Notre Dame Men's Lacrosse 2013 USILA All-Americans

For the ninth consecutive season the University of Notre Dame men’s lacrosse program has produced multiple United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) All-America honorees. Jim Marlatt (Jr./M) and Matt Miller (Sr./D) were named to the 2013 USILA All-America Third Team, while Matt Kavanagh (Fr./A) and John Kemp (Sr./G) were honorable mention selections.

Marlatt (Clarksville, Md./River Hill) was Notre Dame’s leading midfield scorer as he tallied 20 goals and 12 assists in addition to picking up 43 ground balls. He notched five multiple-goal games, including a career-high five-goal effort in the 13-5 season-opening victory at Duke. Marlatt had two goals and one assist in the 13-12 overtime win at Denver.

This is the second All-America citation for Marlatt, who received honorable mention accolades last season. He is a two-time first team all-BIG EAST honoree.

Miller (Warrenton, Va./Notre Dame Academy) was an anchor on a Fighting Irish defensive unit that was among the nation’s best all season long. Notre Dame finished the year with an 8.31 goals-against average, which currently ranks 10th nationally. Miller picked up 28 ground balls and was named first team all-BIG EAST. The Fighting Irish captain was an honorable mention All-American last season.

Miller recently was named a USILA Scholar All-American and also is a finalist for the Senior CLASS Award. He was selected to play in Friday’s USILA/LAXWORLD North/South Game. The Rochester Rattlers selected Miller in the sixth round (44th overall) of January’s Major League Lacrosse (MLL) Draft.

Kavanagh (Rockville Centre, N.Y./Chaminade/Hotchkiss) registered a stellar rookie season with the Irish as he led the team in goals (32) and assists (16). The 32 goals are the most ever for a Notre Dame freshman. Kavanagh combined to post seven goals and three assists in Notre Dame’s two NCAA Championship contests. He had four goals in the first-round win over Detroit (9-7) and then tallied a game-high six points on three goals and three assists in the quarterfinal setback to Duke (12-11).
