Molly WolfAfter a season in which they allowed only 8.55 goals per game, the Loyola women’s lacrosse team saw two players receiver All-American honors: defender Maddy Lesher and goalkeeper Molly Wolf. Their honors were announced by the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA).

Lesher earned her third-straight All-America honors as a senior as she was selected to the second team. Lesher has been the team’s top mark-up defender every year and graduates as the most decorated defender in Loyola history as the first-ever three-time defensive All-American. She was also the first person to win three Patriot League Defensive Player of the Year awards.

This year she led the Patriot League with 50 caused turnovers and was sixth in the country with 2.63 per game. The 50 caused turnovers are second all-time in school history behind Kellye Gallagher’s record 54 in 2012. Lesher was also fifth in the nation with 3.32 ground balls per game. She led the Patriot League with 63 on the season, which is tied for the most in an individual season at Loyola.

Lesher is fifth all-time in school history in career ground balls (167) and caused turnovers (109).

Wolf, a third-team selection, started every single game of her four-year career in the cage for the Greyhounds. This year she was a first team All-Patriot League selection and was the conference’s tournament MVP as the greyhounds won a third-straight Patriot League title.

Wolf held all but two Patriot League opponents to six goals ot led and led the league with 6.16 goals against and a .607 save-percentage. She is ninth nationally with 164 saves and sixth in the nation with a .519 save-percentage for the season. She also had 40 ground balls and 11 caused turnovers this season.

You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
