USILA Unveils Division I All-Americans; Spencer Named Player of Year


Loyola's Pat Spencer, who finished his career as the NCAA’s all-time leader with 231 assists and as the No. 2 all-time scorer with 380 points, won the Lt. Raymond J. Enners Award as the most outstanding player  in Division I.

Loyola’s Pat Spencer has been named the national player of the year by the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association, which released its annual All-American teams and award winners Thursday.

Spencer, who finished his career as the NCAA’s all-time leader with 231 assists and as the No. 2 all-time scorer with 380 points, won the Lt. Raymond J. Enners Award as the most outstanding player  in Division I.

Penn State’s Grant Ament, Army’s Johnny Surdick, UMass’ Sean Sconone and Towson’s Zach Goodrich won the remaining awards.

Ament, who owns the NCAA single-season record with 91 assists going into this weekend’s national semifinal against Yale, earned the Lt. Col. J.I. Turnbull Award given to the nation’s top attackman.

Surdick won the William C. Schmeisser Award as defensive player of the year, Sconone took home the Ensign C. Markland Kelly Jr. award for outstanding goalie, and Goodrich got the nod for the Lt. j.g. Donald MacLaughlin Jr. Award as the top midfielder.

The USILA All-American teams are listed below. Virginia, making its first NCAA semifinal appearance since 2011 this weekend, leads all schools with three first-team selections. Fellow final four participants Penn State and Duke landed two players each on the first team, as did Loyola.
