Louisville, Ky. -- Lynchburg College men's lacrosse senior Colin McGuire (Odenton, Md.) continued to rack up the postseason awards Monday when the midfielder was named a Division III Scholar All-American by the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association.

McGuire is the 15th player in Lynchburg men's lacrosse history to earn the award; the Hornets have placed at least one man on the team each of the past four seasons. A sport management and business administration double major, McGuire graduated this spring with a 3.65 cumulative GPA.

Seniors are eligible for the Scholar All-America award if they had a 3.0 GPA or higher and earned USILA All-America honors, were selected for the North-South All-Star Game, or were an outstanding performer in their conference. McGuire was tabbed an honorable mention All-American by the USILA and scored two goals for the South team in the all-star contest on May 25 in Providence, R.I.

A first-team All-ODAC and ODAC All-Tournament Team selection this season, he ranked second on the team with 68 points (36 goals and 32 assists) in 2018. McGuire helped the team to its seventh ODAC championship and the program's 12th trip to the NCAA Division III tournament.

He finished his career with 88 goals and 85 assists, ranking 14th in program history with those 173 points.
