Alyssa Milano named IWLCA second-team All-American

OLD WESTBURY, N.Y. — NYIT alum Alyssa Milano is a second-team All-American.

The Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association named Milano to the squad on Tuesday.

Milano previously had earned East Coast Conference Attacker of the Year honors. She departed NYIT with a program-record 145 career goals over two seasons.

Milano graduated last month with a bachelor's degree in business management.

She becomes the third All-American in program history. Erin Smith and Karie Znaniecki also received second-team recognition from the IWLCA a year ago.

"It's an honor being selected as an All-American," Milano said. "I could not think of a better way to end my lacrosse career with NYIT. I couldn't have done it without my coaches and teammates."
