NEW LONDON, Conn. – Junior Trey Johnson and sophomore Riley McNulty earned honorable mention All-America honors from the USILA (United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association) after a season which saw Coast Guard win a school record 14 games including a win over eventual national champion Wesleyan and win a share of the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) regular season championship while advancing to the NEWMAC tournament Championship game for the first time in program history.
It was the first time that Coast Guard, in its fourth season as an NCAA program, had cadet-athletes named to the USILA Division III All-America team.
Johnson, the NEWMAC Co-Defensive Player of the Year, won a single-season record 13 games this season. He was first in the conference in GAA (6.87), tied for first in wins, and third in save percentage (56.4). He was named to the USILA Division III Team of the Week once and was a three-time NEWMAC Defensive Athlete of the Week. He allowed double digit goal totals in just one game this season.
McNulty, who earned second team All-region and first team All-conference honors this season, finished the year as one of the top midfielders in the NEWMAC. He led the conference in points (71), was second in goals (44) and third in assists (27). He became the first player in program history with 100 career points and was named NEWMAC Offensive Athlete of the Week three times this season.
Coast Guard finished 14-4 overall and 6-1 in the NEWMAC. The Bears lose just three seniors from the 2018 team.
