Denison (Ohio) University freshman Luke Walsh (Nichols) was named Newcomer of the Year by a vote of the North Coast Athletic Conference men’s lacrosse coaches.
Walsh, who also attended Deerfield (Mass.) Academy, was a first-team all conference choice as well. Through 17 games, he was tied with teammate Eddie Vita, a senior, for the league lead in points with 61. Walsh had 43 goals and 18 assists.
Denison (17-0) will play in the NCAA Division III tournament, which starts next week.
