June 5, 1998
BALTIMORE, Md - Senior lacrosse captains Kara Ariza (Lansdowne, Pa./Penn Wood) and Peggy Boutilier (Baltimore, Md/Roland Park Country) will play in the IWLCA North/South Senior All-Star game at Towson University on Saturday, June 6 at 6:00 pm in the final appearance for both in their collegiate careers. The United States teammates will be honored at the All-American banquet earlier in the day.
Boutilier, a senior from Baltimore, Maryland, led the Cavaliers in goals scored and ground ball pickups. She was named to the United States national lacrosse team earlier this year. Although she is primarily a defensive player, having been named the National Defensive Player of the Year in 1997, Boutilier exploded offensively this year, scoring a career-high 25 goals. Boutilier also recorded two games in which she scored a career-high five goals, including against then-#2 and undefeated Princeton and then-#6 James Madison. Her 42 points on the season is a career high.
Boutilier did not lose any of her defensive prowess as she still anchored a Cavalier defense that is ranked first in the county in scoring defense, allowing only 6.00 goals per game. Boutilier also ranked third at Virginia in caused turnovers and second in draw controls. Her selection to the All-Conference team was her second such selection in the two years the conference has sponsored a team. She set a school record with her 71st consecutive start which took place in the national championship game, which is also the record for most games played in a career. She already holds the record for consecutive starts and games played in field hockey with 88. She was also a first-team All-American in 1997.
Ariza, a member of the United States national lacrosse team, is also making her second appearance on the first-team All-American squad. Ariza ranked in the top five of all statistical categories for the Cavaliers in 1998, including second in goals and caused turnovers, and fifth in draw controls. She has five game-winning goals on the season and has notched four hat tricks while leading Virginia in scoring in five games. She is also a part of the nations top-rated defense and plays a pivotal role in helping Virginia have the conferences top scoring margin. She was also an IWLCA First-team All-American in 1997. She shares the 71 games played record with Boutilier.
