COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Jack Krietler's Colorado College career came to a deserving conclusion when he was named an honorable-mention All-American by the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA).
Kreitler recorded career highs of 31 goals and 40 points while leading the Tigers to a 10-6 overall record and their second consecutive at-large appearance in the NCAA Division III Men's Lacrosse Championship.
The senior midfielder was named the Most Valuable Offensive Player of the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference championship game after scoring three times during CC's 13-7 victory at Southwestern University.
Less than a week later, Kreitler struck for three goals and set up the game winner in overtime as Colorado College sealed its postseason berth with an 11-10 triumph over West Region rival Whittier College.
Kreitler recorded multiple goals 10 times this season, including the 13-10 loss at Amherst College in the first round of the national playoffs. He also posted multiple points on 11 occasions - including a career-best five during the 16-4 win over Southwestern and the 10-6 victory over Division II Adams State College.
The native of Fairfield, Conn., earned first-team all-SCAC accolades for the second year in a row after finishing among the conference leaders in five statistical categories.
Kreitler ranked third in goals (1.83) and points (2.50), and tied for sixth in assists (0.67) per game. He also led the league in total shots (7.83) and tied for fifth with three man-up tallies.
Kreitler, who graduated on May 19 with a degree in international political economy, finished his career with 93 goals, 25 assists and 118 points.
