Fox Paces MAC Freedom All-Conference Team

from press release

– The Middle Atlantic Conference has announced the 2012 All-Freedom Conference men's lacrosse teams. King's College swept the special awards: Lenny Fox took home the Player of the Year honors, Kevin Sweeney won Rookie of the Year and Andy Orlowski earned Coach of the Year.

Fox, a two-time first-team All-Freedom selection, led the Monarch's with ability to play both ends of the field as an offensive and defensive midfielder. He finished second on the King's team with 26 points on 24 goals and two assists while totaling 32ground balls. Fox also played a key role on defense for the Monarchs who allowed just 7.05 goals pergame. Fox was named to the Inside Lacrosse Magazine Pre-Season All-Middle Atlantic Conferences squad.

Sweeney enjoyed a fine freshman season for King's, finishing third on the team with 26 points on 15 goals and a teamhigh 11 assists while adding 25 ground balls. He scored 15 points in six conference games, including 12 in the final three. In his ninth season at King's, Orlowski led the Monarchs to their first-ever post-season tournament berth since the program's inception in 1999. He did so with a roster which lost 20 players from last year's team. Orlowski's team was built on a solid defense which yielded just seven goals per-game. Saddled with early-season injuries, the Monarchs rebounded from a slow 1-4 start to win six of their last nine regular-season contests. Included was King's first-ever win over Commonwealth Conference contender Lycoming.
