AMHERST, Mass. – Ninety-two senior men's lacrosse student-athletes have earned selection to the 2018 New England Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (NEILA) Academic All-New England teams.
Members of the team are nominated by head coaches in Divisions I, II and III, and are comprised of student-athletes who have excelled both in the classroom and on the field over the course of their men's lacrosse career.
Forty-six student-athletes from 20 different Division 3 institutions met the criteria, which required that nominees must have senior standing, a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better on a 4.0 scale, and be a significant enough player that he was nominated for at least All-Conference selection.
Bowdoin College led all institutions with eight candidates this year, followed by Harvard University, who had seven All-Academic selections. Fellow Division 1 member Yale University had six nominees as Division 1 was represented by 31 student-athletes from nine NEILA member schools.
Fifteen student-athletes from seven Division II schools were honored, led by five selections from Saint Michael's (VT), a number matched by Springfield College in Division III.
