Sessa Named Preseason Honorable Mention All-American by Inside Lacrosse/Face-Off Magazine
Springfield, Mass. - December 3, 2009
- Senior longstick midfielder Pete Sessa
was selected as an Inside Lacrosse/Face-Off Magazine preseason honorable mention All-American, which was announced on Thursday morning. This marks the first time in his career that Sessa earned preseason All-America accolades from the national lacrosse publication.
Sessa earned Pilgrim Lacrosse League All-Conference First Team honors last season after having a standout junior campaign a year ago as the Pride's longstick midfielder. Last season, Sessa ranked second on the team with 54 ground balls and caused 13 turnovers. A key to Springfield's transition game, the Newton, Mass. product added four goals and two assists on the offensive side of the ball.
Sessa is the only player from the Pilgrim Lacrosse League to earn the preseason national recognition.
The Pride, which advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament last season before bowing out to eventual national champion Cortland State, will open up its season at home against Gordon on February 24.
