Princeton's Boyle named top Ivy player


Sophomore attackman Ryan Boyle, the quarterback of a Princeton team that won an eighth straight league championship and earned a first-round bye in the NCAA lacrosse tournament, was named the Ivy League Men's Lacrosse Player of the Year, after scoring 17 goals and handing out 27 assists.

Boyle was joined on the first team by former Gilman and current Princeton teammate Damien Davis. Other local players that made the team were Brad Dumont (Princeton, McDonogh) and Scott Marimow (Penn, St. Paul's).

Boyle, The Sun's Player of the Year in 2000, became the second player in Ivy League history to be named Ivy League Rookie of the Year as a freshman and Player of the Year as a sophomore. He has scored at least one point in every game of his career.

Davis, a junior defenseman and The Sun's Athlete of the Year in 1998 and 1999, led a Princeton defense that allowed just 7.92 goals a game. He was a second-team All-American last season.
