Brett Queener Named To The 2013 Major League Lacrosse All-Star Team
Full MLL Release Of All-Stars
BOSTON – For the fourth time in his career and for the second consecutive year, Brett Queener has been named a 2013 Major League Lacrosse All-Star, announced Monday, June 24.
Queener, a 2007 United States Inside Lacrosse Association All-America Honorable Mention selection at UAlbany, is having one of his best seasons at the major league level since being drafted in 2008. The Penn Yann, N.Y. native leads the majors with a .620 save percentage and is third with an 11.26 goals against average amongst goalkeepers.
In his six-year major league career, playing for the Hamilton Nationals for the last three, Queener is one of four Major League Lacrosse goalkeepers named to the all-star squad. He is accompanied by Drew Adams (New York Lizards), Jesse Schwartzman (Denver Outlaws), and Kip Turner (Chesapeake Bayhawks).
The 38 players named as all-stars will be divided into two teams, as selected by the winners of the MLL Ultimate Fan Fantasy contest. Cameron MacKenzie and Frank Ranfone will pick their teams playground-style to form their very own All-Star squads to compete in the game. Several All-Stars will also participate in the Half-Time Skills competition which will include Fastest Shot, Accuracy and Freestyle contests. The All-Stars will wear specially designed jerseys that will be auctioned off following the game to benefit JDRF, the 2013 All-Star Game’s charity.
The MLL All-Star Game, presented by Moe’s Southwest Grill, takes place on Saturday, July 13, at 7:00 pm in Charlotte, N.C., at American Legion Memorial Stadium, and will be broadcast live on ESPN2.
