MERRIGAN NAMED USILA ALL-AMERICAN HONORABLE MENTION
MEDFORD -- Senior defenseman Tucker Merrigan (Greenfield, MA)
of the Tufts University men's lacrosse team earned a spot on the
2008 United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA)
Division III Honorable Mention squad.
Merrigan led a young Jumbo defensive unit that included two new
starters. Tufts had strong defensive performances early in the
season against eventual NESCAC champion Williams College (7-4 win)
and later against NCAA qualifier Bowdoin College (19-4 win).
Coach Mike Daly's Tufts team has now had representation on the
USILA All-American teams for six straight seasons. Playing the second-most competitive schedule in the country for
NCAA Division III, Tufts finished 9-6 overall with wins over
nationally ranked teams Williams, Western New England and Bowdoin
(by a 19-4 score). The Jumbos earned third place in the NESCAC
regular season with a 6-3 mark.
