Schwartz, Zimmerman represented the Crimson during championship weekend (Justin Lafleur).

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Graduating seniors Peter Schwartz and Carl Zimmerman competed in the 2014 USILA/LaxWorld Division I-II North-South All-Star Game this past Monday, held at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, Md., as part of the 2014 NCAA Men's Lacrosse Championships.

Schwartz and Zimmerman suited up for the North team with Schwartz wearing the No. 9 previously reserved for Zimmerman when in a Crimson uniform, and Zimmerman wearing No. 14. The tandem had an impact on the game with Schwartz registering one goal and one assist, and Zimmerman contributing two ground balls and one caused turnover. Unfortunately their efforts were not enough, however, as the South prevailed to take a 17-16 victory.

Schwartz and Zimmerman were the 23rd and 24th members of the Crimson to take part in the All-Star event. Chris Wojcik '96, The Frisbie Family Head Coach for Harvard Men's Lacrosse, is also an alumnus of the showcase, having suited up for the North squad in 1996.

Schwartz will graduate tomorrow with a 3.145 GPA as an economics concentrator. A co-captain of this year's team, Schwartz helped lead the Crimson to its first Ivy League championship in 24 years and the program's first appearance in the NCAA tournament since 2006. A native of Jenkintown, Pa., he set career-highs across the board with 46 points on 25 goals and 41 assists, and was recognized for his efforts with selection to the All-Ivy League second team, All-NEILA first team, USILA Scholar All-America Team and to the NEILA Academic All-Region Team. He finished his career having scored 100 career points (50g, 50a), including 80 (43g, 37a) the last two seasons.

Zimmerman will walk across the stage having earned a 3.389 GPA as a government concentrator. The Homer, N.Y., native also set career-highs in goals and points, finding the back of the net 15 times while adding eight assists for 23 points. Zimmerman was an All-Ivy League honorable mention selection and joined Schwartz on both the USILA Scholar All-America Team and NEILA Academic All-Region Team. For his career, Zimmerman totaled 55 points (33g, 22a) with 42 (26g, 16a) coming in his junior and senior campaigns.
