After winning the school's first-ever national championship, the Stevenson men's lacrosse team has been selected to receive the Henry Ciccarone Memorial Award by the Touchdown Club of Annapolis as the organization's Collegiate Team of the Year.
"For the past 40 years or so, the Touchdown Club has chosen one college lacrosse team in Maryland to receive this award," president Justin Mullen said. "There was no debate this year as Stevenson's outstanding 2013 season that culminated in the school's first Division III national championship clearly stood out above the rest."
The Mustangs finished with a school-record 22 wins this season and defeated the Rochester Institute of Technology, 16-14, in the national championship May 26 at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia. With 11 All-Americans, the Mustangs also went unbeaten in its first season in the Commonwealth Conference en route winning the conference championship.
Stevenson will be formally presented the Henry Ciccarone Memorial Award at the annual Touchdown Club of Annapolis Lacrosse Cookout and Awards Ceremony on Saturday at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium before the Chesapeake Bayhawks' Major League Lacrosse game against the Denver Outlaws at 7 p.m.
The Touchdown Club of Annapolis event will be located in the Class of '53 Pavilion and begin at 5 p.m.
The Mustangs will then be recognized on the field at halftime that evening.
Stevenson currently has two former players on the Bayhawks' roster in Mike Simon '09 and Jimmy Dailey '11.
