UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – Inside Lacrosse named its inaugural Media All-America teams on Sunday evening, with Nittany Lions Nick Aponte, Gerard Arceri and Chris Sabia all earning All-America Honorable Mentions.

The trio helped guide Penn State to a program record-tying 12 wins and the fourth ever appearance for Penn State in the NCAA tournament.

Aponte, a two-time consensus First Team All-Big Ten performer, capped off a stellar season with 24 goals and 33 assists for 57 points, tied for 10th most in a single season in program history.
