Firstie defender Griffin Schultz achieved Scholar All-American honors from the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA). Schultz is the eighth cadet in Army West Point men's lacrosse history to achieve this high academic distinction. "This is an absolutely amazing honor for a tremendous cadet-athlete," said head coach Joe Alberici. "Griffin represented the very best of us on the field and off the field. His efforts made his teammates and the coaching staff better."
The defender joins James Yastrzemsky (1997), Craig Massie (2008), Brendan Buckley (2013), Sam Somers (2015), Jimbo Moore (2016), Austin Schultz (2016) and Daniel Grabher (2017) who were also named Scholar All-Americans while on the Black Knights' roster. Of Army's eight Scholar All-Americans, seven have been during Coach Alberici's tenure. Schultz boasted a 3.774 grade-point average with an Economics Major and Systems Engineering Track. The senior has made the Dean's List all seven eligible semesters and has achieved a 3.5 GPA and above each semester. In his limited spare time, Schultz tutors his teammates in Economics and Physics.
