Zeller, Coatsolonia win lacrosse honors

May 27, 1994|By Steven Kivinski

The 50th annual C. Markland Kelly Awards, given annually to the best lacrosse players in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association, formerly the MSA, were announced at Wednesday night's banquet at Martin's Eudowood.

Loyola senior defenseman Karl Zeller was selected as the A Conference and overall winner while Tony Coatsolonia of John Carroll was chosen from among the six nominees from the B Conference.

Zeller was only the third defenseman in the last 30 years to win the overall award and his selection marked the fourth straight year that the award went to a University of Virginia-bound player. Michael Watson (St. Paul's), Tim Whitely (St. Paul's) and Tony Nugent (Calvert Hall) were the past three recipients and all are now starring for the Cavaliers.

"Defensive statistics are hard to come by when compared to goals and assists but I do not think that any other player has been more responsible for their team's success than Karl has been for Loyola," Loyola coach Joe McFadden said in his nomination for Zeller.
