Jake Froccaro Named Top Ivy Rookie; Schreiber, MacDonald First-Team All-Ivy
Tom Schreiber has joined an elite group of Princeton men's lacrosse players, with an even more elite group out there, though it will have to wait a year.
Schreiber became the 12th player in Princeton men's lacrosse history to be a three-time first-team All-Ivy League selection. Should he repeat next year, Schreiber would become just the second Princeton player and fourth Ivy League player ever to be a four-time first-team selection.
Jake Froccaro was named the Ivy League Rookie of the Year, becoming the 11th player in program history to win that honor. In all, six Princeton players were named All-Ivy.
Mike MacDonald, who has put up goal-scoring numbers his first two years matched only by Jesse Hubbard and Chris Massey, was a first-team All-Ivy League choice.
Jeff Froccaro, Kip Orban and Derick Raabe were second-team picks. Jake Froccaro was an honorable mention selection in addition to being the Rookie of the Year.
Jake Froccaro has 22 goals and nine assists, making him one of six Princeton freshmen ever to reach at least 23 goals. He also needs one assist to make him the second Princeton freshman ever with at least 20 goals and 10 assists (along with Peter Trombino).
Schreiber, who led the team in scoring as a freshman and sophomore, leads Princeton in points with 51 (25G, 26A). He is one of nine players in program history to have two seasons of at least 50 points, and the only one to do so as a midfielder both times. He has at least three points in every game this season.
MacDonald leads the team with 35 goals; Jason Doneger, with 36 in 2004, was the last Princeton player with more than that for a season. MacDonald has 55 goals in his career, making him, Hubbard and Massey (who rank 1-2 all-time in goals at Princeton) as the only players to reach at least 55 by the end of their sophomore year. MacDonald is second on the team with 47 points.
Jeff Froccaro is second on the team in goals with 29 and third in points with 41. A first-team All-Ivy selection last year, Froccaro has career highs in goals and points, while also winning 26 of 45 face-offs. He ranks 17th all-time at Princeton with 83 career goals.
Kip Orban vaulted into an elite midfield scorer as a sophomore, and he has 23 goals and six assists this year after an eight-goal, three-assist freshman year. Orban is one of only five Princeton midfielders in the last 25 years to reach at least 23 goals his sophomore year.
Derick Raabe moved from the No. 2 longstick midfielder to an All-Ivy defenseman who leads Princeton with 10 caused turnovers and 63 ground balls. His ground ball total is the highest by a Princeton player since Matt Bailer had 68 in the 2000 season.
Cornell's Rob Pannell was the Ivy Player of the Year. He also became a four-time first-team All-Ivy selection, joining Princeton's Chad Wiedmaeir and Cornell's Max Siebald as the only players to do so.
Princeton plays Cornell in the Ivy League tournament semifinals Friday at 8 in Ithaca.
