Attack Luc Swedlund (Randolph, NJ) was chosen USILA All-America Honorable Mention for the third time (2022, 21, 19) and faceoff specialist Tyler Horvath (Chalfont, Pa./Central Bucks South) collected his first USILA All-America Honorable Mention accolade.

Poli became the first Stockton player ever to be selected to one of the three USILA All-America teams that are above the Honorable Mention list. He, Swedlund and Horvath led the Ospreys to a 17-3 record plus the program’s second CSAC championship, NCAA Tournament berth and NCAA Tournament win.

Poli ranks second in the nation in points per game (6.65), tied for second in total points (133), third in total assists (68) and eighth in assists per game (3.40). The junior set school records for points and assists in a season this spring. Poli also moved into third in Stockton history in career goals (154), assists (124) and points (278).

Poli’s 133 points tied the seventh highest season total in NCAA Division III history. He added his first USILA All-America honor to CSAC Player of the Year and CSAC First Team for his outstanding play this season. He was selected CSAC Player of the Week four times and named to the USILA D3 Team of the Week once this spring.

Horvath, a sophomore, ranks seventh in the nation in faceoff wins (287), 15th in ground balls (161) and 20th in faceoff winning percentage (.667). His 161 ground balls are the second highest season total in Stockton history.

Horvath’s ability to win faceoffs, coupled with the offensive prowess of Poli and Swedlund, helped the Ospreys become the No. 2 scoring offense in Division III (20.20 gpg). He was voted CSAC First Team and named CSAC Defensive Player of the Week four times this season.

Swedlund is fourth in the nation in goals per game (4.30), tied for fourth in total goals (86) and tied for 18th in total points (101). The senior’s 86 goals were the second-best mark in program history, surpassed only his 100 markers in 2019, as well as tied for the 12th highest season total ever in NCAA Division III.

Swedlund finished his career third all-time in Division III with 279 career goals and tied for 20th in Division III with 339 career points. During the season, he became the first Stockton player to reach the 200-goal and 300-point marks.

In addition to his third USILA All-America Honorable Mention nod, Swedlund was chosen CSAC First Team, CSAC championship MVP and CSAC Player of the Week once this season.
