DURHAM, N.C. – The Atlantic Coast Conference announced Tuesday the 2019 All-ACC Women’s Lacrosse Teams, with a pair of Blue Devils receiving all-conference recognition.
Senior attacker Olivia Jenner and sophomore attacker Charlotte North both earned All-ACC accolades for the second consecutive season, with Jenner being named to the all-conference first team and North receiving a nod on the second team.
After garnering All-ACC second team laurels last spring, Jenner has made the most of her senior season en route to collecting first team honors. She headlines a draw control unit that ranks third in the country with an average of 18 draws per game, and as an individual is also 10th nationally in the statistical category. The co-captain from Annapolis, Md., owns 114 draw controls on the year, making her the first player in program history to top 100 draws in each of her four seasons. She is second among all active Division I players with 476 career draw controls.
Jenner has also put together an impressive senior campaign on the attacking end, ranking second on the squad in goals (47) and points (68) and is tied for first in assists (21). Her totals in each offensive category mark career bests. Jenner’s play during the Blue Devils’ ACC slate was highlighted by a career-best six-goal performance March 30 against No. 4 Syracuse.
Following a record-setting rookie campaign in 2018, North has showed no signs of slowing her scoring pace this spring. She leads the Duke attack with 68 goals and 89 points and has ranked among the national leaders in both offensive categories throughout the season, coming in at second in the country this week in goals per game (4.25). The Dallas, Texas native is also approaching the program’s season goals and points records and owns a team-best 13 hat tricks in 16 contests – including a seven-goal performance March 10 at Louisville. Earlier this spring, North broke Duke’s single-game points record with an 11-point output Feb. 13 against Presbyterian.
North enters this week’s ACC Championship with a 21-game point-scoring streak that dates back to last April. She joins Jenner among the program’s all-time career scoring leaders after surpassing the 100-point and goal marks for her career this season. North was the fastest player in Duke history to reach both milestones.
Jenner, North and the 15th-ranked Blue Devils (9-7, 2-5 ACC) head to Chestnut Hill, Mass., as the ACC Championship’s No. 6 seed. Duke faces No. 3 seed Notre Dame in Wednesday’s quarterfinals, with the matchup slated for an 8 p.m. opening draw on RSN.
