2 NorCal laxers make Academic All Ivy-League

Parker Brown and Roy Lang were named to the Ivy League's All-Academic team yesterday. Most of us know these two for their amazing Lacrosse exploits, but it is a significant accomplishment to be stellar academically while playing a NCAA DI sport. In addition, these two players have been named to All-Ivy Lacrosse teams for their on-field performance. To me, these guys epitomize the scholar-athletes that the Ivy league seeks.  A sound mind in a sound body is the way this dualityt is sometimes put. I believe these two are role models for all NorCal players and I feel lucky to have watched them play! Thank you for setting such a high standard to which younger laxers can aspire.
