3 Bulldogs Named to Face-Off Team

Johnson, Levings, McCormack Earn Pre-Season Honor

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – It may be 20 days before Christmas, but the first  lacrosse scrimmage for the Bulldogs is only a little more than two months away. That's why the prognosticators are busy figuring out the upcoming campaign, and three member of the Yale men's lacrosse team have been named to the 2013 Face-Off Yearbook Pre-Season All-America squad.

Two senior defensemen and a junior face-off man made the Face-Off team. Defenseman Peter Johnson (Minnetonka, Minn.) earned a third-team spot, while captain Michael McCormack and face-off specialist Dylan Levings (Massapequa, NY) were honorable mention.

Both defensemen were ranked among the nation's best in caused turnovers and helped the 2012 Elis earn their first NCAA Tournament berth in 20 years. The Blue had a nine-game win streak after capturing their first Ivy League Tournament title at Princeton last May.

Levings, ranked among the top five in the nation all year with a .632 face-off mark, and Johnson were USILA honorable mention All-Americans last spring.
