CHESTNUTNUT HILL, Mass. -
Boston College attacker Covie Stanwick has been named the 2012 Atlantic Coast Conference Lacrosse Freshman of the Year, according to an announcement made by the league on Friday. This selection marks the first-ever for the Boston College program.
"Covie was instrumental for us this season, and I am very proud of what she has accomplished," head coach Bowen Holden said. "She is well deserving of this honor, as she puts forth the work ethic necessary to succeed. I have no doubt she will continue to be a vital part of the program's future success."
Stanwick finished the season second on the team with 55 points, tying BC's all-time record for points in a freshman season. The Baltimore, Md. native also posted a team-best 27 assists to top the school's freshman record list for that category, as well.
A constant threat on the Eagles front line, Stanwick tallied at least one point in 17 of the team's 18 games, and recorded at least three points 12 times this season. She also posted a season-high four assists on two different occasions.
Earlier this season, Stanwick became the first freshman in Eagles' history to be named to the All-ACC Team.
