Dexter High School 2014 Women’s Lacrosse Academic All-American Players

The Dexter High School Women’s Lacrosse team capped off an outstanding athletic season with a strong academic finish: the team received Academic All-State honors and three players -- seniors Kerrigan Baird, Sabrina Meo, and junior Erin Dawson were named Academic All-Americans.

According to US Lacrosse, the national governing body of men’s, women’s, and youth lacrosse, All-American team members are players who exhibit superior skills and technique, possess exceptional game sense and knowledge, and embody excellent sportsmanship. These are among the best players in the United States. All-Academic team members exhibit exemplary lacrosse skills, demonstrate good sportsmanship on the field, and represent high standards of academic achievement as well as community involvement.

The team finished the season with a 15-6 record and a district championship—winning the SEC White Division 15-6 against Gross Pointe Woods University Liggett on May 22. This was the young program’s first ever playoff win, in their second season as a varsity sport. In 2014 the team had 13 regular season wins, compared with a total of 11 wins in the previous three years combined (including two years as a club sport).

Head Coach Mark Erber commented: “The academic success of this team is something the coaching staff was very proud of. Playing three games and practicing for twelve hours a week requires extraordinary time management skills. This team exemplifies the term ‘Student-Athlete.’ Erin, Sabrina and Kerrigan were excellent role models for the underclassmen.”

Dexter Community Schools Athletic Director Mike Bavineau added: “Congratulations to the women's lacrosse team for their academic and athletic achievements this season. Studies show that students who are physically active do better on standardized tests as well as complex memory tasks. The women’s lacrosse team is a great example for all our programs.”
