Maryland men’s lacrosse attackers Jared Bernhardt and Logan Wisnauskas, midfielders Roman Puglise and Kyle Long, defenders Nick Grill and Brett Makar along with goalie Logan McNaney were named to the Inside Lacrosse Media All-America team.

Bernhardt was a first-team selection which comes as no surprise after he earned 2021 Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year, while leading the nation in scoring averaging 4.54 goals per game. The Tewaarton finalist also leads the Terps in points averaging 6.31 per game.

Grill and Makar earned spots on the second team thanks to the brick wall of a defense they’ve created this season. The Terps have allowed just 9.77 goals per game and Grill earned Defensive Player of the Week three weeks in a row, the first time in conference history. Grill has picked up 38 ground balls this season while Makar has picked up 31. Grill and Makar have caused 16 and 13 turnovers, respectively.

Additionally, Wisnauskas, Puglise and Long earned third-team honors while McNaney earned honorable mention. Wisnauskas’ senior season has been highlighted by his team-high 28 assists along with his 4.54 points per game. Long’s 25 assists rank second on the team behind Wisnauskas while Puglise has been a key factor to both the offense and defense as he has picked up 19 ground balls.

McNaney has helped keep Maryland perfect all season with his 52.0% save percentage earning him Big Ten Specialist of the Week twice this season.

All seven of these Terps have helped lead Maryland to the NCAA Tournament quarterfinal against Notre Dame set that is set for Sunday at 2:30 p.m.
