Yale Junior Earns National Honor
BALTIMORE,Md. – He scored three goals or more in nine of Yale's 14 games this spring on the way to a team-high 38 goals and 50 points. The United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) recognized his offensive production in naming Conrad Oberbeck to its All-America team.
Oberbeck, a junior attackman, earned honorable mention status on that USILA list, his first national recognition. He had already been named to the first teams for the Ivy League and New England while grabbing team offensive MVP honors.
The Greenwich, Conn., native enjoyed his most productive day as a Bulldog in a 13-7 win at Michigan on April 19. Oberbeck scored six times, which tied his career-high, and handed out two assists for a career-best eight-point day.
His other big-number days came against Fairfield (4-1-5), Princeton (3-3-6) and Providence (3-2-5).
With Yale fighting for a post-season spot, Oberbeck's production increased. In fact, 15 of his 38 goals came over the last four games, including six over a pair (regular season finale, Ivy tournament) of contests against Harvard.
