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.
