Five different Maryland men’s lacrosse players were named to the USILA All-America Team this week. Jared Bernhardt was named to the Second Team, Bubba Fairman to the Third Team, and Justin Shockey, Roman Puglise and Logan Wisnauskas were all named Honorable Mentions.
Bernhardt returns for his fifth year for the preseason No. 2 Terrapins. In last year’s shortened schedule, Bernhardt finished with 29 points in just six games. The man who wears the historic “1” on his uniform was on pace to set records across the Maryland history books. The senior attackman from Longwood, Florida is a three-time All-American.
Fairman looks to continue his success in Maryland’s midfield entering his senior year. His 2019 sophomore season of 25 goals and 17 assists led to him earning Third Team All-American honors. The former second-ranked recruit will be key to Maryland’s winning ways this season.
Shockey leads the way for the Terps in the faceoff department. His 55.2% career rate has been much-needed for Maryland. The Potomac native also led the Terps with 40 groundballs during the six-game 2020 season.
The other two honorable mentions, Wisnauskas and Puglise, have also been two of the best for this team. Wisnauskas dominated last season, earning a team-high 36 points and being in the top-five nationally in both points and goals per game. Puglise, a two-time All-American, has continued to prove himself as one of the best defensive midfielders in the country over the course of his three seasons. Both will be vital to the Terps’ success in 2021.
There is still no schedule for the 2021 season yet.
