PERRY, N.Y. - Ben Judy '17 and Stephen LaTona '17 have both been named to the USILA/Nike Scholar All-America team in selections announced recently by the organization.

Judy and LaTona are the first two Shenandoah University men's lacrosse players to earn Scholar All-America honors.

The duo each earned All-ODAC honors three times in their career with LaTona named as the ODAC Scholar-Athlete of the Year for men's lacrosse in both 2016 and 2017 and Judy as the first SU men's lacrosse player to be named first team All-ODAC.

LaTona graduated as the all-time leading scorer in program history with Judy the all-time leader in saves and goalkeeper victories.

Last month, the pair played in the USILA North/South All-Star game with LaTona scoring two goals and Judy making four stops in 30 minutes of action.

"This is a great honor for these two," head coach Tim Marshall said. "They exemplify what it means to be a student-athlete at Shenandoah and I am incredibly proud of them."

To earn USILA Scholar All-America honors, the student must have completed his senior year academically, have at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA and conducted themselves in a manner that has brought credit to himself, his institution, and to college lacrosse both on and off the field. He must also be an All-American, a member of a North/South team, or an outstanding league or conference player. 

LaTona graduated with a 3.90 GPA as a finance major and Judy a 3.88 as a business major. Judy was named as the Class of 2017 Athletic Director's Award winner for men (academics, athletics and community service) with LaTona picked as the Class of 2017 Male Student-Athlete Award winner.

The pair are two of eight to be honored from the ODAC.
