Mark Evanchick, Sean Lulley, and Kyle Gallagher have been honored by Inside Lacrosse for their superb play in the shortened season.

Men's lacrosse players put their hands up and together in a huddle.

Inside Lacrosse has granted senior defender Mark Evanchick, junior attackman Sean Lulley, and senior faceoff specialist Kyle Gallagher of the men’s lacrosse team All-American status. Penn finished 2-3 in the coronavirus-shortened season, including a 14-11 win over No. 10 Duke.

Evanchick, a Third-Team-All American, collected four ground balls and three caused turnovers in the five-game season. The Darien, Connecticut, native was a First-Team All-Ivy selection his sophomore and junior seasons. He was a USILA Third-Team All-American and ECAC First-Team All-Star last year as well.
