WHITE AND CAMERON-CARTER AMONG FIVE DOLPHINS TO RECEIVE USILA ALL-AMERICA HONORS
Perry, N.Y. – Junior goalkeeper Jeff White (Buffalo, N.Y./Canisius HS) and junior defenseman Alex Cameron-Carter (Manlius, N.Y./Fayetteville-Manlius) of the Le Moyne College men's lacrosse team have earned USILA First Team All-America honors, as announced by the association on InsideLacrosse.com. Graduate student midfielder Tyler Sennett (Syracuse, N.Y./Nottingham) and junior attackman Tyler Prevost (Watertown, N.Y./Immaculate Heart) were named to the second team, while junior defenseman Josh Klepfer (Binghamton, N.Y./Chenango Valley) received honorable mention accolades.
White, who became the fourth Dolphin to be named the Northeast-10 Conference Goalkeeper of the Year, earns USILA honors for the first time in his career. White, a Northeast-10 All-Rookie Team selection in 2010, led the nation in goals against average (4.46) and fewest goals allowed (65), while ranking second in the conference and eighth nationally in save percentage (61.1%). The starter in all 18 games, White played 874:43 between the pipes and made at least five saves in 12 contests. White, named the NE-10 goalkeeper of the week five times this season, registered 17 wins in net, the second-most in the program's history.
Cameron-Carter, who was the ninth Dolphin in the last 11 years to be picked as the Northeast-10 Conference Defenseman of the Year, receives his first career USILA accolades. The anchor of a defense that allowed just 4.39 goals per game, the best in the country by almost one goal a game, Cameron-Carter caused a team-leading 22 turnovers on the season, the second-most on the program's single-season chart. A starter in all 32 games played over two years as a Dolphin, Cameron-Carter picked up 37 ground balls (most among Le Moyne defenders), including 23 in conference action. In a 9-6 win over then-#2 Adelphi on March 17, Cameron-Carter caused a career-high three turnovers, which he then matched in last Saturday's 10-8 NCAA Semifinal loss to #3 Limestone. He grabbed career-high eight ground balls in a 9-5 win at Bentley on April 14.
Sennett, named to the second team for the second straight year after earning his second consecutive Northeast-10 First Team honors, registered 18 points on 14 goals and four assists from his position on the first midfield line. A two-way player for the Dolphins, Sennett picked up 11 ground balls and caused four turnovers. After recording five goals over the first nine games of the season, Sennett registered 13 points on nine goals and four assists over the next eight games, including four goals in the Northeast-10 Conference Championship, which earned him championship Most Valuable Player honors.
Prevost, a starter in all 18 games in his first year with the program, led the team and is fifth in the conference in points with 54, the most by a Dolphin since 2008. Prevost ranked second in the league in assists with 32, tied for the seventh-most in the program's history and the highest total by a Dolphin since 2003, while ranking third on the team in goals with 22. Prevost, who registered at least one point in 17 of 18 games, tallied multiple goals in seven games, including four contests with three goals. Additionally, he dished out multiple assists in nine games, including a season-high four in consecutive games against Bentley (4/14) and Pace (4/18).
Klepfer, a Northeast-10 Conference Second Team selection, started all 18 games for the nation's best defense. Klepfer caused 14 turnovers on the year, the second-best total on the team, while picking up 27 ground balls, the fifth-most on the team and second among defenders. Klepfer, a Capital One Academic All-District honoree, caused a turnover in 11 contests, including a career-high three in a win at Colorado Mesa on March 6. He picked up multiple ground balls in eight games, including a career-best four ground balls at Colorado Mesa.
Le Moyne, which won its 10th Northeast-10 Conference Championship on May 6, finished its season with a 17-1 record. The 17 wins mark the second-most in a season, trailing just the 2006 team, which posted 18 in claiming the national championship.
