ODAC Announces 2023 All-ODAC Men's Lacrosse Awards

FOREST, Va. --- ODAC champion Washington and Lee University collected a league-high 12 all-conference honors and split four special individual honors with Roanoke College evenly to headline the 2023 All-ODAC Men's Lacrosse Awards.

Maroons attackman Luke Kammerman received ODAC Player of the Year distinction from the league's head coaches, while teammate and defenseman Weston Hammond was tabbed the ODAC Rookie of the Year. Generals mentor Gene McCabe garnered ODAC Coach of the Year laurels from his peers, and W&L defenseman Harris Hubbard earned ODAC/Virginia Farm Bureau Insurance Scholar-Athlete of the Year recognition from the conference's athletic communications personnel.

The list of repeat award winners from last season is a little bit shorter than in some previous years. Of the 48 standouts who earned all-league honors this season, 17 received All-ODAC distinction in 2022. That includes in eight members of the All-ODAC First Team.

Kammerman and Hubbard lead a list of five repeat first teamers. They're joined by the University of Lynchburg's long-stick Chris Darminio and midfielder Riley Mitchell and Hampden-Sydney College defenseman Nick Morgan. Tigers' attackman Ray O'Brien and Lynchburg defenseman Henri Marindin move up the 2022 All-ODAC Second Team, while Randolph-Macon College attackman Jack Smith made the leap from two seasons on the All-ODAC Third Team.

Kammerman, a junior from Trumbull, Conn., is now a two-time All-ODAC First Team honoree. He also earned ODAC Co-Rookie of the Year accolades in 2021. Kammerman, who is joined by his brother Julian as a first team pick by the league's coaches, finished the season second in the ODAC in points (91) and third in goals scored (46) and assists (45). He was also second in shots (143) and third in shots on goal (87). Kammerman recorded at least two points in each of 19 games played this season. He posted four or more points 14 times including a season-high nine points on four goals and five assists in a 19-5 win over Shenandoah on April 1. Kammerman owns career totals of 242 points with 113 goals and 129 assists.

McCabe is in his 17th season as Generals head coach with at least one more game to play in the upcoming NCAA Division III Men's Lacrosse Tournament. This is his third ODAC top coaching honor, joining the awards he received in 2009 and 2019. Washington and Lee, ranked ninth in Division III by the USILA, won their ODAC second-most 12th championship last weekend as the third seed. It was their first title since lifting the league trophy in 2019. McCabe has crossed two coaching milestones this season. He earned his 250th career victory in a 16-12 win over Roanoke in mid-April, and then collected his 200th win at W&L in a 22-8 triumph over Shenandoah in the ODAC quarterfinals. McCabe's career record stands at 256-116 (.688).

Hammond, a first-year from Chattanooga, Tenn., put together a banner first season in Salem, adding this honor to an All-ODAC First Team selection. The Maroons top cover man helped them to an 11.23 goals against average and a trip to the ODAC semifinals. Hammond finished the season second in the ODAC in caused turnovers with 32, while his 60 ground balls rank 15th in the league and third amongst non face-off players. He got forward to register three points on one goal and two assists.

Hubbard, a senior from Madison, Miss., stars on and off the field for Washington and Lee as he pairs this honor with an All-ODAC First Team nod. In the classroom, Hubbard maintains a 3.88 grade point average as an economics major. The two-time ODAC All-Academic honoree is a two-time honoree on the W&L President's List and a five-time W&L Scholar Athlete. He also earned CoSIDA Academic All-District laurels last season. He is a member of the Williams Investment Society and as a Career Fellow for W&L Career Services and as a Generals Repair Club officer.

On the field, Hubbard is now a three-time All-ODAC first team choice. The two-time USILA All-American was picked as a 2023 Preseason All-American by both Inside Lacrosse and USA Lacrosse Magazine. Entering the NCAA Tournament, Hubbard is fourth in the ODAC in caused turnovers with 29 to go with 41 ground balls. He has helped the Generals to an ODAC-best 8.55 goals against average with 169 goals allowed in 20 games. Hubbard got forward to score one goal this season
