HAVERFORD, Pa. – Senior defenseman Scott Chanelli of Haverford College's men's lacrosse team has been named a 2013 U.S. Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) Division III honorable mention All-American, as released Tuesday by InsideLacrosse.com.
Tuesday's all-American nod was not the only postseason honor Chanelli earned in the day as he was also named a 2013 USILA Scholar All-American and was selected to play for the South team in the 2013 D-III North/South senior all-star game which will be contested at 3 p.m. on Friday, May 24 at Cabrini College.
Last week Chanelli was named to the first-team All-Centennial Conference squad, following up on second-team honors in 2012.
Chanelli posted career-high numbers during his final campaign as a Fords defender, forcing a league-best 47 caused turnovers and scooping up 86 ground balls, which was fourth-most in the conference. His mark of 3.36 caused turnovers per game ranks fifth in NCAA D-III lacrosse, and Chanelli's career total of 182 ground balls is 10th-most in program history.
The all-American honor earned by Chanelli marks the seventh consecutive season the Fords' program has placed a player on the national squad.
