FORT COLLINS, Colo. (June 18, 2010)—The Colorado State University Men’s Lacrosse team is happy to announce its award winners for the 2010 season. CSU featured ten players on the Rocky Mountain Lacrosse Conference All-Conference team and four on the Men’s Collegiate Lacrosse Association All-America squad. The Rams also swept the individual awards in the RMLC, taking Offensive Player, Defensive Player and Coach of the Year honors.
