NOTRE DAME, Ind. – Notre Dame senior midfielder David Earl (Simsbury, Conn./Westminster School) has been named to the 2011 United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) Scholar All-America Team. Earl was one of 57 student-athletes from NCAA Division I, II and III selected to the team.
Earl was named the BIG EAST Midfielder of the Year earlier this month. He graduated this past weekend from Notre Dame’s Mendoza College of Business with a degree in management entrepreneurship. Earl posted a 3.560 GPA during the 2011 spring semester and finished with a 3.095 cumulate GPA for his college academic career.
The senior captain tied for the team lead in points this season with 25 on 15 goals and a team-high 10 assists. He played in 62 career games and tallied 51 goals and 22 assists in addition to picking up 157 ground balls.
Earl was one of 25 nominees up for the Tewaaraton Trophy, which is awarded annually to the nation’s top player. The Hamilton Nationals picked Earl in the third round of January’s Major League Lacrosse (MLL) Draft.
Earl helped guide Notre Dame to an 11-3 record this season. The Fighting Irish fell to Duke 7-5 on Sunday in the quarterfinals of the NCAA Championship.
