AMHERST, Mass. -

AMHERST, Mass. - Concluding her career at UMass as one of the all-time great scoring threats, Katie Ferrisadded one more milestone to her career with IWLCA Second-Team All-America honors on Tuesday. In four years for the Maroon & White, Ferris became the all-time leading career point scorer (330), goal scorer (211) and assist leader (119) in program history. Her 330 points are the 15th most in the history of NCAA women's lacrosse.

The last UMass player to earn IWLCA Second-Team All-America honors was Cathy Furhman in 1989. Only three other players had been named to that squad: Lisa Griswold (1986), Chris Kocot (1987) and Sue Murphy (1988).

The All-America honor for Ferris was the third of her career making her the first Minutewoman to do so in program history - dating back to 1976. The native of Carthage, N.Y., earned third team accolades in 2012 and 2013.

Earlier this month, Ferris was named to the IWLCA All-Northeast Region First Team marking the third year she earned that distinction as well.

The senior attack was also a three-time Atlantic 10 Offensive Player of the Year, a four-year selection to the All-Atlantic 10 First Team, the 2011 A-10 Rookie of the Year, a three time pick on the A-10 All-Tournament Team, the 2014 A-10 Championship MVP and a two-time selection to the Tewarraton Watch List.

In addition to her career records, Ferris' 41 assists in 2014 were a career-high and a single-season UMass record. She holds three of the top-4 single-season point totals in program history with a school-record (and Atlantic 10 record) 98 in 2012. Her 85 points in 2014 stands at No. 2 for a single season, while her 75 is fourth-best all-time. She holds three spots on the all-time single-season goals list at No. 3 (59, 2012), No. 5 (56, 2011), and No. 5 (52, 2013). She originally set the single-season mark for assists in 2012 with 39 for the season before breaking that record this year.
