Springfield, Mass. - June 21, 2018 - Springfield College's Jake Reynolds (Scituate, Mass.) was recognized with United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) Scholar All-America honors after a standout 2018 season on the field and in the classroom.
Reynolds graduated in May with a degree in Health Care Management and owned a 3.317 grade point average.
Just the third student-athlete in program history to earn the USILA academic recognition, Reynolds joins Malcolm Lester '89 and Dylan Sheehan '15 as the only Springfield College men's lacrosse student-athletes to be recognized with the national academic accolade. A USILA Scholar All-American must be nominated by his coach and be a student with a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 (4.0 scale), and must also be an All-American, a member of a North/South team, or an outstanding league or conference player.
The two-time NEWMAC Defensive Athlete of the Year, Reynolds totaled 211 saves during his senior season, which led to a save percentage of .558. He owned a 9.52 goals against average and had 15 games with double-digit saves, including four games with at least 15 saves, and was named the Most Outstanding Player of the NEWMAC Championship for the second time in the last three years. Reynolds has also been recognized with all-region honors from the NEILA and ECAC this season, in addition to being a NEWMAC All-Conference First Team and NEILA Academic All-New England selection. On a national scale, Reynolds is one of only two goalkeepers to ever wear a Springfield College men's lacrosse jersey and earn multiple USILA All-America honors, as the netminder earned honorable mention recognition the past two seasons.
