BALTIMORE -- Princeton senior midfielder Tom Schreiber and Cornell junior midfielder Connor Buczek earned first-team All-American honors when the USILA announced its selections Thursday morning.
Penn placed three on the third-team with goalie Brian Feeney, defender Maxx Meyer and midfielder Zack Losco each earning spots. Honorable mention went to Harvard's Devin Dwyer and Bobby Duvnjak; Cornell's Matt Donovan, Dan Lintner, Tom Freshour and Jordan Stevens; and Yale's Conrad Oberbeck.
Schreiber joins Scott Bacigalupo and Josh Sims as the only three-time first-team All-Americans in the history of Princeton men's lacrosse. Schreiber was a third-team All-American as a freshman and then a first-team All-American each of his last three seasons.
The only midfielder in Ivy League history with at least 100 goals and 90 assists in a career, Schreiber had 30 goals and 21 assists for 51 points to lead the team in goals and points and finish second in assists. He led the team in scoring in each of his four seasons.
Schreiber was also a four-time first-team All-Ivy League selection, making him the second in Princeton history along with Chad Wiedmaier and the fourth in Ivy League history.
The No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 Major League Lacrosse draft, Schreiber finished his career with 106 goals and 94 assists for 200 points. He holds the Princeton records for goals, assists and points in a career by a midfielder and is the only player in program history in the top 10 in both career goals and career assists.
Schreiber was the 2013 MacLaughlin Award winner as the top midfielder in Division I. The 2014 award will be announced Friday.
The 2014 Ivy League Player of the Year, Buczek was a unanimous first-team All-Ivy selection for the second straight season after ranking in the Top 10 in the Ivy League in goals, assists and points.
He was a Tewaaraton Trophy nominee and registered at least three points in nine of Cornell's final 14 games and had four or more points in 4-of-6 Ivy contests. He ranked third on the team in goals (30), assists (17) and points (47). Buczek's 47 points on the season made him just the 14th midfielder in Cornell history to reach 100 career points.
