BALTIMORE, Md. -- The 2003 USILA Division III Men's Lacrosse
All-America teams have been announced and Washington and Lee claimed three
players on the list, including junior midfielder Dustin Martin (Manlius,
N.Y./Fayetteville-Manlius), junior goalie Ansel Sanders (Weems, Va./Woodberry
Forest) and senior defenseman Noah Weber (Yorktown, N.Y./Yorktown), who
were all honorable mention selections.
Martin earned his first selection to the All-America team
after garnering First Team All-Old Dominion Athletic Conference honors
this season. He finished second on the team in scoring with 31 points
on a team-best 22 goals and nine assists. Through three seasons, Martin

and logged a .608 save percentage.
Weber also garnered his first All-America nod after receiving
First Team All-ODAC honors this season. He helped spearhead a W&L
defense which finished fourth in Division III in scoring defense, allowing
an average of just 5.93 goals per game.
