PHILADELPHIA – Saint Joseph's junior midfielder Bridget Cerciello has been selected onto the 2019 Philadelphia Inquirer Academic All-Area Women’s Lacrosse Team, which is voted on by the sports information offices of the 28 area institutions from the Philadelphia metropolitan area. To be eligible, student-athletes must excel both on the field and in the classroom and maintain a cumulative academic GPA of 3.20 or greater.
A 2019 Atlantic 10 First Team and Academic All-Conference Team selection, Cerciello started all 19 games in the midfield this spring en route to 35 points (31g, 4a), 79 draw controls, 40 ground balls, and 18 caused turnovers. She went for two goals, seven draw controls, and four ground balls in the A-10 Tournament quarters vs. VCU and followed up with one goal, four draw controls, and two ground balls in the semis vs. UMass.
During the regular season, Cerciello scored five times against VCU and four times against Duquesne, adding eight draw controls in each victory, posted a hat trick against then-#17 Johns Hopkins, and scrapped for five ground balls at then-#13 Navy.
The junior team captain, a business intelligence and analytics major out of Center Valley, Pennsylvania, worked as an analytics intern with Logicworks (NYC) in Summer 2018 and will return for her senior campaign in 2020.
