Men's Lacrosse Earns All-American Honors

BRUNSWICK, Maine - The Division III STX/USILA All-American Team has been announced and the Bowdoin College men's lacrosse team had four players honored. Jamie Nichols (Skaneateles, N.Y.) was named to the third team, while Brian Matthews (Dallas, Texas), Josh Allen (Saugus, Mass.) and P.J. Prest (Potomac, Md.) were named Honorable Mention.

Nichols, a long-stick defender and two-time first-team All-NESCAC selection, was the core of a defensive group that held opponents to only 7.5 goals per game this season. Nichols, along with Matthews and Prest, were defensive leaders for the Polar Bears, who posted an 11-4 record and advanced to the semifinals of the NESCAC tournament. Allen also earned Honorable Mention honors after leading the team in goals with 34 tallies this season.
