PROVIDENCE, RI - Co-captains Julia Southard '05 (Manhasset, NY) and Kate Staley '06 (Needham, MA), along with sophomore Amie Biros (Bethesda, MD) of the Brown women's lacrosse team were selected to the 2005 All-Ivy Women's Lacrosse Teams as selected by the Ivy League's eight head coaches.

Staley earned Second Team All-Ivy honors this season, after earning Honorable Mention All-Ivy honors a year ago. The second-leading scorer on the team this year with 34 points, Staley shared the team lead in goals, scored (27) with Biros. She led the team in scoring last year and was fifth on the team in scoring as a freshman in 2003. She finished second on the team with 35 ground balls, fourth on the team with 10 caused turnovers, and led the Bears with 31 draw controls. A Second Team IWLCA All-Region selection last year, she needs just three more points to earn her 100th career point.

Southard joins Staley on the All-Ivy Second Team, earning All-Ivy honors for the first time. A three-year starter in goal, Southard has a career GAA of 11.43 and a .478 career save percentage. She has posted her best numbers this season with a 10.60 GAA, sixth in the Ivy League, and a .502 save percentage, fourth in the Ivy League, to go along with one shutout. The backbone of Brown's defense this season, she has notched 137 saves. Her 10.54 saves per game average ranked second in the league.

Biros earned Honorable Mention All-Ivy recognition, and is making her first appearance on an All-Ivy team. The Bears' leading scorer with 35 points (27g, 8a), Biros shared the team lead with Staley in goals, and led Brown with eight assists. She also picked up 30 ground balls, third on the team, and earned 29 draw controls, second on the team. Biros played her best during the Ivy season with 18 goals, seven assists, and 25 points in Ivy games, ranking fifth in goals, fifth in assists, and third in points in League games only.
