yale-lacrosse-2015

PERRY, N.Y. – Recently graduated Yale University men’s lacrosse players Alirio DeMeireles (Oyster Bay Cove, N.Y.) and James Tjarksen (Hartland, Wisc.) have been named 2015 Scholar All-Americans by the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA).

The USILA Scholar All-America program recognizes student-athletes from USILA member institutions who have distinguished themselves academically, athletically and as citizens of their communities.

Both student-athletes received their degrees over the weekend at Commencement. DeMeiereles, a defenseman, majored in ecology & evolutionary biology, while Tjarksen was an economics major.

The pair helped the Bulldogs (11-5), the Ivy League Tournament champions, allow an Ivy-League best 8.13 goals per game.

In 2009, Adam O’Neill, Harry Alford and Thomas Alford launched Lacrosse Playground as the preeminent site for lacrosse gearheads. For years Lacrosse Playground provided lacrosse fans with tutorials and tips on how to string a lacrosse head, up-close looks at the gear the top players used and sneak peeks at equipment and uniforms before they were released. More than 10 years and millions of visits later, Lacrosse Playground has relaunched with a focus on storytelling. Our mission is to provide comprehensive coverage of the latest lacrosse news, share insights into the sports betting and fantasy lacrosse world and showcase the lifestyles and personalities of the sport of lacrosse through articles, videos and podcasts.
