BALTIMORE, Md. -- Washington and Lee senior goalkeeper Joanna Perini (Huntington, N.Y./Huntington) has been named to the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association/US Lacrosse All-America team which was announced on Tuesday afternoon.

Perini was named to the Third Team, marking the fourth straight year that W&L has claimed an All-America selection.

The selection to the All-America team was also the second of Perini's career after she garnered US Lacrosse Honorable Mention All-America laurels as a freshman in 2001.

Perini was named the ODAC Player and Scholar-Athlete of the Year in 2004, and posted First Team All-ODAC accolades for the second straight season. A First Team IWLCA All-South Atlantic Region selection this season, she logged the majority of the minutes in goal and made 140 saves. Her 6.42 goals-against average ranked in the Top 20 in Division III, while her .593 save percentage ranked in the Top 15. She finishes her career ranked second all-time at W&L in career saves (589) and career save percentage (.613).

Washington and Lee tied the school record for wins in a season after notching a 15-4 overall mark and finishing 7-1 in the ODAC. The Generals won the ODAC title and advanced to the NCAA Division III Tournament for the second-straight season before falling to Gettysburg, 13-8, in the second-round.
