Hoboken, N.J. -- University at Albany’s Jordan Levine was chosen in the first round of the Major League Lacrosse Collegiate Draft by the New Jersey Pride on Wednesday, May 28.  Levine, the 10th overall selection, becomes the second player in the UAlbany program’s history to be taken in the MLL Draft.  Frank Resetarits was chosen in the third round last year.
            “It’s a great feeling to be drafted,” said Levine, a midfielder who was named to the USILA All-America squad for the second consecutive year last weekend.  “I will be close to home where my family and friends can see me play.  After the season general managers and coaches started calling, and that’s when I knew this really could happen.”

A native of Bethpage, N.Y., Levine was voted to the All-America East Conference first team in three consecutive seasons.  In 2008, he was third on the UAlbany squad in scoring with 13 goals and 20 assists in leading Great Danes to their seventh straight appearance in the conference tournament championship game.  Levine, who led the program to pair of NCAA Tournament berths, finished his career with 57 goals and 56 assists for 113 points and accounted for 321 ground balls.

“I am thrilled for Jordan and our lacrosse program,” UAlbany coach Scott Marr offered.  “To be selected in the first round shows how much respect he has earned in the lacrosse world.  It’s a proud day for UAlbany lacrosse.”

In addition, UAlbany goalkeeper Brett Queener was drafted in the fifth round (48th selection overall) by the Rochester Rattlers.  Queener, a three-time all-conference standout from Penn Yan, N.Y., ranked 14th among the NCAA Division I leaders in goals against average (7.85) and 16th in save percentage (.579) as a senior.  He is fifth on the school’s all-time saves chart with 467 and stopped double-figure shots against 27 opponents.  Queener, who scored his third career goal with a goalie stick in the regular-season finale against Stony Brook on April 26, was also used as an attacker in man-advantage situations.

“I am excited for and proud of Brett,” Marr said.  “He is made for the MLL; his style of play is a perfect fit.  With his ability to play two positions, he is an asset.”
