Men's Lacrosse Standout Jimmy McInnis Selected to Compete in NEILA East-West All-Star Game
Second NEILA honor for McInnis this postseason
RINDGE, N.H. (May 31, 2012) -- Franklin Pierce University men's lacrosse senior attackman Jimmy McInnis (Amherst, N.H.) has been selected to compete in the New England Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association's (NEILA) East-West All-Star Game on Friday night at Harvard University in Cambridge, Mass.
McInnis becomes the first Ravens lacrosse player to take part in the all-star festivities, which will feature the top Division I, II & III collegiate players throughout New England.
The all-star honor comes a little more than a month after McInnis capped his collegiate career with an impressive senior season. He scored 16 goals and assisted on 11 others for 27 points, and in the process became the program record-holder for career assists with 35.
McInnis concluded his outstanding season with a career-high tying five-point performance in the season finale versus Pace on April 28. He scored three markers and added two assists as the Ravens took down the Setters with a 10-9 triumph in the closing minutes. The victory completed the program's first-ever winning season as the Ravens posted a 7-6 record. The Ravens concluded the season tied for third in the final NEILA Division II Poll, which marked the highest ranking in program history.
The all-star nod is McInnis' second honor from NEILA this postseason, as he was also selected to the association's All-Academic Team in early May. McInnis earned a spot on the squad after posting a 3.22 cumulative grade point average and earning a bachelor's degree in business.
