DURHAM, N.C. – Two Blue Devils have been selected for All-America accolades by Inside Lacrosse, as released by the publication Friday.

Junior attacker and draw specialist Olivia Jenner was named to the 2018 IL Media All-America first team while rookie attacker Charlotte North took home honorable mention recognition.

Also a second team Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association All-South Region and second team All-ACC honoree this spring, Jenner received All-America laurels for the first time in her career. The Annapolis, Md., native led Duke at the draw for the third consecutive year, with her 149 draw controls topping the ACC and tying her for third nationally. Jenner surpassed her own program single season record of 110 draw controls in April and became the Blue Devils’ all-time career draw controls leader in March. With 362 career draw controls, she currently ranks fourth in the category among all Division I players nationwide.

Jenner also excelled on the attacking end this spring, ranking second on the team in goals (31) and third in points (44).

North etched her name in the Duke record books as a rookie, breaking the program’s freshman goals and points records. She led the squad in both categories, totaling 59 goals and 64 points in 17 contests. North rounded out the season with a team-high 12 hat tricks and ranks second in the ACC with an average of 3.47 goals per game. During the course of the season, she twice earned ACC Offensive Player of the Week accolades following a strong output in wins over Campbell (Feb. 16) and No. 11 Northwestern (Feb. 18) and an eight-goal showing against Louisville (March 10) that broke Duke’s single-game scoring record.
