Following a 2019 campaign that saw him post career numbers, Terrier men's lacrosse senior Justin Dionne has been named an All-North Coast Athletic Conference honoree, announced the NCAC on Thursday morning.
The top scorer for the Terriers this season, Dionne racked up 44 points over the course of the year, totaling a career-high 18 goals while tallying 26 assists. He also posted 52 ground balls and was one of four Terriers to start in all 15 games during the 2019 campaign.
Dionne's 26 assists marked the second time in his Terrier career that he broke the single-season assist record. He notched an assist in 12 of 15 games breaking the previous record of 25 which was held by Hunter Jenkins last season.
Dionne registered at least one point in 14 of the 15 games during 2019, tallying multi-point efforts eight times. His best game came in a 16-15 victory over Heidelberg University as he set the Terriers single-game points (9) and assists (7) records while scoring the game-winning marker in overtime.
Averaging just under three points per game, Dionne posted five multi-goal performances, including dropping a career-best four in wins over Franciscan (Feb. 23) and Bethany College (March 13).
The All-NCAC honor puts a bow on a stellar career for Dionne, who became just the fourth player in school history to rack up 100 career points. He finished with 108 points which ranks fourth on the all-time list.
The longest-tenured Terrier in program history, Dionne finished his career having played in 56 career games, the most of any player. He finishes his four years as the career record holder in assists (69 while also ranking among the leaders in ground balls, man-up goals, shots and shots on goal.
The honorable mention selection was the first of Dionne's career and he leaves as a member of the winningest senior class in program history.
