PLYMOUTH, N.H. - Two Plymouth State University men's lacrosse players were honored Wednesday with selections to the Little East Conference All-Star Team for the 2008 season.
Senior Adam Krinsky (Concord, N.H./Concord) and sophomore Brian Giroux (Wolfeboro Falls, N.H./Brewster Academy) were PSU's choices to the All-LEC Second Team, as voted by the league's head coaches. They are two of PSU's three starting attackmen and have combined for 59 goals and 49 assists for the Panthers this spring.
Krinsky and Giroux will help the Panthers defend their ECAC New England Tournament title this weekend. PSU is the second seed and will meet third-seeded Lasell College Saturday at 3:00 p.m. in the second semifinal at top-seeded Endicott College. The championship game is Sunday at Endicott.
One of PSU's all-time leading scorers, Krinsky (right) becomes a four-time LEC All-Star. He leads the team in scoring this season with 58 points (22 goals, 36 assists), and is tied for second in the conference in assists and sixth in total points. Krinsky achieved several milestones this season, recording his 100th career assist on April 17th and his 200th career point on April 22nd. With career totals of 99 goals and 117 assists, he needs just one goal to become the second player in school history to register both 100 goals and 100 assists.
Giroux (left) made an immediate impact on the Panthers this season after transferring to PSU from Bryant University. The sophomore led the team and finished eighth in the conference with 37 goals scored while adding 13 assists. He was also sixth on the team in ground balls with 35.
Plymouth State takes a 12-6 overall record into this weekend's ECAC Tournament, with all but two of the Panther games played on the road. The 12 wins matches the single-season school record for victories in a season, set in 1970. PSU is competing in the ECAC Tournament for the third time in four years.
