W&L's ANTRIM AND BROWN NAMED USILA SCHOLAR ALL-AMERICANS

GENEVA, N.Y. -- Washington and Lee senior men's lacrosse players Charlie Antrim (Richmond, Va./St. Christopher's) and Chris Brown (Towson, Md./Towson) have been named to the 2000 United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association's (USILA) Scholar All-America team. A total of 24 Division I, II, and III athletes were named to the team.

The award recognizes senior lacrosse players that have a cumulative grade-point average above 3.2 on a 4.0 scale and have been named to the USILA All-America team or have been chosen to participate in the North-South Senior All-Star game.

Antrim, an economics major, earned First Team All-ODAC and Third Team All-America laurels for the 2000 season after spearheading a defense that allowed just 5.78 goals per game, third-best in Division III.

Brown, also an economics major, earned First Team All-ODAC and Honorable Mention All-America honors from his attack position during the 2000 season. He was second on the team in scoring with 70 points on 48 goals and 22 assists and ended his career 13th all-time at W&L in career scoring (151 pts.) and fifth in career goals (117).

Both Brown and Antrim had been selected to participate in the North-South All-Star game at the University of Delaware on June 9.

W&L finished the 2000 season with a 16-2 overall record and a No. 4 national ranking. The Generals set a new school record for victories and advanced the the NCAA Division III Tournament Semifinals where they were defeated by top-ranked Salisbury State, 10-9. It was W&L's first trip to the semifinals since the 1987 season.
