AACC Lacrosse Team Ranked 3rd in Nation
Lacrosse Magazine selected an Anne Arundel Community College student athlete the preseason lacrosse player of the year for the junior college division for the second consecutive year when it named Meghenn Jackson of Arnold as its top women’s player. The magazine also ranked the 2013 AACC women’s lacrosse team third in the nation.
Jackson, a midfielder who played at Broadneck High School, is a returning first-team All-American who had 91 goals and 21 assists to finish second in the nation in points with 112. She also was the leading scorer as a forward on AACC’s Women’s Soccer team this past fall with 49 total points.
The team will continue under the leadership of Coach Jim Griffiths in his 10th season. At 126-25, Griffiths has the best coaching record in NJCAA history for women’s lacrosse since it became a sanctioned sport in 2004, his first year as head coach. During his nine-year tenure he won back-to-back national championships in 2006 and 2007, and took the runner-up trophy in 2004, 2005 and 2011. Griffiths is also the head coach for the AACC women’s soccer and cross country teams.
