GRANVILLE, Ohio – Senior Maddy Heher was recognized by the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) on Wednesday afternoon as the recipient of the 2019 Division III Community Awareness Award. She was joined by Delaware's Maggie McCarthy (Division I) and Amanda Dickerson of Pace University (Division II).

The Community Awareness Award recognizes those student-athletes who have contributed significantly to their community in a given academic year. These students have given their time and energy to support and develop athlete-community relations and have distinguished themselves from their peers.

Heher, a senior political science major, has displayed her work of service both on the Denison campus and in the local community. In response to a pair of student suicides on campus, Heher organized a Mental Health Awareness Day featuring mental health advocate Victoria Garrick, and a gathering for the International Community. She also organized her team's participation in the promotion and event support for the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) Walk in Athens, Ohio.

She has been an active volunteer for Big Brothers, Big Sisters for the past four years and helped plan a benefit game for the One Love Foundation. Heher also volunteered as a coach for Go Soccer, an organization that provides opportunities for children with developmental and physical disabilities to be active in a sports environment.

On the field, Heher rounded out her Denison career with 32 goals, 27 assists, and 12 ground balls during her senior season. Posting 11 multi-goal efforts in 2019, the native of Morristown, N.J. tallied a season-high four goals in Denison's 25-3 victory over DePauw on April 13. Heher leaves Granville with 93 goals, 59 assists, and 52 ground balls for her career.

Recently graduating magna cum laude, Heher is a member of the Pi Sigma Alpha political science honor society, a Dean's list student, and was named to both the NCAC and the IWLCA Academic Honor Rolls. She received the Live Learn Lead Tri Delta scholarship, the Clark and Irma Morrow scholarship, and was named a James T. Glerum Top 50 Scholar-Athlete for the past three years. Heher was recently named an IWLCA second-team All-Great Lakes Region selection.

During her four years at Denison, Heher collected 61 victories, four North Coast Athletic Conference championships, four conference tournament titles, and appeared in the NCAA Tournament in all four years. Head Coach Amanda Daniels continued to raise the bar in 2019 as she became the program's all-time winningest coach with 85 victories in six seasons with the Big Red and moved Denison's NCAC regular season winning streak to 37 games dating back to April 11, 2015.
