Stony Brook, N.Y. - Two-time All-American goalie Kip Turner was selected by the Boston Cannons with the second overall pick in the 2007 Major League Lacrosse draft Thursday night at Stony Brook University.
Turner finished with a .552 save percentage this season while allowing fewer than eight goals per game. An All-ACC choice this season, he recorded a career-high 144 saves and finished his career 10th in school history with 412 saves. He earned honorable mention All-American honors this season and led the Cavaliers to the 2006 national championship.
"We're thrilled to have Kip part of our team," Boston head coach Bill Daye told Bostoncannons.com. "He is an outstanding goalie, he's a leader and someone we expect to have involved with our organization for a long time to come."
Thompson was named second-team All-American this spring for the second year in a row. One of the top all-around middies in the country, he scored 11 goals and added nine assists this season, while winning more than 56 percent of his faceoffs. He was one of only seven midfielders this season to score at least 40 goals and add 40 assists in a career.
Smith joins 2006 teammates Kyle Dixon and Matt Ward with the Bayhawks, as well as Ryan Curtis and Conor Gill, key members of UVa's 1999 title squad. Smith earned third-team accolades for the second year in a row in 2007. Typically assigned to the opposition's top attackman, he helped spearhead a defense that allowed an average of eight goals per game. A deft stickhandler, he led the nation with 38 caused turnovers and was seventh nationally among close defensemen with 54 ground balls.
