NCAA Lacrosse: Cornell Men’s Lacrosse Attacker Rob Pannell Named “2013 USILA Lt. Raymond J. Enners Award” As Oustanding Lacrosse Player

Cornell Men's Lacrosse Attacker Rob Pannell USILA Player of the Year

For the second time in his career, Cornell senior Rob Pannell has been named the USILA’s Lt. Raymond J. Enners Award as the Outstanding Men’s Lacrosse Player in Division I. He becomes the fifth two-time winner of the award and will lead the Big Red into the NCAA semifinals this weekend in Philadelphia, Pa.
Pannell joins a who’s who of lacrosse greats to take home the trophy twice in a career – Larry Quinn, Johns Hopkins (1984, 1985); Gary Gait, Syracuse (1988, 1990); Casey Powell, Syracuse (1997, 1998); Matt Danowski, Duke (2007, 2008).
Pannell, a two-time Tewaaraton Trophy finalist, has been named a first-team All-American in each of his past three seasons after earning a third-team selection as a freshman in 2009. He joins Paul Schimoler ’89, Ryan McClay ’03 and Max Seibald ’09 as the only Big Red men’s lacrosse players to earn four All-American honors during his career. Earlier this season, he became the first-ever three-time Ivy League Player of the Year in men’s lacrosse and just the fourth player in the history of Division I college lacrosse to be named conference player of the year three times during their career. He enters championship weekend with the NCAA career scoring lead within reach. He needs six points to match Danowski’s record of 343 points and seven points to break the record.
In his final campaign on East Hill, Pannell has matched or exceeded his career season highs with 53 assists, 42 goals and 95 points, just 10 points off the school single-season record. He has registered at least one point in a school-record 71 straight contests and has registered at least three points in 25 consecutive games. Pannell has registered at least three assists in 12-of-17 contests this season, handing out a season-high six assists last weekend against Ohio State in the NCAA quarterfinals. Pannell was named Ivy League Player of the Week four times during the season. A three-year Cornell team captain, he has led his team to a 56-15 overall record (21-3 Ivy League), four Ivy League titles, three Final Four appearances and a spot in the 2009 national championship game.

Denver Men's Lacrosse 2013 USILA All-Americans

University of Denver men’s lacrosse senior Cameron Flint (Georgetown, Ontario) was named First Team All-American by the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) today. This is the first time that a Pioneer was tabbed a first team selection.

Joining Flint on the list is senior Eric Law (Denver, Colo.), junior Jeremy Noble (Orangeville, Ontario) and sophomore Wesley Berg (Coquitlam, B.C.) as honorable mention selections.

For the third consecutive season, four Pioneers have received All-American recognition by the USILA. The team was voted on prior to the NCAA Tournament.

“For the Denver Pioneers, 2013 has been an amazing year and it thankfully continues into the NCAA Championship weekend,” said head coach Bill Tierney. “Whenever a team experiences great success, some of its individual players will rightfully be honored. Cam Flint, Eric Law and Wesley Berg have consistently led us to new heights.  Being named DU’s first, First Team All-American is a special honor that Cam deserves as he has been a force for us this year and throughout his career. Eric and Wesley have been inspirational in their play and leadership all season. Jeremy’s impact is obvious despite being hurt most of the season. We are thrilled to have him back on the field again. Most importantly, each of these young men is of such high character and put their team far ahead of individual accolades, as we continue to play in the last weekend of May.”

A captain and four-year starter, Flint was named a 2013 ECAC First Team selection and currently is third on the team with 50 points (36 g, 14 a). He was named Honorable Mention in 2012 and 2011. For his career, Flint is second among active DU student-athletes with 136 career points off 102 goals and 34 assists.

A captain and three-year starter, Law leads the Pioneers with 75 points off 40 goals and 35 assists. He leads all DU active players with 146 career points of 83 goals and 66 assists. He was also named to the All-ECAC Second Team this season.

Berg leads the Pioneers in goals this season with 56 and is second on the team in points (72). In his two-year career, Berg has amassed 109 points (third most among active DU players) off 82 goals and 27 assists. He was named to the All-ECAC First Team.

Ohio State Men's Lacrosse 2013 USILA All-Americans

Ohio State senior attackman Logan Schuss has been named a Second Team All-American and senior midfielder Dominique Alexander, sophomore midfielder Jesse King and junior defenseman Joe Meurer have been named Honorable Mention All-Americans by the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA), the organization announced Thursday.

Schuss is the first Buckeye named to a USILA first, second or third team twice and the first Ohio State player selected for the second team since Kevin Buchanan in 2008. Schuss is also the first Buckeye to earn USILA All-America accolades three times; he was an honorable mention selection as a freshman in 2010 (the first true freshman in Ohio State history named an All-American) and a third team pick in 2012 as a junior. Ten Buckeyes have earned USILA honors twice.

In Ohio State history, six Buckeyes including Schuss have been named to the USILA’s first, second or third teams. He joins Joe Bonanni (third team, 2012), Buchanan (second team, 2008), Greg Bice (second team, 2004), Skip Van Bourgondien (second team, 1971) and Glenn Rudy (third team, 1966).

Alexander, King and Meurer give Ohio State 39 USILA Honorable Mention All-America accolades all-time. The Buckeyes have had at least one All-America selection each year since 2008, totaling 13 in that span (two second team, two third team, nine honorable mention) and have 20 total honorees since 2000. This is the first time since 2008 and just the second time in program history four Ohio State players have been recognized by the USILA as All-Americans. The 1957 team ranks first with six honorable mention selections.

NCAA Lacrosse: Notre Dame Men’s Lacrosse Middie Jim Marlatt, Defenseman Matt Miller Named 2013 USILA Third Team All-Americans; Matt Kavanagh, John Kemp Named Honorable Mention

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).
