FOUR W&L MEN'S LACROSSE PLAYERS EARN ALL-AMERICA HONORS

LEXINGTON, Va. -- The Washington and Lee men's lacrosse team was showered with postseason praise as four Generals were named to the STX/USILA All-America Lacrosse Team.

Sophomore attackman Matt Dugan (Rockaway, N.J./Mountain Lakes) was a second team selection, while sophomore midfielder Pope Hackney (Richmond, Va./St. Christopher's) and sophomore defensemen Pete Iwancio (Baltimore, Md./Loyola) earned third team honors. Junior defensemen Charlie Antrim (Richmond, Va./St. Christopher's) was named to the honorable mention team.

Dugan produced one of the best seasons in W&L lacrosse history, totaling 57 goals and 27 assists for 84 points en route to being named the Old Dominion Athletic Conference Player of the Year. His 57 single-season goals are second all-time at W&L and his 84 single-season points are third all-time. Dugan currently stands 14th on the career points list at W&L (140).

Hackney earned First Team All-ODAC honors in 1999 after tallying 27 goals and 10 assists for 37 points. He was fourth on the team in scoring.

Iwancio and Antrim helped to anchor a W&L defense that allowed just 20.4 shots and 5.20 goal per game on the season. Iwancio gathered 30 ground balls, while Antrim, a tri-captain, collected 20 ground balls. Both were First Team All-ODAC selections this past season.

W&L finished the 1999 season with a 13-2 overall record and a No. 2 national ranking. The Generals were 6-0 in the ODAC and claimed their first ODAC Championship since the 1995 season. W&L will return each All-American and 32 of 38 players off of the 1999 roster, including each of its top nine scorers, two starting defensemen, and the top two goalkeepers.
