Kalish Captures USILA Scholar All-America Honors

Perry, N.Y. – For the first time in the history of the Lynn University men's lacrosse program, the Fighting Knights have a United State Intercollegiate Lacrosse Associations (USILA) Scholar All-American as 2019 graduate Evan P. Kalish secured the accolade on Thursday.

A Scholar All-American must be a student with a senior year academic standing and a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 (4.0 scale). He will have behaved in a manner that has brought credit to himself, his institution, and to college lacrosse both on and off the field. He must also be an All-American, a Senior All-Star Game Selection, or an outstanding league or conference player.

A 2019 All-Sunshine State Conference Second Team honoree, Kalish started every game in the defensive unit this year in his one and only season donning the Blue and White. His 22 caused turnovers are the second most in single-season program history while he ranked sixth this year around the SSC. Kalish led all Lynn defenders in ground balls and committed just one turnover all season.

Kalish was also selected to play in the 2019 USILA Senior All-Star Game this past May, becoming the first player in program history to be invited to the prestigious event.
