Week one of the college lacrosse season is officially in the books. And while there were outstanding performances across the country, here’s our three stars from week one of the season. 

First Star

Tommy Schelling, Attack, Lehigh

After a strong freshman campaign in 2019, hopes were high for how much of an impact he could make as a sophomore for the Mountain Hawks. And he started off his sophomore campaign as good, if not better, then we’ve seen in a while. The 6-foot, 164-pound attack lit up the scoreboard on Saturday, tallying nine points (7G/2A) in the Mountain Hawks’ win over Utah. 

Second Star

Chase Scanlan, Attack, Syracuse

Loyola transfer Chase Scanlan made his Syracuse debut on Saturday. And he did so with, arguably, the best debut performance of any transfer this season. The sophomore attackman ended the game with seven goals, tying the program record for most goals in a game and becoming one of just 17 Syracuse players all-time to do so. He also broke the Syracuse record for most goals by a player in their first game at Syracuse.

Third Star 

Logan Wisnauskas, Midfield, Maryland

The junior midfielder was simply on fire in Maryland’s double overtime road victory against Richmond on Saturday, putting both his scoring and passing ability on display as he helped lead the Terrapins to victory. Wisnauskas ended the game with seven points (3G/4A). 

Honorable Mention

Cole Williams, Attack, Johns Hopkins (3G/4A)

Brendan Nichtern, Attack, Army (4G/3A)

Alex Rode, Goalie, Virginia (19 Saves)

Eric Holden, Attack, Hobart (5G/1A)

Sean Menges, Defense, Richmond (6GB/6CT)
