Six Wahoos named USILA All-Americans

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 SPORTS) -- Virginia men's lacrosse places six on USILA All-America team, the most from the program since 2014.

Highlighting the honors were midfielder Dox Aitken, midfielder Ryan Conrad and long-stick midfielder Jared Conners all making the first-team. The three first-team selections are the most since 2009 when Shamel Bratton, Ken Clausen and Dan Glading were named to the first-team.

Aitken is the 15th Cavalier to earn multiple first-team honors after also being selected to the first-team in 2018. In three seasons, Aitken already holds the Virginia records for career goals (107) and points (135) by a midfielder.

Conrad previously earned third-team honors in 2017 before missing most of 2018 with an injury. The senior midfielder is the only player in the nation with 11 or more points and 70 or more ground balls.

Conners is a first time All-American after helping to lead the Cavaliers' defense and picking up 48 ground balls and causing 26 turnovers.

Attackman Michael Kraus was also selected to the third-team, while defenseman Logan Greco and attackman Matt Moore were named as honorable mentions. Kraus was a second-team selection in 2018, while Greco and Moore are both first team honorees.
