PERRY, N.Y.--Two members of the Keene State College men's lacrosse team were honored by the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association. Sophomore attack Tyler McKelvie and junior defender Mike Curley were both named Honorable Mention All-Americans.
The award is yet another feather in the cap for McKelvie, who was named the Little East Conference Offensive Player of the Year and First Team All-Conference in 2014. McKelvie finished the season with 57 goals and 20 assists for a team and conference leading 77 points.
Registering no less than two points in every game, McKelvie fell one goal shy of the school record for goals in a game with a nine goal haul against Tufts University on March 8. He also put together the highest single point game in the LEC, with seven goals and three assists against Western Connecticut State on April 5.
Curley, meanwhile, was chosen as the LEC Defensive Player of the Year and garnered First Team honors for the second-straight season. The junior from Billerica, Mass. picked up 33 ground balls on the season, recording six in two separate games, while causing a team-leading 13 turnovers, responsible for three in April 22’s game against Plymouth State. Curley was key in a defense that did not allow an LEC opponent to score above 10 goals against KSC.
McKelvie and Curley led the Owls to their fifth LEC tournament championship and NCAA bid this past season.
