Two members of the Middlebury College men's lacrosse team were honored when the New England Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (NEILA) announced its All-New England teams. Junior Eric Rogers (Lebanon, N.J.) earned a spot on the first team as a defender, while classmate Henry Riehl (Baltimore, Md.) was named honorable mention as an attack.
Rogers, a third-team All-American a year ago and a two-time First-Team All-NESCAC selection, was been the anchor of the Panther defense. He led the team with 17 caused turnovers this season. The junior picked up 34 ground balls, earning a goal against Bowdoin on March 25. He caused three turnovers in the season-opening win at Connecticut College, earning two or more in a game six times. Rogers now owns 87 career ground balls and 45 caused turnovers in three years.
Riehl finished the year with a career and team-high 53 goals this season, placing him in a tie for fifth in the NESCAC. He concluded the year second on the team with 72 points (10th in the NESCAC) to go along with 19 assists. The junior had a point in all 18 games this season, scoring four or more goals on seven different occasions. He earned a season-high seven goals in a win over Endicott, following that up with five at Tufts. The attackman ranked fourth on the team with 48 ground balls, holding down the second spot with five man-up tallies. Riehl now owns 88 goals and 41 assists for 129 points in 52 career games.
