YORK, PA – York College men's lacrosse senior midfielder Seth Krolus (Westminster, Md./Loyola Blakefield) earned prestigious USILA Scholar All-American honors as announced by the organization recently.
A USILA Scholar All-American must be nominated by his coach and must be a student-athlete with a senior academic standing and a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale). He must also be a USILA All-American, a member of a North/South Senior All-Star team, or an outstanding conference player. He will have behaved in a manner that has brought credit to himself, his institution, and to college lacrosse both on and off the field.
Krolus closed out his outstanding York College career with 16 goals and 18 assists for 34 points during his final year in the Green and White. Krolus had 82 ground balls, eight caused turnovers, one game-winning tally and one man-advantage goal.
Krolus earned USILA All-American honors as he was a first team All-Capital Athletic Conference pick for the second consecutive year. He finished fifth in the CAC in ground balls in 2014.
Krolus played in the USILA Senior All-Star game on May 24 in Baltimore, Maryland as part of the NCAA Men's Lacrosse championship weekend.
Krolus capped his career as the Spartans' all-time leader in games played, third in ground balls and third in games started. He registered 97 points on 44 goals and 53 points with 224 ground balls.
Spartan head coach Brandon Childs is proud of Krolus' academic prowess.
"Seth is a great example of a true student-athlete," says Childs. "His ability to balance a very challenging academic major and a high level lacrosse program is an impressive feat. Seth is very worthy of this honor."
Krolus is a nursing major and graduates with a 3.54 GPA. He is the son of Harry and Janis Krolus. He was just one of three Capital Athletic Conference men's lacrosse players to earn the national accolade.
In 1989 the USILA Scholar All-America Program was established to recognize student-athletes from USILA member institutions who have distinguished themselves academically, athletically and as citizens of their communities. The USILA Selection Committee selects an overall team representing Division I, II and III.
