More Awards For Bulldogs

USILA All-Stars, Academic All-American, NEILA Selections

 

NEW HAVEN, Conn. –   The awards keep rolling in for members of the Yale men's lacrosse team. Two seniors were named to the North team in the USILA All-Star Game while four Bulldogs earned All-New England honors.

Brandon Mangan, an attackman currently trying to make the New York Lizards' roster, was named to the all-star game around the same time his name appeared on the All-New England's first team. He notched 23 goals and 45 points this season as the Bulldogs went 9-5.

His classmate, face-off specialist Dylan Levings will join him on the North team. Levings, who was drafted by the Chesapeake Bayhawks, also hopes to play in the MLL. Yale's top man on the X the last three years was an honorable mention All-Ivy selection this year and is a finalist for the One Foundation's Unsung Hero Award. Levings and captain Jimmy Craft also earned NEILA Academic All-Region status, while the face-off man was selected to the prestigious USILA Scholar All-American list.

Mangan and Levings head to Baltimore for the May 26 Division I/II All-Star contest at M&T Bank Stadium at 10 a.m., a few hours prior to the national championship game.

Tickets for the NCAA Lacrosse Championships include admission to the North-South All-Star Game and can be purchased by going to NCAA.com/Lacrosse or by calling 410-261-7283 for more information.

Joining Mangan on the All-New England first-team are junior Conrad Oberbeck and sophomore Michael Quinn.  Oberbeck, a first-team All-Ivy attackman, led the Blue with 38 goals and 50 points this spring and was named team offensive MVP.  Quinn was Yale's defensive MVP, scooping up 37 ground balls and causing 18 turnovers.

The other Eli to earn NEILA honors was sophomore midfielder Mark Glicini, who was a second-team pick.
