11 caused turnovers. This is the second major academic honor of the 2010 season for Eliasberg, the team captain, as she was also an Academic All-Ivy League selection.

Sturgill, a psychology major from Ellicott City, Md., played in 14 games and was third on the team in goals (18) and tied for third in points (21). Trivellas, a biology major from Chadds Ford, Pa., appeared in 11 games, including eight starts, and had one assist.

Earlier this month, Yale as a team earned IWLCA Academic Squad recognition, which goes to teams with grade-point averages of 3.0 or higher.

The IWLCA honored 151 student-athletes from 62 different institutions with inclusion in the 2010 Academic Honor Roll. Yale's five selections were the most in the Ivy League, followed by Brown and Dartmouth with three each. All student-athletes were nominated by their schools and have achieved at least junior status academically.
