Three Knights Named Men's Lacrosse All-SUNYAC

GENESEO, N.Y. – SUNY Geneseo senior defenseman Jack Crowley was named State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) First-Team Men's Lacrosse All-Conference, while junior goalie Tyler Wetzel and sophomore attackman James Pratt landed second-team honors, announced Thursday. 

Crowley became the fourth four-time all-conference player in the 50-year history of the program, landing his second-consecutive first-team honor after back-to-back second-team selections in 2016 and 2017. One of the region's top defensive players, he tied for seventh in the SUNYAC with 19 caused turnovers and while finishing 13th with 44 ground balls. 

Wetzel landed his second-consecutive second-team recognition after leading the SUNYAC in minutes played (1020:01) and saves (206) while finishing fourth with a 10.53 goals against average and fifth with a .535 save percentage. He logged a career-high 20 saves in the Knights' 13-10 victory at Alfred (Mar. 20) before stopping 21 in the Knights' 14-5 setback to No. 3 RIT (Mar. 27) two games later. 

Pratt (33 goals, 22 assists, 55 points) was the Knights' first 50-point scorer since 2011 (Craig Lange '11 - 18-33-51) and first 30-goal scorer since 2010 (Brendan Kurpis '12 - 34). He finished fifth in the SUNYAC with the most points by a Geneseo player since 2010 (Lange - 28-34-62) while ending the season fourth in assists and tied for fifth in goals. Pratt tied a career-high with eight points on four goals and four assists in the squad's 13-10 setback opposite Cortland (Apr. 10) during the regular season after adding two goals and four assists in the team's 11-10 overtime win against Oneonta (Apr. 6). 

Geneseo (8-10) qualified for its 13th SUNYAC Tournament in the last 17 years, including its second in the last three seasons. The third-seeded Knights upset second-seeded Plattsburgh, 11-10, on the road in the semifinals to move on to the 10th conference championship game in program history and first since 2012. Geneseo fell at top-seeded Cortland, 13-9, to close the season.
