Nov. 1, 2017


CENTER VALLEY, Pa. -- Lafayette field hockey's Lisa van der Geest was named to the Academic All-Patriot League Team, the League office announced on Wednesday afternoon.

The sophomore shined in the classroom and on the field for the Leopards and as one of 11 student athletes to earn Academic All-League honors from the Patriot League.

van der Geest wrapped up her second season on College Hill by leading the team in assists with six, which was good for 10th in the Patriot League. The Netherlands native chipped in with two goals to finish tied for third on the team with 10 points. She contributed on both ends of the field for the Leopards all season.

This is her first Academic All-League Team nod, after being named to the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll in 2016. Earlier this week, van der Geest earned her second-straight All Patriot League Second-Team selection. Off the field, the sophomore holds a 3.59 GPA.
