Saints lax players Marvin and Fowler honored by USILA, will play in North/South Game
Former captains of the St. Lawrence University men's lacrosse team, Sam Marvin '14 and Pierson Fowler '14, have been honored by the USILA and chosen to participate in the 2014 North/South Senior All-Star game in Baltimore, MD. Marvin earned All-America Honorable Mention status, while Fowler was named a Scholar All-America.
"This is a tremendous way for Sam and Pierson to culminate their collegiate careers at St. Lawrence," said Saints head coach Mike Mahoney. "As captains, they were great leaders on our team and it is nice to see them recognized by the Division III coaches for their performances both on and off the field."Marvin was one of the premier defenders in the Liberty League in his senior year, earning First Team All-Conference honors. The Shaftsbury, VT native had career-highs in caused turnovers (32) and ground balls (42), landing on the Northwestern Mutual All-America Team.
Meanwhile, Fowler finished his career as a three-time All-Liberty League midfielder after totaling 17 points on 11 goals and six helpers. A scholar All-American must be nominated by his coach and be a student with a senior year academic standing and a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher. He must also be an All-American, a member of a North/South Team or an outstanding league player. He will have behaved in a manner that has brought credit to himself, his institution and to college lacrosse both on and offer the field.
Both Marvin and Fowler will play for the North in the annual senior all-star game on Sunday, May 25 at M&T Bank Stadium, home of the NFL's Baltimore Ravens, as part of this weekend's NCAA Lacrosse Championships. They bring the total of St. Lawrence representatives in the North/South game to 37.
