Eidenshink and Knostman Named USILA Scholar All-Americans
June 08, 2017
PERRY, N.Y. – Andrew Eidenshink and Jake Knostman of the Fairfield University men's lacrosse team have been named Scholar All-Americans by the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA). The two student-athletes graduated from the University last month following standout careers with the Stags.
Eidenshink was a Dean's List student as a Finance major in Fairfield's Charles F. Dolan School of Business. He appeared in 48 career games with the Stags' defense, including the past two seasons as a starter. A Second Team All-CAA honoree in 2016 and an Inside Lacrosse Preseason All-America Honorable Mention this spring, Eidenshink recorded the first two points of his career in 2017 with a pair of assists during CAA play.
One of 20 candidates nationwide for the Senior CLASS Award, Knostman has earned Dean's List honors in every semester as a double major in Information Systems and Economics. He is a Magis Scholar and a member of Beta Gamma Sigma and Omicron Delta Epsilon – the honor societies for business and economics, respectively. On the field, the two-year co-captain of the Stags scored 54 goals with 15 assists in his career. He finished his career with 62 games played – one appearance shy of the program record.
Fairfield joins Towson as one of only two CAA programs to land multiple honorees on the list.
The Stags finished the 2017 season at 5-9, ending with back-to-back victories over CAA foes #15 Towson – the eventual CAA Champion and a Final Four participant – and Delaware on Conway Field at Rafferty Stadium.
