Senior Kenny Sidoryk named US Lacrosse Academic All-American

There are roughly 2,200 varsity boy’s lacrosse players in the state Illinois today.  About 50% of those players are seniors (1,100). Twenty-two qualified senior boys applied for Academic All American.  US Lacrosse’s national guidelines limit Illinois to officially recognize the top twelve (this figure is based on the number of schools that play lacrosse). Senior Kenny Sidoyrk was named one of the twelve boys named Academic All American. Congrats Kenny!
