PRINCETON
, N.J. -- The United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) announced its 2012 Division I All-Americans and the list includes 10 Ivy League players, highlighted by first teem honorees Tom Schrieber and Chad Wiedmaier of Princeton.

Cornell's Jason Noble and Princeton's Tyler Fiorito were named to the second team, while the Big Red's Roy Lang made the third team. Rounding out the Ivy contingent, Harvard's Jeff Cohen, Princeton's John Cunningham and the Yale trio of Greg Mahony, Dylan Levings and Peter Johnson earned honorable mention status.

Princeton joined Virginia, Duke and Notre Dame as the only schools with more than one first-team All-America.

Schreiber finished his sophomore season with 32 goals and 28 assists, giving him 60 points for the year, good for ninth-place on Princeton's single-season list. He is one of four players in Princeton history with at least 30 goals and 25 assists in the same season and came within two assists of being the second to have a 30/30 season. Teh first team All-Ivy selection had at least three points in 14 of 16 games, and he finished the year with two goals and two assists in against Virginia.

Wiedmaier is the first four-time first-team All-Ivy League selection in Princeton men’s lacrosse history and the second in Ivy League men’s lacrosse history (Cornell's Max Siebald was the first). His final game as a Tiger came in the 6-5 loss to Virgina in the NCAA tournament, during which Wiedmaier held Steele Stanwick to just one assist (Stanwick had a goal when Wiedmaier wasn't on him).  Stanwick, the 2011 Tewaaraton Trophy winner, came back to have two goals and five assists against Notre Dame in the quarterfinals.

As a junior, Noble was named to the All-America second-team after garnering an honorable mention selection a season ago. He was a first-team All-Ivy honoree after anchoring the 16th ranked defensive unit in the nation. Noble finished the season ranking eighth in the nation with 2.00 caused turnovers per game and ranked third on the team with 35 ground balls. A tenacious defender with outstanding stick skills, Noble also played on the wing during face-offs, and
provided the Big Red with depth in the face-off circle as well, winning 13-of-32 restarts.

The 2012 Ivy League Player of the Year, Fiorito finished the regular season with a 6.65 goals against average and a .615 save percentage in all games played. In Ivy League play, his goals against average dropped to 5.53 and his save percentage moved up to .680. All told, he made 126 saves throughout the regular season including 16 saves at Brown on March 31 and 16 saves at Syracuse on April 7. He clsoed his career with a huge game against Virginia with 12 saves, many of them spectacular. A three-time first-team All-Ivy pick, Fiorito finished his career second all-time at Princeton with 624 saves.

Lang, a first-team All-American a season ago, was named to the third-team following a senior campaign that saw him take on a larger role in the Big Red defensive and face-off units as a do-it-all midfielder. The Mill Valley, Calif. native is a two-time first-team All-Ivy selection and finished the 2012 season with 16 goals and six assists for 22 points. Lang also collected 23 ground balls and caused seven turnovers.
