Baltimore, Md. – Notre Dame senior goalkeeper Jen White (Annapolis, Md.) has been selected to play in the 2003 STX Lacrosse Classic on Saturday, June 7th in Baltimore, Md. The eighth annual North-South Senior All-Star game is set to begin at 5:00 p.m. (EDT) at Loyola College’s Curley Field. White is the fifth Notre Dame player to be named to the North All-Star team in the seven-year history of the Irish women’s lacrosse program.
White, a three-year starter for the Irish turned in a solid season in goal for Notre Dame for the 2003 campaign. She finished her final year with an 8-7 record to go along with a 9.86 goals-against average and a .504 save percentage in 15 starts on the season. A second team all-BIG EAST selection in 2003, White turned in career-best save performances versus Cornell (16) and Georgetown (19). Versus Georgetown, she stopped five of 10 free-position shots among her 19 saves in an overtime loss to the Hoyas.
The backbone of a young defensive corps, she kept Notre Dame in games until the Irish high-powered offense would take over. A second team all-Mid-Atlantic Region choice and a third team IWLCA All-American, White finished her career as Notre Dame’s all-time leader in games played (53), wins (31), saves (432) and goals-against average (8.79) after being the team’s starter in goal for three consecutive seasons.
The Irish finished the season with an 8-7 overall record and were 4-2 in the BIG EAST, good for third place. Notre Dame finished the season ranked 16th in the IWLCA polls.
Other Notre Dame seniors to play in the STX North-South All-Star game include Kerry Callahan (1999), Lael O’Shaughnessy (2001) and Kathryn Lam and Tina Fedarcyk in 2002.
