Hempstead, NY - Four Hofstra University men's lacrosse players have been named to the 2009 United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association Division I All-America Team, the USILA announced Thursday. All four players, senior midfielders Michael Colleluori and Anthony Muscarella, junior defender Christian Scuderi and sophomore attackman Jay Card, were USILA All-America Team honorable mentions.

Colleluori, who was named to the USILA North-South Senior All-Star Game earlier this week, started all 15 games and earned All-CAA first team honors this season. The Holmes, Pennsylvania native was second on the Pride and sixth in the CAA with a career-best 36 points. He tallied 14 goals and a team-high and career-high 22 assists on the season. Colleluori led the CAA in assists average with a 1.47 mark. He posted nine multi-point contests including a career-best six points (2-4) at Brown. Colleluori, who is also a CAA and a USILA Scholar-Athlete nominee, played in 62 games during his Pride career and recorded 43 goals and 45 assists for 88 points.

Muscarella, who was also named to the USILA North-South Senior All-Star Game earlier this week, played in 14 games for the Pride in 2009. The Wantagh, New York native was second on the team in goals with 19 and assists with nine, and third in points with 28. He recorded 10 multi-point contests including four goals at Towson on April 11. Muscarella ranked ninth in the CAA in points average with a 2.0 mark. He played in 60 games during his Hofstra career and tallied 63 goals and 25 assists for 88 points. Muscarella was a USILA All-America honorable mention in 2008.

Card, a sophomore from Caledon, Ontario, Canada, was named the CAA Player of the Year in 2009 after leading the conference in goals per game (2.33) and placing third in points per game (2.93) as well as game-winning goals with seven. He also picked up 30 ground balls and had five man-up goals on the year. His 33 goals and 42 points are career-highs for the first team All-CAA selection. In 2008, Card was named the CAA Rookie of the Year and selected to the All-CAA second team as well as the CAA All-Rookie Team after recording 27 goals and 12 assists. Card is the tenth Hofstra player to be named conference Player of the Year since 1988 and the first since Chris Unterstein won the award in 2006.

Scuderi, a native of West Islip, New York, earns his third USILA All-America honor in 2009 but his first on the Division I level. The New York Tech-transfer was a two-time USILA Division II All-America second team selection in 2007 and 2008 for the Bears. Scuderi was named to the All-CAA first team in 2009 after anchoring a Pride defense that was second in the conference and 22nd in the country with an 8.46 goals against average. He recorded 33 ground balls and forced 10 turnovers on the season.

The four selections equals the third most picks in school history and is only the fourth time that Hofstra has had four or more players voted to the All-America team. In 1955, Hofstra had seven selections during its 14-2 season. In 2006, the Pride had six players named during their record 17-2 campaign. The four picks this season equals the 1960 team total.
