Jeffs Place Three on STX/USILA All-America Team

June 1, 2004

AMHERST, MA - The Amherst College men’s lacrosse team placed three players on the 2004 STX Division III Honorable Mention All-America Team, as selected by the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) - first-year attackman Derek Cherney (Chappaqua, NY/Horace Greeley), sophomore midfielder Andrew Wilcox (Ancramdale, NY/Loomis Chaffee) and junior defenseman Greg Donohue (Bow, NH/Phillips Exeter).

Cherney earned both New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) and New England Region Rookie of the Year honors after tying for seventh in the conference in goals (28) and finishing ninth in points (43) and 13th in assists (15). He tallied four points in his collegiate debut, a season-opening 13-4 win over Kenyon College in Orlando, Florida, and posted back-to-back six-point outings in a pair of key conference wins over Trinity and Bates Colleges.

Wilcox, a Second-Team ECAC New England All-Star as a first-year, a First-Team All-New England pick as a sophomore and a two-time First-Team All-NESCAC selection, scooped up a team-high 72 ground balls to go along with two goals and a pair of assists. He had a particularly strong game in the Jeffs’ regular-season finale, an 11-9 win over visiting archrival Williams College that clinched the No. 4 seed in the NESCAC Postseason Championship Tournament, torching the Ephs for a game-high 12 ground balls and scoring his second goal of the season.

Donohue was a First-Team All-NESCAC and First-Team All-New England selection after earning Second-Team New England Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (NEILA) All-Star and Second-Team All-NESCAC honors as a sophomore. He scored a trio of goals and tallied 36 ground balls, anchoring an Amherst defense that surrendered just 7.06 goals per game.

Amherst finished its season at 11-5 (6-3 NESCAC) and earned the No. 4 seed in the NESCAC Tournament, downing visiting Bowdoin College 6-5 in the first round before falling at top-seeded Middlebury College 7-2 in the semifinals.
