Lynchburg, Va. -- Five University of Lynchburg men's lacrosse players earned All-State honors in the college division, the Virginia Sports Information Directors announced Friday.

Three Hornets -- junior defender Tyler Gallagher (Palmyra, Pa.), senior long-stick midfielder Seamus McDonald (Far Hills, N.J.) and junior midfielder Kevin Rogers (Leesburg, Va.) -- won enough votes to land on VaSID's first team.

Junior midfielder Colin Dean (Havre de Grace, Md.) and senior defender Matt Meadows (Lynchburg, Va.) claimed second-team honors.

Lynchburg's five honorees tied for the most from any institution.

Gallagher caused 16 turnovers and scooped 40 ground balls on the year, ranking in the team's top five in both categories. He was first-team All-Old Dominion Athletic Conference, second-team all-region and honorable mention All-America.

McDonald, a two-time honorable mention All-American, led Lynchburg's team with 29 caused turnovers and ranked second among the Hornets in ground balls with 79. He was first-team All-South Region and All-ODAC.

Rogers ranked fifth in the ODAC and led the Hornets with 78 points (47 goals, 31 assists), scoring in every game this season. He was a second-team USILA All-American and a first-team IMLCA All-American to go with first-team all-region and all-conference accolades. He was also ODAC player of the week April 29 and included on the Division III team of the week Feb. 12.

Dean posted career-highs with 32 goals and 27 assists, earning first-team All-ODAC honors. He was named to the Division III team of the week March 19.

Meadows, an honorable mention All-American, ranked second on the team with 18 caused turnovers. The first-team All-ODAC and all-region player also grabbed 29 ground balls.

Lynchburg reached the Round of 16 in the NCAA Division III tournament and finished the season with a 14-7 record. The Hornets were ranked 18th in the nation in the final USILA coaches poll.
