PERRY, N.Y. – The United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association announced its Division III Scholar All-Americans and four Salisbury University players were part of the list of honorees.
Seniors Nathan Blondino, Brendan Bromwell, Carson Kalama, and Andrew Ternahan all earned the honor. To be selected, a player must be a senior with a cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 or higher, while also being an All-American, a member of a North/South team, or an outstanding league or conference player.
Blondino, who was named the National Player of the Year, was a first-team All-American attackman, scoring 61 goals and dishing out a team-high 73 assists for 134 points, matching the total posted by Jason Coffman in 1995 as the most in a single season in program history.
Kalama, who was a starting attackman alongside Blondino, scored a team-best 69 goals and had 19 assists for 88 points. In the national championships game, Kalama scored four times and added one assist to be named the game's Most Outstanding Player.
Bromwell, part of the first midfield line, scored 32 goals and added 25 assists for 57 points this season. He appeared in every game, starting 18 of them, and was named a first-team All-American.
Ternahan was named the Long Pole Midfielder of the Year on the national level, as well as being named a first-team All-American. He recorded 34 caused turnovers and scooped up 85 ground balls as he helped the Sea Gulls to the nation's seventh-best scoring defense, surrendering just 6.70 goals per game.
Salisbury went 22-1 in the 2017 season, closing things out with a 15-7 win against Rochester Institute of Technology for the program's 12th national championship.
