TOWSON, Md. — Four players from Goucher are included on the 2016 All-Landmark Conference men's lacrosse team which was revealed this afternoon by the conference office. All four are seniors and each one of them was a second-team selection.
The team includes 27 student-athletes representing all eight men's lacrosse programs which compete in the Landmark Conference. Position-by-position voting was done by the head coaches and the balloting produced a first team that included three attackman, four midfielders, a long-stick midfielder, a short-stick defensive midfielder, a face-off specialist, three defenseman and a goalkeeper, as well as a second team made up of 13 additional players.
Goucher's four all-conference selections were attackman Owen Demmerly (Medford, N.J./Shawnee), midfielder Michael Morgan (Austin, Texas/Westwood) and defensemen Andrew Foster (Ashland, Ohio/Western Reserve Academy) and Blake Russell (Lake Shore, Md./Northeast).
This is Demmerly's third time earning All-Landmark honors. He was a second-team midfielder as a sophomore in 2014 and a first-team pick as a midfielder last season as a junior. He finished second on the team this season with 31 goals, but was the leader in assists (29) and points (60).
Morgan supplied the Gophers with a team-high total of 33 goals and ranked among the Division III national leaders with 12 12 extra-man goals.
Foster was a four-year starter on close defense who concluded his career with 106 ground balls and 59 caused turnovers. Russell appeared in 60 games during his four season at Goucher and with the 41 ground balls he scooped up and 12 turnovers he caused in 2016, his career totals are: 123 ground balls and 41 caused turnovers.
