DePompeo Receives IWLCA All-South Region Honors
May 24, 2012
ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Junior attacker Jasmine DePompeo (Sayville, N.Y.) has been selected to represent the U.S. Naval Academy on the IWLCA All-South Region Second Team for the second consecutive season, it was announced Thursday. DePompeo is the only Midshipman in the five-year history of the program to earn an IWLCA All-Region accolade.
Navy is housed in the South Region, which is the most talented of the four regions, along with ACC schools Maryland, Duke, North Carolina and Virginia and the nation's top-ranked team, Florida. In 2011, 10 of the 17 First-Team All-Americans came from the South Region.
DePompeo was Navy's (18-3) leading scorer and helped the Mids win a third straight Patriot League Championship and advance to a third straight NCAA Tournament. DePompeo was named the Patriot League's Offensive Player of the Year and to the all-league first team for the second straight season as she helped Navy go undefeated in conference play (6-0) to earn its first outright regular season title.
DePompeo led Navy and the Patriot League with 92 points and 47 assists. She also had 45 goals and 18 ground balls. DePompeo scored at least five points in nine games this season and had a season-high nine points (five goals, four assists) in the team's regular season win over Holy Cross.
Always a key factor in Navy's biggest games, DePompeo had five points (four goals, one assist) in the NCAA First Round against North Carolina and tallied six points (four goals, two assists) and the game-tying goal in Navy's come-from-behind 10-9 overtime victory over Oregon in the NCAA Play-In Game.
With one weekend remaining in the 2012 women's lacrosse season, DePompeo ranks sixth in the nation in total points and seventh in overall assists. Her 47 assists this season established a Navy school record.
After three years of varsity play, DePompeo ranks second in program history with 209 points (113 goals, 96 assists).
Also a standout in the classroom, the political science major was recently selected to the CoSIDA Academic All-District II First Team for the second consecutive year and was named to the Patriot League All-Academic Team.
The IWLCA has honored 128 student-athletes in Division I with a selection on one of the All-Regional teams for 2012. These athletes are now eligible for inclusion on the IWLCA All-American Teams, which will be announced on May 27.
