Taylor Named Third Team All-American

PHILADELPHIA - Temple lacrosse defender Courtney Taylor has been named Third Team All-American by the IWCLA, as announced Tuesday afternoon.

Taylor was named First-Team All-Region by the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) and earned Inside Lacrosse Media All-American Honorable Mention honors. The senior has had one of the best seasons in recent Temple lacrosse history and was invited to the 2021 USA Women's Lacrosse National Team tryouts next month.

Taylor led the nation in ground ball pickups (67) and finished second in caused turnovers (42). She also led all defenders in Lacrosse Reference's Expected Goals Allowed (ELO) stat for nearly the entire season by a wide margin.
