Owings Mills, Md. -- University of Lynchburg junior Kevin Rogers (Leesburg, Va.) merited first-team Division III All-America honors from the Intercollegiate Men's Lacrosse Coaches Association, the IMLCA announced Tuesday evening via Twitter.

Rogers, a midfielder, led Lynchburg's team with 78 points in 2019 and ranked second among the Hornets in both goals (47) and assists (31). All of those marks were career-highs for Rogers, who scored a point in every game this season.

The All-America honor is the second of the season for Rogers, who was named to the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association's second team. Rogers was a first-team All-ODAC and All-South Region midfielder.
