Louisville, Ky. -- Three Lynchburg College men's lacrosse players earned honorable mention USILA/Nike Division III All-America nods, the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association announced Friday.

Junior attackman Evan Lombardo (Franklin Park, N.J.), junior long-stick midfielder Seamus McDonald (Far Hills, N.J.), and senior midfielder Colin McGuire (Odenton, Md.) all made the list.

Lynchburg has placed at least one player on the All-America teams each of the past 17 seasons.

Lombardo led the Old Dominion Athletic Conference and the Hornets with 66 goals, adding 12 assists and 21 ground balls. He scored in 18 of Lynchburg's 21 games this season, notching five or more goals in six of those games. He was an honorable mention All-American in 2017 as well.

McDonald picked up 51 ground balls and caused 13 turnovers to spur the Lynchburg defense. He was also terrific in transition, scoring four goals with four assists on the year.

McGuire ranked second on the team in assists (32) and fourth in goals (36), scoring in each of Lynchburg's final 15 games and tallying 18 goals in his final five contests. He will take part in the 77th Annual USILA/Nike North-South Division III Senior All-Star Game at 5:30 p.m., Friday, May 25 in Providence, R.I. (Watch here!)

All three were first-teamers on the All-ODAC list in 2018.

Lynchburg finished the season 12-9, won the program's seventh ODAC championship, and reached the NCAA tournament for the seventh-straight season.
