Cimini, Delia, and Ferguson Named To NEILA All New England Second Team

Cimini, Delia, and Ferguson Named To NEILA All New England Second Team Springfield, Mass. - May 16, 2012 - The members of the Springfield College men's lacrosse team were recently honored for their play this season by being named to the 2012 New England Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (NEILA) Division III All-New England Second Team. Both Mike Delia and Shane Ferguson were selected as midfielders, while defenseman Tim Cimini was also honored.

Much in part to their play, Springfield won its 11th overall and fifth consecutive Pilgrim Lacrosse League title this season. Springfield spent the majority of the season ranked in the USILA National Coaches Poll and finished the year with a 14-4 record, marking just the third time in 62 years that Springfield totaled at least 14 victories.

Cimini anchored a defense that ranks 15th in the country in scoring defense, allowing just 6.22 goals per contest. The West Hartford, Conn. native led the team with 32 caused turnovers and scooped up 45 ground balls, which was second best on the squad. In addition, the senior was named to the all-conference first team for the second-consecutive season.

Delia capped off an incredible career at Springfield as he garnered his fourth-straight first-team all-conference honor this season as a leader of the Pride's midfield. The Wading River, N.Y. product totaled 51 points during his senior campaign, handing out 26 assists to go along with 25 goals. Delia finishes his career ranked 11th in program history in career assists (83) and 14th in total points (156).

A native of Mamaroneck, N.Y., Ferguson continued to be a strong offensive weapon on Springfield's first midfield line. This season, he led the team with 39 goals while producing 52 points. He also added 32 ground balls and had eight games with at least three points, including a five-goal effort in the NCAA Championship first round versus Stevens.
