Chapman & Metros Earn Academic Honors

May 30, 2013

Two members of the Middlebury College men’s lacrosse team were named to the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) Scholar All-American team. Seniors Billy Chapman (Greenwich, Conn.) and Andrew Metros (Great Neck, N.Y.) were both honored. To be considered for the USILA Scholar All-American, the student-athlete must “be nominated by his coach and be a student with a senior year academic standing and a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 (4.0 scale). He must also be an All-American, a member of a North/South team, or an outstanding league or conference player.” In addition, the student-athlete “will have behaved in a manner that has brought credit to himself, his institution, and to college lacrosse both on and off the field.”

Chapman was an All-American in both football and lacrosse this season. The senior defenseman was third on the team and 12th in the NESCAC this season with 62 ground balls. He was tied for the team-lead with 24 caused turnovers. Chapman scored four goals and assisted on three others this season, with a season-high nine ground balls in a win over N.E.C. Chapman ends his career with 180 ground balls in 48 games, to go along with nine goals and five assists for 14 points.

Metros had a solid season in the midfield for the Panthers, earning 21 goals and 15 assists for 36 points, second on the team. The senior had 12 goals in his last five games of the season, including a season-high four in the regular season finale at Williams.
