Cord & Stewart Named All-Americans
Cord Lands on Second Team, Stewart Honorable Mention
CHESTERTOWN, MD -- The 2012 United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association Division III All-America selections were announced today and two Washington College student-athletes made the list. Attackman Bennett Cord (Gaithersburg, MD/Gaithersburg) was named to the second team, while goalie Peter Stewart (Annapolis, MD/St. Mary's) was tabbed as an honorable mention.
Cord, who will be a senior in the fall, had a breakout junior season in 2012. He was named the Centennial Conference's Player of the Year and was a first-team all-conference selection after scoring a team-high 38 goals and assisting on a team-best 22 others. He led the conference in both goals per game (2.24) and points per game (3.53) and was sixth in assists per game (1.29). He also scooped up 28 ground balls this season.
Stewart, who received a B.A. in Psychology on Sunday, had an impressive senior campaign in 2012. He was named to the All-Centennial Conference first team and ranked first in the conference and 14th in all of Division III in save percentage (.624), second in the conference and 21st in Division III in goals-against average (7.00), and third in the conference in saves per game (10.82). He also recorded 44 ground balls this season, second-most on the team, and handed out his first two collegiate assists this year.
Washington College men's lacrosse players have now earned All-America status 228 times since 1950.
