HANOVER, N.H. - Recent graduate and 2018 captain Jack Korzelius was named a United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) Scholar All-American, as announced by the league on Monday.

He is the first Big Green men’s lacrosse player to be named a scholar All-American since Phil Hession in 2015.

In 1989, the USILA Scholar All-America Program was established to recognize student-athletes from member institutions who have distinguished themselves academically, athletically and as citizens of their communities.

An All-Ivy second team honoree hailing from Purchase, New York, Korzelius was one of three players to appear in and start all 13 games throughout the season. He was first on the team in man-up tallies (4), second in goals (20) and third in points (23).

He started his senior season off on a high note by scoring the game winner against Canisius with just one second to go, leading Dartmouth to a 13-12 victory.

In April, Korzelius became the ninth Big Green player in program history to appear in the Major League Lacrosse (MLL) Draft, being selected by the Atlanta Blaze with the 56th overall pick.
