Mercyhurst men’s lacrosse player Andrew Wagner was named to USILA’s All-American first team for the second straight year, while teammates Brian Scheetz and Zac Reid were named to the second team and honorable mention, respectively.

Wagner, a junior defender, totaled 25 groundballs and 11 caused turnovers while also consistently defending opposing teams’ top offensive performers this season.

Scheetz, a senior attackman, leads the top-ranked Lakers (18-0) with 72 points (26 goals, 46 assists) while also collecting 36 groundballs. Reid, a senior midfielder, has 29 goals – including seven in an 18-17 overtime win against second-ranked Limestone in the NCAA Division II semifinals this past Saturday — and 43 points.

The Lakers, which have recorded All-Americans in 10 straight years and 13 honorees overall in program history, face third-ranked Le Moyne (17-2) in the national championship game Sunday at 1 p.m. at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.
