BALTIMORE – Senior midfielder JoJo Marasco (Yorktown Heights, N.Y.) headlined a group of four Syracuse University men’s lacrosse players who earned All-America recognition from the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) on Thursday, May 23.

Marasco was one of five midfielders, along with John Haus (Maryland), Cameron Flint (Denver), David Lawson (Duke) and Tom Schreiber (Princeton), named to the USILA All-America First Team.

Orange teammates Brian Megill (Clark, N.J.), Luke Cometti (Syracuse, N.Y.) and Henry Schoonmaker (Portland, Ore.) joined Marasco on the organization’s 2013 list of All-Americans. Megill was named to the second team, while Cometti and Schoonmaker received honorable mention honors.

This is the second time Marasco and Megill have been rewarded with USILA All-America status. Marasco was an honorable mention choice in 2011 and Megill received second-team plaudits in 2012. Cometti and Schoonmaker are first-time honorees.

A Tewaaraton Award finalist and the BIG EAST Midfielder of the Year, Marasco ranks fifth in the BIG EAST in scoring (3.22 points per game) and second in assists (2.11 per game). He leads the Orange in points (58) and holds the school single-season record for assists by a midfielder with 38 this season.

Megill has started every game for the Orange on close defense and he is a two-time unanimous All-BIG EAST First Team performer. He holds the Orange record for career caused turnovers (100) and he leads the Orange this season with 48 ground balls. Megill also has 22 caused turnovers, good for third on the squad.

Cometti plays with Marasco on the Orange’s first midfield line. He is tied for the team lead in goals (30) and ranks third on the Orange with 39 points.

Schoonmaker anchors Syracuse’s second midfield. He has 18 goals and five assists this season. Against Princeton on April 6, Schoonmaker had a breakout game, recording four goals and two assists to lead the Orange past the Tigers, 13-12.

Syracuse is the top seed in the NCAA Division I Men’s Lacrosse Championship. The Orange will face Denver in the national semifinals on Saturday, May 25 at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia. Faceoff is scheduled for 5 p.m. on ESPN2.

    Jordan Houtby of Detroit was the active leader in caused turnovers in the nation by a longshot, and he also shut down a top 10 team in Notre Dame in the tourney. Why no love for him?
