Beebe Named 2009 USILA Honorable Mention All American
Springfield, Mass. - May 19, 2009 - Senior Jake Beebe continue to rack up the postseason accolades as he was named an honorable mention All-America by the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) on Tuesday morning.
This marks the seventh-straight season that the men's lacrosse team had at least one student athlete represented as an All-American, with Tyler Montgomery most recently earning the accolade last season.
The Pilgrim Lacrosse Player of the Year, Beebe turned in one of the most impressive offensive careers in program history. He ended his career ranked in the top seven in the three major offensive categories as he tallied 127 goals (7th most), 126 assists (4th most), and 253 points (4th most) throughout his four years. His senior season was also one of the best single seasons in program history. His 46 assists were the second most for a player in a year, while his 87 points was the fourth-highest total for a player in one season. The highlight of the season came in the NCAA Tournament First Round as Beebe broke an 18-year old NCAA Tournament record for points in a game. In the 21-4 win over Mount Ida, Beebe poured in seven goals and five assists for a record-breaking total of 12 points. The previous mark was held by Rich Franz of Ohio Wesleyan, who tallied 11 points in 1991 for Ohio Wesleyan in a win over Washington & Lee.
