NEILA Selects 52 Seniors for Annual East-West Game

NEWTON, Mass. – The New England Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (NEILA) is excited to announce the 52 student-athletes who will compete in this year’s East-West Senior All Star Game on Friday, June 2nd.

The game will take place at Stagg Field on the campus of Springfield College at 6:30 pm and will feature the top graduating students from Divisions 1, 2, and 3.

All players and coaches were nominated by the head coaches within the NEILA.  Players were then ranked and selected by a committee awarding seniors from all three NCAA Divisions who played their college career in the New England region.

“The NEILA recognizes these terrific student-athletes for their accomplishments over their entire playing careers. To be selected for the East-West All-Star game means that you have been a star not just this year, but throughout your four years in New England collegiate lacrosse,” said Tim Murphy, head coach of Curry College and coordinator of the East-West All-Star teams selection.

The NEILA East-West game also gives assistant coaches from some of the top programs each year the opportunity to take the reins as the coaching staffs of each team. This year, the West will be coached by Brad Bishop of Keene State, Liam Murphy of Eastern Connecticut State, and Ben Lanman of Southern New Hampshire. The East will be head manned by Kevin Gould from UMass Lowell, Anthony Nardella of Saint Anselm and Derek Marshall of Wheaton College.

We would like to recognize these 52 young men on their time and commitment to their schools over their four-year careers.
