Lenoir-Rhyne Men’s Lacrosse Earn Seven All-Region Honors
Lenoir-Rhyne had seven players represented on the All-South Region as announced by the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA). The Bears are the South Region champs after defeating Limestone 18-11 in the National Semifinal on Sunday and are on to the National Championship game against Mercyhurst on Sunday at 1 p.m. in Philadelphia.
Toron Eccleston, Colten McCracken and Riley Seay earned spots on the First Team All-Region. Eccleston’s 57 goals this season are the second-most in a single season in program history and his 84 points rank third. Eccleston became just the fourth player in program history to reach 200 career points and did so in the SAC Championship game against Limestone. McCracken earned a first team selection as a defensive midfielder with his four goals and five assists along with 32 ground balls and nine caused turnovers. Thanks in large part to McCracken’s defense, the Bears rank in the top five in the nation in fewest goals allowed per game. Seay, a transfer from Loyola, was great in his first year at LR and has 32 goals and 16 assists as a midfielder. He scored the game-winning goal in overtime to defeat Limestone 18-17 in the regular season.
Victor Powell was a Second Team selection despite missing six games due to injury. Powell, one of the best defenders in the nation, has 25 caused turnovers and 28 ground balls in his 14 games played and was a First Team All-Conference selection.
Myles Moffat was named to the Third Team and is second all-time in program history in goals and points and first in team history in assists.
Bryce Reece and Nate Ashley were named to the Honorable Mention All-Region team.
In SAC accolades, LR had a record 11 players named All-Conference. All-American list will be released on Friday at noon.
