LAUREN GOODWIN ’04 and CARYN STONE ’07 were honorable mention selections to the 2004 All-Old Dominion Athletic Conference women’s lacrosse team, the league announced April 30. This marks the third consecutive year that two Guilford players have been honored on the league’s all-star teams.
Goodwin, a 5-0 attacker, was one of three players to start all 13 games for the Quakers. She led the team in ground balls (42), was ranked fifth in goals (10) and tied for third in assists (4). Goodwin achieved season-highs of two goals and two assists in a win over Hollins, the final home game of her career.
Goodwin has played many roles for the Quakers during her career. She began her career as a goalie, accumulating the school’s ninth-highest saves total in 2001 before moving to defense her second year. She moved to attack for her junior season, where she remained this year. Amidst the changes, Goodwin was very consistent, starting 58 of Guilford’s 59 games during her career. She leaves with 25 goals and 16 assists in her career.
Stone, a 5-5 midfielder, appeared in 13 games for the Quakers, starting the final 11. She ranked fourth on the team in goals (11) and third in ground balls (33) and caused turnovers (14). She tied for third on the team with Goodwin in assists and draw controls (11). Stone had her best game of the season against Hollins, when she led the team with five goals, seven ground balls and five caused turnovers in the victory.
Coach TARA CAMINITI-RAGGETT’s Quakers finished the season with a 4-9 record, 2-6 in the ODAC. The team’s season ended with a loss to Virginia Wesleyan in the quarterfinals of the ODAC Tournament. Seven letter winners, including Stone, are expected to return next season.

STEVEN S. SHAPIRO, an assistant professor of physics, will assume additional responsibilities as associate academic dean July 1. He will succeed JIM HOOD ’79, an associate professor of English who was associate academic dean the past three years.
In this faculty-appointed position, Shapiro will have oversight for student advising, advising workshops for faculty, as well as student academic issues and transfer student issues. He will be a member of the team that prepares for Guilford’s forthcoming Southern Association of Colleges and Schools accreditation review.
“Steve is well-suited for the role of associate academic dean,” said ADRIENNE ISRAEL, vice president and academic dean. “He is energetic, well-organized, and knows how to promote high academic standards and enforce college policy while maintaining the respect of students, staff and faculty. He has many good ideas for building upon the work done by Jim Hood over the past three years; and although I will miss working with Jim, I look forward to Steve’s joining us in the dean’s office.”
Shapiro joined the Guilford faculty in 1995 and was tenured in 2001. He chaired the physics department during the 2001-02 and 2003-04 academic years and served on the college’s admission committee from 1996-2002, including the last five years as chair.
In addition to teaching at Guilford, Shapiro has conducted research at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in Cambridge, Mass., each summer since 1996 and throughout his sabbatical during the 2002-03 academic year.
