NEILA All-New England Release
PROVIDENCE, R.I. – The New England Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (NEILA) announced its All-New England Team today [May 16]. The NEILA teams are nominated by head coaches from the New England region and voted on by coaches in each respective division. Senior defensemen Jarrod Neumann (Springfield, Mass.) and sophomore goaltender Tate Boyce (Matthews, N.C.) were each named to the First Team.
Neumann previously had been named to the NEILA All-New England Second Team for two-consecutive seasons (2015, 2016). Neumann finished the 2017 campaign with three points on two goals and one assist. He collected 27 groundballs and caused 18 turnovers. Neumann was named to the Inside Lacrosse Media All-America Third-Team, in addition to earning BIG EAST Defensive Player of the Year, All-BIG EAST First Team honors and BIG EAST All-Tournament recognition.
Boyce earned the lone goaltender spot on the NEILA All-New England First Team roster. As of today (May 16), Boyce is ranks No. 6 in save percentage (.569) and No. 7 in goals-against average (8.05) among all NCAA Division I goaltenders. Boyce earned Inside Lacrosse Media Honorable Mention All-America. He also earned BIG EAST Goalkeeper of the Year, All-BIG EAST First Team and BIG EAST Tournament Team honors.
Together, Neumann and Boyce led the Friars to their second-consecutive BIG EAST Tournament appearance and helped the Friars to reach the Championship game for the first time in program history. The duo also played an instrumental role in helping Providence make its first-ever appearance in the national rankings, in both the USILA / Nike Coaches’ Poll and the Inside Lacrosse / Maverik Media Poll.
