Lenoir-Rhyne’s Rachel Elmore has been selected to the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association All-South Region second team, according to a press release from LRU Athletics.

Elmore, a senior midfielder, ranked second in the South Atlantic Conference and led the Bears with 62 goals this season. She finished her Lenoir-Rhyne career with 140 goals, 17 assists and a program-best 247 draw controls. Her scoring total trails only Lauren Donovan’s 167 goals for the most in program history.

This is the second straight year a Lenoir-Rhyne women’s lacrosse player has been named to the IWLCA all-region team after goalkeeper Ines Flueck was named to the second team last season.
