POTSDAM - Five SUNY Potsdam men’s lacrosse players have received All-State University of New York Athletic Conference honors.

Senior midfielder Brady Fremont (Syracuse, N.Y.) was named to the first team, while senior midfielder Derek Frost (Williamsville, N.Y.) and senior goalie Stefan Sloma (Niskayuna, N.Y.) were both named to the second team. In addition, juniors Rob Kunz (Watertown, N.Y.) and Jeff Love (Watertown, N.Y.) both were awarded honorable mention status.

In his fourth season at Potsdam, Fremont has played in all 13 games as a short stick defender, a position considered to be the toughest in lacrosse. On the defensive side of the ball, Fremont ranks second on the team in caused turnovers (15) and has gathered 22 groundballs for the Bears. Although considered a defensive player, his talents have allowed him to be an offensive threat, scoring two goals and assisting on three others for a total of five points this season.

After missing last season to injury, Frost has rebounded to regain his position as an offensive weapon for the Bears. This season he leads the team in goals (20) and is second on the squad in total points (27). His 20 goals match his career-high from 2011, but he has done it in four less games.

Sloma has been a critical asset to the Bears this season, anchoring a strong defense from the goal. He ranks second in the conference in both save percentage (.604) and saves (157) and is fourth in the SUNYAC with a goals-against-average of 8.39. He stopped a career-high 24 shots during the Bears’ April 13 matchup at Oneonta, the most by a Potsdam goalie in eight seasons.

Kunz returns to the All-SUNYAC team this year, after earning second team recognition in 2012. This season Kunz continued to be a key playmaker for the Bears. The captain leads the team in total points with 32 (18g, 14a).

He has also collected 20 groundballs. Kunz matched a career-high of six points with three goals and three assists against Geneseo on April 20.

Love is being recognized by the conference for the first time in his career. The junior missed last season due to illness, but has been a defensive force for Potsdam since his freshman year. This season, Love has been a lock down defender on some of the league’s toughest attackmen. He has also tracked down 20 groundballs.

Tomorrow, the Bears travel to No. 1 SUNY Cortland for a 4 p.m. matchup in the SUNYAC semifinals.
