ROSEMONT, IL -- Johns Hopkins had four players named to the 2017 All-Big Ten Men's Lacrosse Team it was announced today. The Blue Jays placed senior defenseman Nick Fields and junior midfielder Joel Tinney on the first team, while junior attackman Shack Stanwick and sophomore attackman Kyle Marr earned second team (in 2015 and 2016, a first team and an honorable mention team were selected; the honorable mention category has been replaced by second team in 2017).

In addition to the above, senior midfielder John Crawley was one of six Sportsmanship Award recipients in the league. The student-athletes selected for the Sportsmanship Award are individuals who have distinguished themselves through sportsmanship and ethical behavior. In addition, the student-athletes must be in good academic standing and have demonstrated good citizenship outside of the sports-competition setting.

Fields makes the jump to the first team after being an honorable mention selection each of the last two years. He has started all 13 games this season and has 22 ground balls and 14 caused turnovers to his credit. A team co-captain, he is tied for the team lead in caused turnovers and his 14 this season are already a career high. Fields is the only Johns Hopkins player to earn All-Big Ten honors in each of the first three years of the league's existence for men's lacrosse.

Tinney, the 2015 Big Ten Rookie of the Year, is making his second appearance on the All-Big Ten Team as he previously grabbed honorable mention status as a freshman. A starter on Hopkins' first midfield in all 13 games this season, he ranks third on the team in goals (18) and points (24) and has scored the game-winning goal for the Blue Jays four times on the year. Tinney also leads the team in ground balls (32), is tied for fourth in caused turnovers (6) and is fourth in shooting percentage among players who have taken 25 or more shots (.367).



Stanwick is also making his second appearance on the All-Big Ten Team after earning a spot on the first team as a sophomore. He leads the team in assists (19) and ranks second in points (40) and goals (21) and his .438 shooting percentage ranks second on the team among players who have taken at least 25 shots. Stanwick has registered at least one point in all 13 games this season and will carry a 46-game goal-scoring streak into the Big Ten Semifinals.

Marr is making his first appearance on the All-Big Ten Team. He currently leads the team in goals (24) and points (41) and ranks second in assists (17) -- all three of those totals are career highs. He has a team-high 10 multi-point games on the year and has six games with three or more points to his credit.

Third-seeded Johns Hopkins (8-5, 3-2 B1G) will play second-seeded Ohio State (12-3, 3-2 B1G) in the Big Ten Semifinals on Thursday, May 4 (7:30 pm). The winner advances to take on the winner of the game between top-seeded Maryland and fourth-seeded Penn State in the championship game on Saturday, May 6 (7:30 pm). The tournament is being hosted by Ohio State and all three games in the tournament will air live on the Big Ten Network.
