The Lenoir-Rhyne Men’s Lacrosse Team earned six All-American members announced by USA Lacrosse on Wednesday. That tally is good enough for the second-most recipients by a single program; LR only trailed Tampa, who had seven total selections.

Attacker Evan Voss, the junior from Powder Springs, Ga., was named to the second team after being one of the three LR players to have scored 20 or more goals in season. The 2023 NCAA Most Outstanding Player also has the most assists on the team with 23.

Short-Stick Midfielder Colten McCracken, the senior from Middletown, Md., once again earned second team All-American status. The First Team All-SAC member ranks No. 5 on the team with 26 ground balls and 10 caused turnovers.

Goalkeeper Rob Pensabene, the senior from Mount Laurel, N.J., received Second Team All-American honors with a 14-1 record in between the pipes. In his 16 appearances, Pensabene ranks No. 2 in Division II with a goals against average of 7.34 and No. 4 in the nation with a .609 save percentage.

Defender Nate Ashley, the senior from Bradenton, Fla., was selected as an All-American for the second-straight season after being named an honorable mention in 2023. The Second Team All-SAC member is No. 2 on the team with 19 caused turnovers.

Defender Joey Masson, the senior from Ijamsville, Md., was the lone Bear to be named an honorable mention All-American. The Second Team All-SAC member ranks No. 4 on the team with 11 caused turnovers and No. 7 on the Bears with 22 ground balls.

The Lenoir-Rhyne Men’s Lacrosse Team will return to action for the NCAA Semifinal on Sunday, May 19 at 1 p.m. The Bears are slated to visit No. 1 Tampa in Tampa, Fla.
