Lewis Named to Inside Lacrosse Preseason NEC Team

FAIRFIELD, Conn. - Senior defender Tim Lewis (Katonah, N.Y.) has been selected for the Inside Lacrosse Preseason Northeast Conference Team.  As a team, Sacred Heart men's lacrosse was placed fifth in the coaches poll.  This season will mark the first season that the NEC has officially sponsored men's lacrosse.

Last season, Lewis started each of the first five games for the Pioneers.  He notched his only point of the season on a goal scored in a 13-6 home win over Presbyterian early in the year.  Lewis totaled seven groundballs and seven caused turnovers in only five games played.

Sacred Heart compiled an overall record of 4-11 in 2010 and were one of only two teams to face all five teams from the NEC.  The 2011 campaign gets underway on February 19 as the Pioneers host former CAA rival Hofstra.
