TOP GUN LACROSSE CELEBRATES ITS 25TH CAMP SEASON

Clams in the NCAA Tournament


Come see which Clams have moved on to the second weekend of tournament play.

After the opening weekend of NCAA tournament play, we here at Top Gun World Headquarters have decided to let you know how all the Clams who make the tournaments did.

So without any further preamble or any adieu, here we go:

#1 ARMY
Tyler Seymour (Senior, Nashua HS, attack)
Performance Comments:
  Tyler is getting this spot not so much because of his stats (1 goal with 3 ground balls), but the fact that Army pulled up the upset against Syracuse 9-8 in double overtime.  Now, there may be people that would list this upset as one of the biggest of all time, but after watching the game (and all the other ones this weekend), I don't know how much of an upset it was.  Don't get me wrong, it was an upset, but not a big as some people might make it.  Army stuck around the entire game, chipping away, and just like the stone cutter analogy Army uses for motivation (they showed the quote during the televised game), the huge stone that was Syracuse cracked in the end.


#2
DUKE
Max Quinzani (Senior, Duxbury HS, attack)
Performance Comments:
  Now there's no way you could call this game an upset, but nobody expected this game to get out of hand the way it did.  With Max adding 4 goals and 1 assist, the Blue Devil (excuse the pun) exorcised their demons, handing Hopkins their worst tournament loss ever and washing away the memories of '05 and '07.


#3 MIDDLEBURY
Chris Teves (Senior, Wellesley HS, midfield)
Performance Comments:
  Chris and Middlebury are the only team that had to play a"Play-in" game to advance past the first round of the NCAA D-3 tournment.  On Wednesday, Middlebury took on Goucher in the tournament "Play-in" game and advanced with a 10-6 win in which Chris added a goal to the cause.  On Saturday, Middlebury took on #12 RPI and made a decisive statement that they belonged in the tournament with a 16-8 victory.  Chris again added a goal.


Tied #4
TUFTS
Jamie Atkins (Senior, Middlesex School, attack)
Sam Gardner (Freshman, Phillips Exeter, defense)
Performance Comments:
  You can't really separate teammates especially when they pretty much put up the exact same stats.  In Saturday's 21-8 win against Endicott, both Jamie and Sam tallied a goal.  The only thing that separated the two on the stats sheet was the 2 ground balls Sam got.


Tied #6
ENDICOTT
Jack Curtis (Junior, Chelmsford HS, attack)
Eric Hagarty (Senior, Lincoln-Sudbury HS, goalie)
Performance Comments:
  Over the two tournament games that Jack played in, he put up 8 points (6 goals, 2 assists.  In both games, Eric tallied 13 saves in each.  Wednesday, Jack's 2 goals and 2 assist coupled with Eric's 13 saves was enough to propel Endicott past Montclair State 8-6.  Unfortunately on Saturday, Jack's 4 goals and Eric 13 saves weren't enough to stop the juggernaught that was Tufts, as the Gulls lost 8-21.


Tied #8
SPRINGFIELD
Pete Sessa (Senior, The Rivers School, defense/LSM)
Mark Eaton (Junior, The Rivers School, midfield)
Performance Comments:
  Wednesday, the Pride of Springfield took on Widener in a "Play-in" game and with the help of a 7 for 9 day at the face-off "X" from Mark (he also had a GB to his credit) and a 2 ground ball, 2 caused turnover performance from Pete, Springfield advanced witha 7-1 win.  Their prize: a match-up with #2 Salisbury.  Mark was limited to 6 of 14 on face-offs and only 1 GB and Pete tallied a goal in a 4-17 loss.

Tied #10 KEENE STATE
Michael Araujo (Junior, Algonquin HS, midfield)
Cam Sousa (Junior, Hollis-Brookline HS, attack)
Performance Comments: 
The week started off well for the Keene State Owls as they drew Castleton State in a "Play-in" game.  With both Cam and Mike chipping in a goal apiece, Keene State won 21-7.  Unfortunately, Keene State was then matched up with #3 Cortland and dropped the contest 6-18.
