GREENSBORO, N.C. - Four Terrapins were named to the All-Atlantic Coast Conference Academic Team for women's lacrosse, announced by league commissioner John Swofford on Monday.

An IWLCA First Team All-American, Griffin helped quarterback the Terrapins’ dynamic attack with 86 points in 2014. The kinesiology major boasted 62 goals and 24 assists and was tabbed ACC Championship Most Valuable Player after guiding the Terps to wins against Virginia Tech, Virginia and Syracuse in the ACC tournament.

Majorana, a sophomore letters & science major, appeared in 20 games and made seven starts in 2014. She recorded 20 goals and 14 assists and also posted six ground balls, one draw control and three caused turnovers.

Stukenberg was named ACC Co-Freshman of the Year after shining for the Terrapins in her first season in College Park. The biological sciences major posted 47 points on 35 goals and 12 assists and added 21 ground balls and 23 draw controls as a rookie.
