NEW LONDON, Conn.— The Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) has announced the rosters for the 2017 Senior All-Star games for Division I, II, and III and Connecticut College senior Tina Balzotti of Duxbury, Mass. has been named to the squad.
The 44 players selected in each Division have been divided into two teams: North and South. The Senior All-Star games will be held on Tierney Field at US Lacrosse Headquarters in Sparks, Md. on Saturday, June 3, 2017. The Division I teams will play the first game at 11:30 am, the Division II game will follow at 12:45 pm, and the Division III teams will cap off the event with their game at 2:00 pm. Admission for all three games is free of charge. The games will also be web-streamed live on IWLCA-tv.com.
Earlier this month, Balzotti was named to the IWLCA All-Berkshires Region Second Team for the second consecutive year.
A captain and leader at the attack position, Balzotti proved to be one of the most explosive offensive players for the Camels in recent history. Balzotti tallied her 100th point to lead the Camels past Eastern Connecticut State March 28. She exploded with 46 goals scored her senior year to finish fifth in the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) while ranking 11th in the conference with 48 points.
With her 108 collegiate markers, Balzotti finished up her career tied for eighth place on the program's scoring list with Katelyn Driscoll '12 of Peabody, Mass. She doled out 22 assists to finish in 12th place in the Camel annals with 128 points.
Balzotti was named to the IWLCA Zag Sports All-Academic Team this past year and has been honored on the NESCAC All-Academic squad for her excellence in the classroom in each of the past three years. Balzotti received the 2016 Charles and Ruth Polan Internship Award from the College. She received her degree in government.
