Three Cavaliers Named To 2001 All-ACC Men's Lacrosse Team
April 20, 2001
GREENSBORO, N.C.-Three Cavaliers highlight the 2001 All-Atlantic Coast Conference men’s lacrosse team as selected by the league’s four head coaches. Juniors Conor Gill and Mark Koontz are repeaters from a year ago, while sophomore Chris Rotelli was selected for the first time.
Gill is considered one of the top offensive playmakers in the game today. He leads the ACC and is second in the nation with 28 assists. A first-team All-American last season, Gill is currently tied for 16th in ACC history with 98 career assists.
Koontz has established himself as one of the nation’s outstanding defensemen. A second-team All-American in 2000, he is currently second in the ACC in ground balls with 53. He is a key component to a defense that is ranked second nationally in scoring defense, allowing just 7.50 goals per game.
Rotelli has been Virginia’s most consistent scorer this season and leads the team with 20 goals. Alternating between the midfield and attack, he is the only player on the team to score at least one goal in every game this season. The Rumford, R.I., native is third in the conference in goals this spring.
The complete team is below.
