NEWTON, Mass. – The New England Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (NEILA) announced the 2014 Senior Scholar Academic All-Region Teams Tuesday afternoon with Dartmouth’s Mike Olentine and Patrick Resch both earning honors.

Olentine and Resch were named to the Division I squad, a group that featured 24 individuals from 10 institutions.

In order to be selected, student-athletes must be in their final year of eligibility, have posted a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher, and be a significant enough contributor on the field that they were nominated for conference or regional recognition.

Olentine, an economics major from Princeton, New Jersey, led the team in goals (21) and points (28) this season. In his final collegiate game, Olentine broke the Dartmouth record for goals in a single contest, scoring 10 against Holy Cross. That figure made him only the fifth player ever in the history of the Ivy League to reach double-digit goals in a game.

Resch was one of the Big Green’s top players in the midfield all season. The Flourtown, Pennsylvania, native majoring in sociology was second on the team in both ground balls (39) and caused turnovers (12). Resch also chipped in at the offensive end of the field, adding four goals and four assists for eight points.
