Six 2012 Tewaaraton Trophy nominees highlight this year’s All-ACC Men’s Lacrosse Team as announced today by the league office. The team is determined by a vote of the league’s four head coaches.
Maryland leads all conference teams with four players recognized. Junior midfielder Jesse Bernhardt, who is on the Tewaaraton Watch List, is joined by teammates John Haus, Joe Cummings and Niko Amato. Cummings and Amato both repeat as members of the All-ACC Team.
Duke, the top seed in this week’s ACC Championship, has three players recognized. Senior midfielder CJ Costabile and sophomore attackman Jordan Wolf were both named to the All-ACC team last year, and they are joined by senior midfielder Robert Rotanz.
Virginia is represented by Steele Stanwick, Colin Briggs, and Chris LaPierre, all of whom are on the Tewaaraton Trophy Watch List. It is the third All-ACC honor for Stanwick, the reigning Tewaaraton winner, and the second for Briggs and LaPierre.
