Harvard’s Jennifer VanderMeulen picked up another postseason honor over the weekend. The sophomore attacker was named second-team All-America by Synapse Sports. Earlier this month, VanderMeulen was named first-team All-Ivy and first-team All-Northeast Region.
The Liverpool, N.Y., native led the Crimson and the Ivy League in scoring with 48 goals this spring. She averaged 3.0 goals per game which also led the league and was 18th in the nation. Her 48 goals this season were 30th among Division I players.
She scored 100th career goal in regular season finale against Dartmouth and has a total of 104 on the season, good enough for 10th on the Crimson all-time scoring list. VanderMeulen had three or more goals 12 times and four or more five times.
This is VanderMeulen’s second All-America honor from Synapse Sports, formerly WomensLacrosse.com. Last year, she was a third-team selection.
Harvard finished the 2011 season with the most overall wins (10) and most Ivy victories (5) since 1994. The Crimson knocked off two nationally ranked opponents this spring and advanced to the Ivy League Championship game.
