May 27, 1998
CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - Six members of the University of Virginia men's lacrosse team were named to the STX/USILA All-American team at this past weekend's NCAA Lacrosse Tournament by the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association. The team was selected by a committee of coaches chaired by an independent representative.
Ryan Curtis and Drew Melchionni were named to the second team, while David Wren was a third-team selection. The Virginia attack of Jay Jalbert, Drew McKnight and Tucker Radebaugh were honorable mention choices.
Curtis, a sophomore defenseman from Potomac, Md., spearheaded the Cavalier defense this season. He collected 19 groundballs and was typically assigned to cover the opponent's top attackman.
Melchionni, a senior from Garden City, N.Y., was regarded as one of the top defensive midfielders in the country. An All-ACC choice in 1998, he scored a career-high 22 goals this season, third-best on the team.
Wren, a senior midfielder from Sudbury, Mass., was one of the team's co-captains this season. He scored 18 goals this spring, including four against Syracuse in the NCAA Tournament quarterfinals.
Jalbert, a sophomore from Huntington, N.Y., led the team with 34 goals, eighth-most in school history. He scored five goals in a game twice this season-vs. North Carolina and Hobart.
McKnight, a sophomore from Virginia Beach, Va., quarterbacked the Virginia offense this season, finishing second in assists (24) and fourth in goals (19).
Radebaugh, a junior from Glen Arm, Md., is one of the most versatile players in the country. He moved to attack from the midfield this season and was the team's leading scorer (56 points). He led the team in assists (26) and was second in goals (30). He joined Melchionni on the All-ACC team this season.
