Boyland Named Scholar All-American

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Susquehanna senior men's lacrosse player Conor Boyland '15 (Long Valley, N.J./West Morris Central) has earned Scholar All-America recognition from the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA). Boyland is the first-ever SU men's lacrosse player to earn Scholar All-America status.

Boyland, a team captain, was named First-Team All-Landmark Conference at short-stick defensive midfield. Boyland started 15 of the 16 games in which he played and finished the season with a career-high 35 ground balls and seven caused turnovers. The SU defense allowed just 6.31 goals per game while the Crusaders out-scored their opponents by a 134-101 margin. Boyland also added two goals and three assists.

In addition to his All-Conference honor, Boyland was also named to the Landmark's All-Sportsmanship Team earlier this month.

He finished his career with 74 ground balls, six goals and three assists in 53 games. The Crusaders tied a program record with 12 victories and advanced to the Landmark Conference Tournament for the third consecutive season.

A Scholar All-American must be nominated by his coach and be a student with a senior year academic standing and a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 or higher. He must also be an All-American, a member of a North/South team or an outstanding league or conference player. 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.
