Fry Selected to Patriot League All-Academic Team

Senior Sydney Fry vs. Holy Cross (4/20/2019)

CENTER VALLEY, Pa. - Postseason awards continue to roll in for the American University lacrosse team on Wednesday as senior Sydney Fry was selected for the Academic All-Patriot League Team by the league's lacrosse sports information directors.

To be eligible for the Scholar-Athlete of the Year and Academic All-Patriot League Team, a student-athlete must have at least a 3.20 cumulative grade point average and be a starter or key player in his/her sport. Freshmen or students in their first academic year at their school are not eligible for the honor.

Fry, a neuroscience major with a cumulative GPA of 3.80, is the 10th AU lacrosse player to earn a spot on the Academic All-League team, and the first since Sarah Bootman in 2017.

The Raleigh, N.C., native was a three-year starter on defense for the Eagles and, in her senior season, helped lead the team to its winningest season since 2013 with a 7-10 overall record, narrowly missing the program's first postseason berth in six years.

She was also selected for the 2019 American University Athletics Senior Leadership Award for her involvement across campus and as a captain on the Eagles' lacrosse squad. 

A three-year Patriot League Academic Honor Roll selection, she closed her career with 96 ground balls and 38 caused turnovers.
