The Men’s Collegiate Lacrosse Association (MCLA), the preeminent non-varsity league in the country, is pleased to announce that US Lacrosse is once again sponsoring the MCLA Player of the Month in 2017, which will be awarded to an MCLA student-athlete in each division who has stood out with his overall performance.
The US Lacrosse MCLA Player of the Month will be awarded four times during the season in each division, starting in February and running through May. The recipient of the honor will receive a free one-year membership to US Lacrosse, a $55 value, in addition to national recognition.
“Earning monthly recognition from the national governing body of our sport is a tremendous honor for our student-athletes and we’re thankful USL is on board again this spring,” said MCLA president Ken Lovic. “US Lacrosse has always been very supportive of the MCLA and we’re pleased that will continue into 2017.”
The award will be based on statistical prowess, opponent strength and team success, along with other factors, and will be released shortly after the end of the month. Coaches may submit their nominations by the end of the month to firstname.lastname@example.org. Only nominations from coaches will be considered.
