U.S. Lacrosse has named Chloë Lewis, a 2015 graduate of Durham Academy and incoming Duke University lacrosse team member, first-team All-America. Lewis is among just six North Carolina players to be named to the team, which includes athletes from both independent and public schools.
Head girls lacrosse coach Debbie Rebosa — who said she's "so proud of her" — noted that Lewis is DA's first-ever girls lacrosse player to receive the first-team honor. Naomi Lerner '14, who now plays at UNC-Chapel Hill, was named All-America honorable mention in 2014.
"I feel incredibly honored to be recognized by U.S. Lacrosse as an All-American!" Lewis said. "I am grateful to my amazing coaches and teammates who have helped push me to be better every day."
The All-America honor is strictly in recognition of play on the field. Selection criteria include having played in two-thirds of games; having not exceeded an allotted number of penalty points; and having started and made significant contributions to their team's success.
Lewis was also named to U.S. Lacrosse's 2015 All-Academic team; is a four-time NCISAA All-State player; and was named 2015 TISAC Player of the Year. She also lettered in swimming and has been named All-State and team MVP in field hockey.
