Three Men's Lacrosse Players Named All-New England
HAMDEN, Conn. - Three Quinnipiac University men's lacrosse players were named All-New England Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (NEILA), the organization today announced. Christian Haggerty (West Nyack, N.Y.), Kevin Kelly (Redding, Conn.) and Jake Glebocki (Wilbraham, Mass.) were all named to the Second Team.
Haggerty was a constant on the Bobcats' attack, starting all 14 games the Bobcats played, while scoring 21 goals and adding 20 assists. He became the only player in Quinnipiac history to record two 20/20 seasons and is one of only four players in QU history to have a single season of 20 goals and 20 assists. In just two years at Quinnipiac, Haggerty finished with 86 points, good for 14th all-time in program history. He registered a point in all 28 games he played with the Bobcats, ranking 18th nationally among current point streaks. Haggerty prolonged his career for one more game, scoring a man-down goal 21 seconds into the second overtime of the Bobcats' 12-11 win against Robert Morris in the NEC Tournament Semifinals.
Kelly was the Bobcats top goal scorer out of the midfield this season, tallying 26 goals to go along with 15 assists to tie Haggerty for the team lead in points (41). Kelly scored at least one goal in 12 of 14 games this season, and had a point in 13 of 14 games. He finishes his career 13th on the all-time program points list with 87. He compiled four hat tricks this season, including a five-goal outburst against Robert Morris on April 9. He again took it to the Colonials in the NEC Semifinals, finding the back of the net three times. He also scored three times each in consecutive games against Providence and NCAA Tournament qualifier Hartford. He also added three assists against Providence for a career-high six points on March 12.
Glebocki was a stalwart on the Bobcats' defense for the last four years and was its bright spot as a senior this season. The All-NEC First Team selection paced the nation's fourth-best defense at causing turnovers with 1.79 caused turnovers per game, good for 19th in the nation individually. He also picked up 50 ground balls, scored a goal and added an assist.
