The top-ranked Maryland men’s lacrosse team placed seven All-Americans, including two on the first team, on the USA Lacrosse Magazine’s selections, the publication announced Tuesday.
Attackman Logan Wisnauskas and graduate midfielder Roman Puglise received the nod for the undefeated Terps. Wisnauskas, Maryland’s all-time leader in points, has recorded a team-leading 48 goals and 36 assists thus far. Puglise earned a spot on the first team as a short stick defensive midfielder, making quite the impact despite not starting a game this season.
Junior faceoff specialist Luke Wierman and senior defender Brett Makar were named to the publication’s second team. Wierman was elite at the face-off X, and his 65.4% face-off winning clip ranks second in the entire nation. Makar, the 2022 Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year, was instrumental in leading the nation’s fifth-best defense in an unblemished season.
Graduate student midfielder Jonathan Donville starred after coming over from Cornell and earned third-team honors. Donville ranks third on the Terps with 26 goals and 45 points.
Junior goalie and Logan McNaney and graduate student defender Matt Rahill were recognized as honorable mentions. McNaney posted a Big Ten-leading 55.8% save percentage and allowed an impressive 8.91 goals-against average. Rahill forced more than one turnover per game on the back end.
