Stony Brook, N.Y – Three Retrievers juniors earned America East Conference Men's Lacrosse All-Conference honors at the league's pre-championship banquet held at Stony Brook's Island Federal Arena.
Attackman Ryan Frawley (Mountain Lakes, N.J.) earned a top honor, as the coaches selected the league's top goal-scorer to the America East First Team. In his first season in black and gold, defender Colin Kasner (Crofton, Md./DeMatha) was selected to the America East Second Team, while attackman Brett McIntyre (Calgary, Alberta) tabbed All-Academic Team honors.
Frawley, who was selected to the All-Rookie Team in 2017, leads the conference with 2.75 goals per game. His 33 tallies are the most for a Retriever since Nate Lewnes recorded 43 in 2016. Frawley, who missed all but one conference game a year ago due to a hand injury, has scored three of more goals in six of 12 games this season.
Kasner and McIntyre have both produced break-out seasons for the Retrievers in 2019. Kasner stabilized a depleted UMBC close defense this year as UMBC held four of its last five opponents to single digits in scoring. He leads the conference and is ranked eighth nationally in caused turnovers per game (2.17). He is second on the team with 34 ground balls and the 26 caused miscues are the most by a Retriever since Mike Camardo recorded 36 in 2011.
McIntyre saw limited action in his first two seasons, but came off the bench in the second game of the year versus Richmond and scored three goals. The Canadian has started ever since and has posted four game with three goals or more, including a five-goal effort versus Brown. McIntyre (21g) is maintaining a 3.91 grade-point average in mechanical engineering.
