Four OSU men’s lacrosse players honored as USILA All-American Scholars

Four members of the Ohio State men’s lacrosse team were honored as USILA All-American Scholars last Friday — a program record.

Close defenseman Joey Salisbury, midfielder Lukas Buckley, midfielder Ryan Terefenko, and attackman Tre Leclaire all achieved the prestigious distinction. The four make up Ohio State’s No. 18, 19, 20, and 21 Scholar All-Americans in program history. It makes nine consecutive years at least one Buckeye has earned the honor.

The USILA Scholar All-America Program was established to recognize student-athletes from USILA member institutions who have distinguished themselves academically, athletically and as citizens of their communities. The USILA Selection Committee annually selects an overall team representing Division I, II and III. Ohio State extended its streak to six consecutive years with multiple honorees.

A Scholar All-American must be nominated by his coach and be a student with a senior year academic standing and a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0 (4.0 scale). In addition to the Scholar All-America distinction, Salisbury, Buckley, Leclaire and Terefenko were all OSU Scholar-Athletes and Academic All-Big Ten honorees.

The following includes bios of each Scholar-All-American received from the university’s athletic department.
