(Carlisle, Pa.) – The Dickinson men's lacrosse team recently received more accolades, following an outstanding season that included the program's fourth Centennial Conference Championship. The Red Devils earned six spots on the Intercollegiate Men's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IMLCA) All-Mid-Atlantic Region Team, announced earlier this week.
Senior Dylan Maher (Ridgefield, Conn./Ridgefield) and junior Nate Usich (Avon, Conn./Avon Old Farms) led the way, earning First-team recognition on attack and as a long pole midfielder, respectively. Maher makes his second appearance, earning Second-team honors in 2017.
Senior face-off specialist Ryan Campbell (Rumson, N.J./Rumson-Fairhaven) makes his second straight appearance on the All-Region squad, receiving honorable mention last spring. Campbell ranked second in the conference with a remarkable 203 face-off wins this season. He posted a winning percentage of .610 and raised his totals to 493-of-830 for a career percentage of .594. He ranks fourth in program history in percentage and total wins, adding 187 ground balls.
Juniors Brodie Phillips (Charlottesville, Va./St. Anne's Belfield) and Jack Doran (Ardmore, Pa./Haverford School) joined sophomore goaltender Cole Pellicano (Arnold, Md./Broadneck) on the Second-team.
The Red Devils broke program records with 288 goals, 166 assists and 454 points on the year. Maher became the program's career and single season scoring leader, netting 70 goals this spring to finish with a school record 141. He ranks sixth in career points with 171, adding 30 assists to his resume. He made his second straight appearance on the All-America roster, earning honorable mention in 2017.
Usich received his second All-America nod and First-team All-Centennial Conference honors this spring. He led the Centennial with a remarkable 51 caused turnovers and ranked second in the CC, going over the century mark with 102 ground ball pick-ups. He proved to be a dangerous threat in transition as well, adding four goals and handing out five assists.
Pellicano stepped into a starting role and never looked back, turning in a number of outstanding performances in the nets. He earned All-American and First-team All-CC honors, leading the Centennial with 210 saves, ranking third in save percentage and fourth in goals-against-average, allowing just 8.92 per game. He made a career-high 21 saves at Franklin & Marshall and turned away 13 shots in another stellar performance in the conference championship.
Doran received his second All-America nod, earning honorable mention last season. A shutdown defender with another solid stick, Doran anchored a unit that held opponents to single digits in 15-of-21 games this season. The two-time First-team All-CC selection is no stranger to move into the midfield and on attack in transition, adding a pair of goals and five assists. He netted a key goal in the regular season match-up at F&M to help the Devils secure the #2-seed.
Phillips moved up to First-team All-Conference after receiving honorable mention in 2017 and went on to earn All-American honors as well. He was a generous teammate all year, handing out 30 assists to rank second in CC and fifth on the program single season list, adding 21 goals including a team-high five game-winners.
