Four members of the Florida lacrosse team racked up more postseason accolades as the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association announced All-American teams on Tuesday.

Shannon Kavanagh was tabbed as a First Team All-American, Sarah Reznick and Cara Trombetta were both named as Second Team All-Americans, while Grace Haus earned Third Team accolades.

This is the second such honor for Kavanagh – with her earning Second Team honors in the 2019 season. Trombetta earned the third IWLCA All-American honor of her career – picking up Second Team honors in 2018 and Third Team accolades in 2019.

Reznick and Haus each picked up the first IWLCA nod of their Florida careers.

Kavanagh (First), Reznick (Second), and Trombetta (First) were also each named ILWomen All-Americans in May.

The Gators finished the 2021 season with an 18-3 record, going undefeated in American Athletic Conference play (10-0). The team swept both the regular season championship (10th straight) and tournament championship (seventh straight). UF made its first NCAA Quarterfinal appearance since the 2018 season after defeating Mercer and Jacksonville in the first and second rounds of the NCAA Tournament.
