MIDDLETOWN, Conn. – Taylor Ghesquiere '18 and Harry Stanton '18 of the Wesleyan University men's lacrosse team were named Division III Scholar All-Americans by the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA).
A Scholar All-American must be a student with a senior year academic standing and a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. On and off the field, student-athletes must have behaved in a manner that has brought credit to himself, his institution, and to college lacrosse while also being named an All-American, a member of a North/South team, or an All-Conference player.
The award is just the latest accolade on a long list of accomplishments by the two stars that recently graduated. This year alone, Ghesquiere was named an All-America Honorable Mention, a First Team IMLCA All-Region selection and a Second Team All-NESCAC recipient. The Economics major finished the year with 57 points on 42 goals and 15 assists. Additionally, his nine man-up goals were most on the team.
In 2018, Stanton was named a Third Team All-American, a First Team IMLCA All-Region selection, and a Second Team All-NESCAC and NEILA All-New England honoree. The Psychology major finished the year with 70 points on 60 goals and 10 assists.
Ghesquiere and Stanton have been a driving force behind Wesleyan's success the past four years, most notably in 2017 and 2018. In the last two years, the Cardinals have won the NCAA Division III Championship, a NESCAC Championship, two Little Three titles, and have been crowned back-to-back New England Champions by the NEILA. Additionally, Wesleyan has reached the Final Four of the NCAA Championships the past two seasons.
