2018 National Champs Have Impressive List of Honors

 

BALTIMORE, Md. – Yale not only won its first NCAA Men's Lacrosse National Championship this spring, the Bulldogs also took national classroom honors. The USILA came out with its list of scholar All-Americans today, and the Elis had the most with five.

 

Jason Alessi, Christopher Keating, Conor Mackie, Ben Reeves and Tyler Warner, all of whom graduated in May and were Major League Lacrosse Draft Picks, earned the USILA distinction two weeks after beating Duke to win the 2018 NCAA championship at Foxborough, Mass.

 

These honors add to an already unprecedented list of accolades accumulated by a squad that won a school-record 17 games, captured an Ivy League Championship and went on an historic NCAA Tournament run.
