Last week, we listed a litany of men’s lacrosse awards for Hull’s Shane Weber. That same day, he earned the highest of all of them. Weber, along with his Alfred University teammate Garrette Briggs, was named to the 2021 United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) All America team.
Weber, a four-time All-Empire 8 selection, finished second in the Empire 8 with 2.88 caused turnovers per game, a figure which ranks 17th in all of Division III. Starting in eight contests, the four-year team captain finished with four goals and one assist for five points offensively, adding 40 ground balls and 23 caused turnovers on the defensive end. Weber finishes a stellar AU career as the program’s all-time leader in caused turnovers with 154.
‘Shane was our best lacrosse player and absolutely deserving of being an All-American,” his coach, Jason Lockner, said. “His love for the game and work on and off the field combined with his athleticism helped bring him this honor.
The varsity baseball team awoke from its lumber slumber on Friday and routed Norwell, 13-1. Max Iorio had four hits, Ben Olivieri had three hits and an RBI and Aiden Robey also had three hits and 3 RBI. Robey also earned the win on the mound, going five innings and striking out seven batters. On Wednesday, the bats were silenced again, as Hull dropped a 9-2 decision to Mashpee. Eighth-grader Luke Dunham had two hits for the Pirates (2-9).
