4 from Washington are all-conference in lacrosse

In voting by the Centennial Conference head men’s lacrosse coaches, Washington senior attackman Casey Grieves earned a spot on the All-Centennial second team for the second year in a row. He led Washington in goals (56) and points (73).

CHESTERTOWN — Washington senior attackman Casey Grieves repeats on the second team of the All-Centennial Conference lacrosse team and three other Shoremen earned post-season accolades in voting conducted by the conference’s nine head coaches.

Senior defenseman Kevin Wilson and freshman face-off specialist Larry Park also were placed on the All-Centennial second team, while senior midfielder Trey Ritter received honorable mention.

Wilson (Ellicott City, Centennial High School) and Ritter (Norfolk, Va.) also excelled in the classroom, meeting the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association’s criteria as Scholar All-Americans.

Grieves (Easton, Sts. Peter & Paul) led 7-9 Washington in goals (56) and points (73), was third in assists (17) and fourth in ground balls (32). In three years as a Shoreman, he totaled 108 goals, 47 assists and 155 points.

At the end-of-the-year assembly for all sports, Grieves received the Senior Athletic Award as the male athlete who, in the opinion of the Washington College athletic department, achieved the most in athletics.

Wilson moves up from being an honorable mention in 2017. This year, he finished second for the Shoremen with 17 caused turnovers and was tied for third with 33 ground balls.

Park (Fairfax, Va.) won 188 face-offs and scooped up 111 ground balls, leading the team in both categories. In conference-only games, his line included 106 face-offs won and 67 ground balls — tops in the Centennial.

This was a career-defining season for Ritter, who had personal bests in goals (18) and points (29), while tying his personal best in assists (11).

Senior defenseman Cole Handy (Duxbury, Mass.) was Washington’s representative on the conference’s All-Sportsmanship Team.
