NOTRE DAME, Ind. - Juniors David Ulrich (Baltimore, Md.) and Tom Glatzel (Ellicott City, Md.), Notre Dame's top two scorers during the 2000 men's lacrosse season, were named to the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association/STX Honorable Mention All-America team.
The naming of Ulrich and Glatzel to this year's honorable mention squad marks the eighth consecutive year the Irish have had at least one player earn All-America honors. Eight different Notre Dame men's lacrosse players since 1993 have garnered All-America recognition.
The attack duo led the Irish to a 10-4 mark as Notre Dame advanced to the quarterfinals of the NCAA tournament for just the second time in school history following its 15-13 victory over fifth-seeded Loyola in first round action.
Ulrich was the team's second-leading scorer with 17 goals and a team-high and personal best 32 assists for 49 points. The 32 assists by Ulrich, who has been Notre Dame's assists leader in each of his three campaigns, tied the single-season mark set Mike Sullivan in 1990. He ranks second all-time with 81 career assists and his 131 career points places him sixth on the scoring list.
Glatzel tallied personal bests of 38 goals and 18 assists for 56 points this season to lead the Irish in scoring for the first time in his three-year career. In addition to starting all 14 games, he collected 61 ground balls, second most on the team this season. He has 66 career goals and 34 assists for 100 points, and is just the 15th player in Notre Dame history to reach the 100-point mark.
Glatzel and Ulrich both played high school lacrosse at Boys' Latin in Baltimore, Md. Glatzel's twin brother John, who plays defense at Syracuse University, was a second-team All-America honoree after helping the Orangemen to this year's national title.
