Three Binghamton men's lacrosse players earn all-conference honors

America East Conference Release

VESTAL, N.Y.-- Sophomore defender Derrick Danieu, senior midfielder Duncan Streeten and freshman defender Ben Waldron have each received America East all-conference accolades. In addition, senior goalie Larry Kline, senior defender Chris Winter and junior midfielder Steve Carlson were named to the America East Men's Lacrosse Academic squad.

After being named to the All-Rookie squad last season, Danieu was named to the first team this year. He was a key team leader on the defensive end and frequently had the task of covering the opposing squad's top attacker.

"I am thrilled for Derrick," head coach Ed Stephenson said. "He suffered some injuries earlier in the year but he is peaking at the right time."

Streeten was named to the second team after netting nine goals and adding an assist. He was one of the three team captains this year.

"Duncan has been a tremendous student-athlete for us," Stephenson said. "He performed very well this season."

Waldron was named to the all-rookie team after ranking second on the squad with 41 ground balls. He also had a goal and two assists.

"Ben did a nice job for us this year," Stephenson said. "He has tremendous stick skills and we have been able to count on him to get the ground balls."

For the third season in a row, Binghamton had the most selections on the Men's Lacrosse Academic Squad. All three Bearcat players made the squad for the second season in a row. Kline also made the squad in 2007.

"I am even more proud of our team for what we have accomplished in the classroom," Stephenson said. "Every single year we set high standards in the academically and we have been improving each season."

Binghamton is the No. 4 seed in the America East Conference Tournament and will travel to top-seeded UMBC for a 7:30 p.m. game on Wednesday.
