Hornets Dot All-State Men's Lacrosse Team With Six First-Teamers
Lisicky and Koudelka Earn Player, Coach of the Year Honors
ASHLAND, VA – Following a fantastic season, it was no surprise that Lynchburg College was richly rewarded with the release of the 2012 All-State College Division Men's Lacrosse Team, as voted on by the Virginia Sports Information Directors (VaSID).
Junior defender Joe Lisicky was named the All-State Player of the Year while Steve Koudelka earned Coach of the year accolades. Washington & Lee University's Cameron Dabir was voted the Rookie of the Year.
Lisicky earned first-team All-American honors last month, the first player in program history to do so. He captured the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) Player of the Year and First Team honors. Helping lead one of the nation's top defenses, Lisicky led the team with 89 groundballs and 41 caused turnovers. He also chipped in five goals on the offensive end.
Koudelka, also the 2012 All-ODAC Coach of the Year, led the Hornets to the best season in program history. He led the Hornets to their fourth ODAC Championship as LC finished the year 17-2 overall and were ranked as high as No. 3 in the nation during the season. LC won 16 straight-games during the campaign.
Six Hornets took spots on the 10-man first-team All-State squad. Joining Lisicky are seniors Dylan Hoff (attack), Andrew Wilfong (midfield), Matt Jernack (midfield), Jon Lombardo (defense) and Franc Cook (goalie). Junior attack Max Voumard took home second-team honors.
