NAC Men's Lacrosse All-Conference Announced

Castleton junior attackman Zach Davidson was selected as the North Atlantic Conference Men's Lacrosse Player of the Year in a vote of the conference coaches, headlining the league's all-conference teams. It is the second-straight Player of the Year award for Davidson, who began his career with the conference Rookie of the Year crown.

Davidson led the league with 66 points and 36 goals in eight conference contests, while ranking second with 30 assists.  Joining him on the All-Conference First Team as attackmen are teammate Alex Green and New England College's Adam Shute.

Castleton's league-leading defense was anchored by Defensive Player of the Year Peter Latulippe. The 2013 Rookie of the Year, Latulippe allowed a paltry 18 goals in 250-plus minutes of conference action for a league-low 4.28 goals against average. The sophomore goalie also saved 60 percent of the shots he faced, ranking him second amongst his peers, while earning him a spot on the first team.

The All-Conference First Team defensemen are made up of Owen Hartmen of Castleton, Ian Larcom of Maine Maritime, and Husson's Mark Nardelli.

Maine Maritime's Nicholas Betti and Bronson Guimond, and Nick Herzog of New England College make up the midfield selections, while Herzog's teammate Pat Miles earned a spot on the first team at Long Stick Midfielder, and Maine Maritime's Jack Tragert was named the league's top faceoff specialist.

Peter Moore was named the league's top rookie, as the Maine Maritime freshman capped of a season in which he was named Rookie of the Week three times, tallying 33 points on 14 goals and 19 assists.

Maine Maritime Head Coach Adam Sherman was named Coach of the Year after leading the Mariners to a 6-2 campaign in conference play, and earning the third seed in the conference tournament.

Husson was honored with the Team Sportsmanship Award.

All-conference selections are determined by a vote of the conference coaches. Extra spots on all-conference teams are awarded due to ties in voting. Players can be nominated, and honored, at more than one position.
