She was on the dean’s list and athletic director’s honor roll throughout her career, and was a CAA Scholar-Athlete selection.

O’Garrow recently was a third-team selection to the Brine/Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) Division I All-America team, and was a second-team selection to the South Region All-America team, the second straight year she received that honor. She also was selected to the All-CAA first team, and was named the CAA “Defender of the Year” this spring. She started all 16 games and ranked third this spring with 37 points, second with 16 assists, and tied for third with 21 goals. She led George Mason with 64 ground balls and 34 caused turnovers. For her career, she had 65 goals and 27 assists for 92 points in 61 games, including 58 starts. She is George Mason’s career leader with 214 ground balls and 115 caused turnovers, and she tied for third in goals and fifth in points.

George Mason finished the 2000 season with an overall record of 7-9, 4-2, and is in third place in the CAA. Ranked as high as 11th in the nation during mid-March, the Patriots were ranked 19th in the final IWLCA poll.
