The Chesapeake Bayhawks selected midfielder Cameron Holding (Grand Valley State) second overall in the Major League Lacrosse supplemental draft Wednesday afternoon.
The Bayhawks received the pick, as well as the 28th overall selection, in a trade immediately before the draft. As part of the multi-team deal, the Bayhawks sent midfielder Kevin Cooper (Archbishop Spalding, Maryland) and faceoff specialist Matt Dolente (Johns Hopkins) to the New York Lizards; also, All-Star defenseman Kyle Hartzell (Salisbury, CCBC-Essex) went from the Ohio Machine to the Lizards.
Holding was one of 15 players picked by the Bayhawks.
A Michigan native, Holding has played in the National Lacrosse League the past two years. In his career with the Colorado Mammoth, the midfielder has six goals and 13 assists.
In his senior year with Grand Valley State's team, which played at the club level, Holding was named Central Collegiate Lacrosse Association Offensive Player of the Year and the Offensive MVP of the CCLA tournament. Currently playing for the Mammoth, Holding is trying out for the Canadian national team that will compete in the 2014 Federation of International Lacrosse World Championships.
With the 16th overall pick, the Bayhawks selected short-stick defensive midfielder JJ Morrissey (Virginia). Morrissey played for the Boston Cannons in 2011 but did not play in 2012 or 2013. In his career, the Massachusetts native has 121 ground balls, 11 goals and 10 assists.
The Bayhawks used their next two picks to add goalies back to their protected roster. Tyler Fiorito (McDonogh, Princeton) and T.C. DiBartolo (Archbishop Spalding, Mount St. Mary's) were selected 24th and 28th, respectively. Both goalies were on the Bayhawks roster when they won MLL titles in 2012 and 2013.
With the 32nd and 34th picks, the Bayhawks drafted defensemen Kyle Rubisch (Dowling) and Andrew Sellers (Archbishop Curley, Salisbury). Rubish collected 31 ground balls during his 14 games with the Hamilton Nationals; Sellers, who was previously on the Bayhawks roster, had three ground balls in one game last season for the Rochester Rattlers.
Three attackmen were added to the roster with Jack Forster (Penn State) at the 40th pick, Jordan McBride (Stony Brook) at the 88th pick and Jimmy Dailey (Winters Mill, Stevenson) at the 96th pick. McBride played for Denver in 2012 and recorded 38 points on 29 goals and nine assists. Dailey was previously on the Chesapeake roster in 2012 and 2013.
The team got stronger defensively with the 48th, 52nd and 56th picks with JonHayes (Western New England), Sam Ford (McDonogh, Brown) and AnthonySantomo (Pennsylvania), respectively. Hayes previously played for Boston and had four goals and one assist.
Chesapeake then added to its midfield with Will Harrington (Friends, Towson U.) at No. 64, Justin Smith (Francis Scott Key, Salisbury) with the 72nd pick and Jovan Miller (Syracuse) with the 80th pick.
"Although we weren't able to get everyone back, we were pleasantly surprised to bring Tyler Fiorito, Andrew Sellers, Justin Smith and Jimmy Dailey back to our roster," coach Dave Cottle said. "There were a lot of impact players in this supplemental draft, which is unusual. We are excited to see how training camp turns out."
Other draft items of note:
With the first overall pick, the Machine drafted veteran midfielder and former Baltimore Bayhawk Bill McGlone (Maryland). McGlone joined MLL in 2006 after being drafted 13th overall.
Jack Rice (Boys' Latin) was chosen No. 3 overall by the Boston Cannons.
U.S. women's team goalie Devon Wills, who was eligible to be selected as the first women's player in league history, was not drafted.
