Receiving individual awards, pictured left to right, Cabrini College’s Steve Colfer is the ECAC Coach of the Year, Jimmy Dailey of Stevenson University is the ECAC Offensive Player of the Year and Brendan Englert from Catholic University of America is the ECAC Rookie of the Year.

Dailey was named the Division III Outstanding Player of the Year by the U.S. Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association after he led the nation with 118 points and 58 assists this season, both of which were school records. Stevenson’s career leader with 329 points and 163 assists, the senior attackman earned his third All-America first team selection while being selected as the 2011 Capital Athletic Conference Player of the Year. He capped his collegiate career by totaling five points and winning MVP honors at the 2011 USILA North/South All-Star Game.

Englert, an attackman, received All-Landmark Conference first team honors and is CUA's first-ever conference rookie of the year. He led the Cardinals in assists (23) and points (61) to go along with 38 goals and 37 ground balls. He scored multiple goals in 13 games, with a career-high of five versus Goucher.  He also was chosen the Landmark Conference Offensive Player of the Week on May 2.

Coach Colfer posted a 13-6 overall record, including a 6-0 league slate, in his 11th year at the helm. Colfer is a six-time Colonial States Athletic Conference Coach of the Year, last earning the award this spring.  He has guided the Cabrini men's lacrosse program to national prominence since his arrival at the school, winning 11 straight CSAC titles and appearing in 10 consecutive NCAA tournaments, including a trip to the second round in 2011. He captured his 150th career victory on the Cavaliers sidelines against Marywood in this year’s CSAC title game.
