JEFF WHITE EARNS USILA’S ENSIGN C. MARKLAND KELLY, JR. AWARD AS MOST OUTSTANDING GOALKEEPER
Perry, N.Y. – Le Moyne College junior goalkeeper Jeff White (Buffalo, N.Y./Canisius HS) has been named the recipient of the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association's Ensign C. Markland Kelly, Jr. Award as the most outstanding goalkeeper in Division II, as announced by the association on InsideLacrosse.com.
White, who became the fourth Dolphin to be named the Northeast-10 Conference Goalkeeper of the Year, is the third Le Moyne netminder to receive the Kelly, Jr. Award (Jared Corcoran - 2005, 2006 & 2007, Doug McIver - 2009). White, a Northeast-10 Conference and USILA All-America First Team selection, 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, a Northeast-10 All-Rookie Team selection in 2010, allowed two goals or less in 10 of the 18 games, including three starts where he did not allow a goal. 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.
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
