Shoreham’s Quenneville earns lacrosse recognition

COLCHESTER — Saint Michael’s College men’s lacrosse senior Cooper Quenneville, a Shoreham resident and former Middlebury Union High School standout, was last week named a New England Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (NEILA) All-Region player and chosen to participate in the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) Division I/II North/South Senior All-Star Game, which was played this past Monday at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore.
In that game, Quenneville recorded a goal, an assist, a ground ball and a caused turnover. His two points came 47 seconds apart early in the fourth quarter to give the North a 14-12 lead during the team’s eventual 17-16 loss.
Quenneville was one of four Northeast-10 Conference players chosen for the all-star game. Thirty seniors from Division I and II institutions comprised a North squad.
Of the 56 seniors selected for the all-star game, Quenneville was one of just 13 representing a Division II institution. He was named all-region for the first time after being selected for his initial all-conference honor earlier this month, and was one of 26 Division II players across New England to draw an NEILA All-Region laurel. He was one of six midfielders chosen, landing on the three-player second team.
The versatile Quenneville is the only Division II player in the country with at least 55 face-off wins, 15 goals and five caused turnovers. He led the Purple Knights this spring in ground balls (72), face-off victories (88) and face-off winning percentage (54.7), was second in goals (16) and points (26), stood third in assists (10), and tied for fourth in caused turnovers (9).
Quenneville was fifth in the NE-10 in ground balls, sixth in face-off winning percentage among players who took at least 100 draws, and ninth in face-off triumphs. He finished the season ranked ninth in the North Region in face-off percentage, and 23rd in Division II.
Quenneville, who set the program record for career games played (61), completed his Purple and Gold tenure with 62 points and 179 ground balls.
