Delia, Ferguson, and Maher Earn USILA All-America Honors

Delia, Ferguson, and Maher Earn USILA All-America Honors Springfield, Mass. - May 29, 2012 - The Springfield College men's lacrosse team had three student-athletes named to the 2012 United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) Division III All-America Team. Midfielders Mike Delia and Shane Ferguson joined goalie Rob Maher on the Honorable Mention All-America Team.

This marks the first time since 2001 that at least three members of the men's lacrosse program earned All-America recognition. 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.

Maher anchored a defense that ranked 15th in the country in scoring defense, allowing just 6.22 goals per contest. The Katonah, N.Y. native ranked fifth nationally in both save percentage (.651) and goals-against average (5.64), becoming one of just three goalies in the country to be in the top five in both categories. He totaled 138 saves and went 12-3 on the 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.
