CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Seniors Jason Gonos and Alex White have been named to the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) Scholar All-America team, the association recently announced.

Gonos will graduate next weekend with a 3.50 cumulative GPA as an economics concentrator. The Annapolis, Md., native has anchored Harvard's defensive unit over the past four years and this season collected 27 ground balls and caused 11 turnovers while helping the Crimson to a 9.97 goals against average. His seven ground balls against Bryant represented a new single-game high for the senior while his three caused turnovers against Albany matched his career best. Gonos was named a finalist for the Senior CLASS Award earlier this spring and was tabbed as an All-Ivy League honorable mention selection.

White, who is also an economics concentrator, has maintained 3.41 GPA throughout his career. An All-Ivy second team pick as a senior, White set career-highs across the board with 31 points on 22 goals and nine assists. The Summit, N.J., native opened the year with hat tricks against UMass and Holy Cross, and scored at least one goal in 13 of the Crimson's 14 contests. He set a single-game high with five total points against the Crusaders, and was named to the Ivy League Honor Roll February 25 following a four-point effort against the Minutemen. White scored multiple goals in seven contests and finished the season scoring multiple points 11 times, including a string of seven straight multiple-point outings to close his career.

Only seniors with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale are eligible for the Scholar All-America team. He must also be an All-American, a member of a North/South team, or be an outstanding league or conference player. Recipients must have behaved in a manner that has brought credit to himself, his institution, and to college lacrosse both on the field and off.
