Finnerty, MacDonnell Named To North-South Game

May 25, 2010

BALTIMORE - Two Loyola University Maryland attackers were named to the Lax World/USILA North-South All-Star Game, the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association announced today.

Collin Finnerty and Cooper MacDonnell will represent the Greyhounds in the game on Friday, May 28. The contest will be played at Goucher College in Towson, Md.

Finnerty earned top honors at the Loyola Athletic Awards Banquet last month when he was named the 2010 recipient of the John R. Mohler '50 Award, given annually to the top senior male student-athlete who excels in the classroom and the athletic arena.

He was an All-ECAC First Team honoree after leading the Greyhounds in goals (24) and total points (36). Finnerty had six multi-goal games during the course of 2009 with a career-high five coming at Bellarmine.

MacDonnell picked up ECAC Offensive Player of the Year honors following the season despite missing three games early due to a shoulder injury. He finished the year with 22 goals and 28 points to close his career with 77 and 96, respectively.

MacDonnell scored a career-best six goals in the season-opener at Navy, including the game-winner in overtime. He closed his career by scoring at least one point in the final 28 games he played for Loyola, a span of two-plus seasons.
