Baltimore, Md. -- University at Albany’s Jordan Levine has been chosen to the 2008 USILA All-America Team as announced on Sunday, May 25 by the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association.  Levine, who was selected in the honorable mention category, becomes the first UAlbany player at the Division I level to be named to the All-America squad twice after earning second-team honors last year.

 

Levine, a senior midfielder from Bethpage, N.Y., had 13 goals and 20 assists this spring, and ranked 22nd nationally in ground balls at 4.5 per game.  He was voted first-team All-America East Conference for the third consecutive season, the third Great Dane player to earn that distinction.  Levine was also named to the America East all-championship team for the second year in a row after leading the program to its seventh consecutive conference tournament final.

 

Levine finished his career with 57 goals, 56 assists and 321 ground balls.  His assist total ranks eighth on the school’s all-time list.  He accounted for four or more points on 12 occasions as a collegian, and equaled a career-best with five points in the regular-season finale with Stony Brook on April 26.  Levine is one of five UAlbany players to receive USILA Division I All-America recognition.
