While most boys' lacrosse players have wrapped their seasons and will be watching what's left of the state tournament as spectators, several were recognized for their individual success in 2019 earlier this week.
The Minnesota State High School Boys Lacrosse Coaches Association released its annual All-American honors along with its all-state lists.
Fifteen players were chosen All-American, with Benilde-St. Margaret's leading the way with four selections.
Red Knights junior attackman Jack VanOverbeke led the state with 85 points (41 goals, 44 assists) through the section playoffs. Faceoff specialist Jack Budniewski, longstick midfielder Tucker Turrittin and defender Seamus Foley also received All-American and first team all-state recognition.
East Ridge, Minnetonka and Stillwater each had two All-American selections.
