Five Brown Laxers Earn All-Ivy Honors

Providence, Rhode Island -  Five members of Brown's Ivy League Men's Lacrosse Championship team have been named All-Ivy by a vote of the seven Ancient Eight head lacrosse coaches.  Senior Thomas Muldoon (Oakton, VA) earned first team All-Ivy honors for the third consecutive season, while senior midfielder Reade Seligmann (Essex Falls, NJ) and junior midfielder David Hawley (New Canaan, CT) also earned first team honors.  Junior defenseman Peter Fallon (Baltimore, MD) was chosen second team All-Ivy, while junior goalie Matt Chriss (Lutherville, MD) earned honorable mention All-Ivy honors.

 

Head coach Lars Tiffany's 2010 squad earned a share of its second Ivy League Championship in the last three years, and gained a berth in the first ever Ivy League Playoffs to determine the league's automatic berth into the NCAA Tournament.  The Bears will travel to Ithaca, New York to face host Cornell on Friday, May 7, in a semifinal match-up at Schoellkopf Field, starting at 8:00 p.m.

 

An All-American a year ago, Muldoon is the ninth leading scorer in Brown lacrosse history with 151 career points (116 goals, 35 assists).  His overtime goal against Dartmouth on the final day of the season propelled the Bears into the Ivy Playoffs and gave Brown a share of the league title.  A Tewaarton Award candidate as the nation's top player, Muldoon is the Bears' second leading scorer with 37 points (27 goals, 10 assists), and scored a season high four goals against Duke.  He also excels in the classroom and is a finalist for the prestigious Lowe's Senior CLASS Award for notable achievements in four areas of excellence: Classroom, Character, Community, and Competition.

 

Seligmann ranks fourth in the Ivy League with 1.46 assists per game, and is Brown's team leader with 19 assists for the season.  He handed out four assists in Brown's win over Penn, and netted a season high three goals, with four assists, against Hofstra.  Seligmann is Brown's third leading scorer with 31 points (12 goals, 19 assists).

 

Hawley proved to be a vital offensive force for the Bears, scoring 27 goals, third best on the Brown team.  He scored three goals against Hofstra, Providence and Bryant, and netted two goals in seven different games.  His 29 points (25 goals, 4 assists) were fifth on the Brown team this season.

 

An honorable mention All-American a year ago, Fallon earned All-Ivy honors for the second straight season and is the glue behind Brown's defensive effort. He led the Brown team with 36 ground balls, and scored his second career goal against Bryant.  Fallon received a rare honor for a defenseman in being named the Ivy League Player of the Week for his tenacious play in Brown's wins over #8 Cornell and Providence.

 

Chriss ranked third the Ivy League with 10.30 saves per game, posted a 10.18 goals against average, and a save percentage of .513.  He registered a season high 15 saves vs. #7 Duke, and 14 saves in Brown's win over Bryant.  He also turned aside 13 shots in games against Hofstra and #8 Cornell, while playing 748 of a possible 738 minutes in goal for the Bears.
