BALTIMORE—Two UMBC women's lacrosse players – seniors Rachel Pincus (New Market, Md./Linganore) and Kate Quick (Phoenix, Md./Maryvale Prep) – were named to the 2010 Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) Academic Honor Roll, the organization announced Monday.

Pincus, an attack, scored eight goals and tallied five assists in her career while also picking up seven ground balls, winning four draw controls and causing three turnovers. The team captain has also been recognized on the America East Honor Roll three times, and she graduated in May with a degree in new media and communication studies and American studies.

Quick, a goalkeeper, made 50 career starts, including all 18 contests in 2010. In more than 2,900 career minutes, she posted a 10.62 goals-against average and a .451 save percentage with 426 saves – which rank fourth all-time at UMBC – 105 ground balls and 48 caused turnovers. As a junior, the team captain led the America East with a .483 save percentage and ranked second with 8.41 saves per game en route to First-Team All-Conference and team co-MVP honors.

A two-time America East All-Academic Team selection, Quick has been recognized on the conference's academic honor roll each season. She graduated in May with a degree in psychology.

The IWLCA recognized 153 student-athletes from 63 different schools with inclusion on the 2010 Academic Honor Roll. Players must have achieved at least junior standing academically and have a minimum GPA of 3.5 or fall in the top 10 percent of their squad.
