Recent Exeter graduates Cara and Leah Jones capped their distinguished careers with honor as US Lacrosse has named them to the Girls Lacrosse All-American team.

The twin defensive duo, who helped lead Big Red to a 34-2-1 record over the past two seasons, will make the jump to Ivy League play next season when they head to Columbia University to continue their academic and athletic careers.

“Cara and Leah were dependable low defenders for us, playing nearly every minute of every game during their three-year career at Exeter,” said head coach Christina Breen. “Their ability to lead and execute on the field was a key factor for us to be successful.”

Big Red finished their 2017 season with a 16-1-1 mark, including a big 11-4 victory over Andover in the season finale.
