McGilloway & Waterman Named All-Ivy

PROVIDENCE, RI – Junior Paris Waterman (Newark, DE) and sophomore Kaela McGilloway (Sea Cliff, NY) of the Brown women's lacrosse team have been selected to the 2010 All-Ivy women's lacrosse team as selected by the League's eight head coaches. Waterman was named First Team, while McGilloway earned a spot on the Second Team, as both are first-time selections.

Waterman was one of three midfielders named to the First Team, joining Penn's Ali DeLuca and Emma Spiro. Waterman had a breakthrough year for the Bears, while becoming one of the most marked midfielders in the League. Despite drawing the opposition's defensive attention for the majority of the season, Waterman enters the final game of the year currently second on the team in points (38), goals (32), and assists (6), all career-highs. The junior also currently leads Brown with 33 ground balls and with 16 caused turnovers, and is second on the team with 22 draw controls. Waterman has scored at least one goal in all 14 of Brown's games, including 10 multi-goal games and four games with at least three goals. She had some of her best games against Ivy opponents, compiling 20 points (19g, 1a) in League contests. Among the Ancient Eight, Waterman ranks fourth with 2.36 ground balls per game, third with 0.79 free position goals per game, and 7th with 2.29 points per game.

McGilloway had an outstanding year at attack, and enters Brown's final game of the year leading the team with 48 points, 34 goals, and 14 assists, all career-highs. Her 48 points, a mark that ranks 9th all-time at Brown, is the most since 1989 when Perry Moriearty '91 also had 48 points. Her 34 goals, a mark that ranks 8th all-time at Brown, is the most since 1987, when Sue Cutler '88 also had 34 goals. A smart and steady attacker, McGilloway also had 13 ground balls and eight caused turnovers. Throughout the season, McGilloway scored at least one goal in 12 of the Bears' 14 games, earning Ivy League Offensive Player of the Week honors after notching 20 points (9g, 11a) in three straight wins for the Bears. She had nine multi-goal games, including six where she scored at least three goals. Among the Ancient Eight, McGilloway ranks fourth with 2.43 goals per game, eighth with 1.00 assists per game, and sixth with 3.43 points per game.
