Drexel senior Colin Ambler (Abington) has been named the Colonial Athletic Association’s Men’s Lacrosse Scholar Athlete of the Year.
The conference honors one Scholar-Athlete in each of its championship sports. Nominees for the award must be a starter or important reserve on their team and must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.25. The winners were selected by a vote of the sports information directors at each CAA institution.
Ambler has now won the award in two of the last three seasons. He was named Drexel’s John Semanik Award winner as the school’s top senior male athlete in 2010.
He scored 22 goals and had 16 assists as a senior and finished his career ranked eighth on the career assist list. Ambler, an attackman, is also 11th all-time at the school in both goals and points.
Ambler was named as a USILA Scholar-All-American in 2010 and was the team’s co-captain the last two seasons. Ambler was honored by the CAA in each of his four seasons, once as a First Team pick, twice as a Second Team selection and was CAA Rookie of the Year in 2007.
In the classroom, Ambler compiled a 3.62 grade-point average and will graduate in June with a business administration degree.
In 2008 Ambler was chosen as a Phillylacrosse.com Scholar-Athlete of the week.
