Brooklyn, NY---The ASA College men's lacrosse team had six Avengers named All-Region at the annual coaches meeting last night. Three Avengers were named to the First Team and three to the Second Team.
Steve Zolezzi - The sophomore attackman was a scoring machine for the Avengers this season, racking up 43 goals in 13 games played, ranking him second in the region in goals scored. He scored a season-high nine goals in a 15-14 victory at Brookdale CC to close the regular season. His single-game nine goals was second-highest in program history.
Kier Johnson - The midfielder finished off his two-year career at ASA as one of the best middies to ever put on the Avenger uniform. An all-purpose member of the team, Johnson did it all for ASA including taking a good share of faceoffs. He would finish the season ranked sixth in region in goals scored and fourth regionally in faceoffs won. Johnson led the region in ground balls with 65.
Chris Howell - Regarded as one of the more powerful and lock-down long-poles in the nation, the freshman defender finished second in the region in caused turnovers with 24. He also finished second in the region in ground balls.
Corey Boyle - The sophomore attackman followed up a solid freshman campaign with a stellar sophomore season. Boyle finished fourth in region in points with 44 on 18 goals and 26 assists. His 26 assists ranked him third in the region and 11th in the NJCAA. The Brampton, Ontario native had a season-high 10 points at CCBC Catonsville on three goals and seven 'apples'.
Qusarn Caldwell - The transfer midfielder was a great compliment to First Teamer, Keir Johnson, this season providing plenty of productivity. Caldwell finished 6th in the region in points with 39 on 23 goals and 16 assists. He finished in the top-5 in the region in just about every other positive statistical category. Caldwell established himself as one of the "go-to" guys on the field immediately, scoring four goals and distributing two assists in the Avengers' season opener at Army Prep this season.
David George - After sitting out last season, the sophomore long-pole stood out as one of the better defenders in the region this season. He led Region XV in caused turnovers with 31 and fourth in the region in ground balls with 52. The Lindenhurst, NY native forced a season-high six turnovers at Brookdale.
