CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Six members of the Harvard men's lacrosse team have been named to the New England Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (NEILA) Academic All-Region Team, association officials announced Thursday.

Seniors Ian Ardrey (economics), Bobby Duvnjak (History), Stephen Jahelka (government), Walker Kirby (economics), Sean Mahon (Germanic languages and literature), and Will Walker (sociology) were honored by the association. To be selected for this team, 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.

Duvnjak and Kirby were both All-Ivy League selections, with Duvnjak earning a first team nod and Kirby  second team plaudits. Jahelka and Mahon served as co-captains for a second year, helping the Crimson to an appearance in the Ivy League Tournament championship game, while Ardrey (13g, 10a) and Walker (23g, 6a) combined for 52 points.
