BRIDGEWATER, Mass. – Bridgewater State University senior midfielder Elizabeth Ettridge has been selected to the 2018-2019 Google Cloud NCAA Division III Academic All-District® One Women’s At-Large Team by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
A four-time All-MASCAC Women’s Lacrosse First Team selection, Ettridge is making her second straight appearance on the CoSIDA Academic All-District® Team as she also earned the honor in 2017-2018. The Marshfield, Massachusetts product tallied 57 goals and eight assists for 65 points in 2019 to go along with 26 ground balls, 33 draw controls and 17 caused turnovers. She ranked second in the Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference (MASCAC) in goals and fifth in scoring.
In 73 games over four seasons with the Bears, Ettridge amassed 205 goals and 45 assists for 250 points in addition to 92 ground balls, 134 draw controls and 54 caused turnovers. She is sixth all-time in program history in goals and tenth in scoring.
Academically, the secondary education and history major has maintained a stellar 3.98 grade point average over her first seven semesters and has been on the Dean’s List in every semester during her time at Bridgewater State. Ettridge is a member of Chi Alpha Sigma (student-athlete honor society) and a three-time member of the MASCAC Spring All-Academic Team.
When not on the field or in the classroom, Ettridge spends her time volunteering as a lacrosse coach for youth clinics in her hometown of Marshfield. In July, she plans to volunteer again at the All-In Lacrosse Clinic in Hingham. The proceeds of the clinic go to the “All In All The Time” Foundation, which provides financial relief to families of fallen Navy SEALs.
Ettridge will also be serving as an assistant coach for the girls lacrosse team at her alma mater, Marshfield High School, for the remainder of the 2019 season and will be student-teaching in the fall.
Earlier this month, Ettridge was named the Dr. Adrian Tinsley Female Scholar-Athlete of the Year for the second consecutive year by the Bridgewater State Department of Athletics & Recreation.
