Camels Climb to #8 in USILA National Poll
Dachille Named NESCAC Player of the Week
NEW LONDON, Conn.--Connecticut College senior Steve Dachille of Garden City, N.Y. (Garden City High School) has been named the New England Small College Athletic Conference Men´s Lacrosse Player of the Week.
Dachille scored five goals in both of the Camels´ one-goal victories last week, as Connecticut College improved to 8-0 on the season and 4-0 in NESCAC play.
On Tuesday versus Keene St., Dachille recorded the 100th goal of his career in a 12-11 win
against the Owls. He posted his second five-goal performance of the week Saturday at Bowdoin, netting the game-winner in overtime as the Camels erased a five-goal halftime deficit to earn an 8-7 decision over the Polar Bears. Dachille leads the NESCAC with 23 goals scored.
The Camels have climbed all the way up to #8 in the latest United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) Division III National Poll. Connecticut College Head Men´s Lacrosse Coach Dave Cornell says the conference honor is well deserved for his two-year captain.
"Steve is a tremendous leader for our team and he is finding ways to score," Cornell asserted. "He´s being locked off a lot this year but he´s smart and is manufacturing opportunities for himself in other ways."
Dachille has vaulted his way into fifth place on the program´s all-time goal scoring list with 106 goals scored. He has distributed 25 assists and amassed 131 points in a Camel uniform.
