Colorado College's Sutro Earns SCAC Men's Lacrosse Elite 19 Award

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. -- In an announcement made today from conference headquarters, Colorado College's John Sutro was named the 2020 SCAC Men's Lacrosse Elite 19 award winner.

Sutro, a junior attack from Kentfield, Calif., currently holds a 3.737 GPA and was named First-Team All-SCAC in 2019 following a 43-point campaign on 26 goals and 17 assists. An economics major, Sutro helped lead the CC Tigers to the SCAC Men's Lacrosse Tournament Championship last season. 

Due to the cancelation of the 2020 spring season, the criteria for the SCAC Elite 19 honor was modified. Awarded to the student-athlete who has completed the equivalent of at least 60 credit hours at his or her current institution and has at least a cumulative 3.25 GPA - for this spring only - a First or Second Team All-SCAC honor at any point of the student-athlete's career was enough to satisfy the all-conference requirement. Normally, the student-athlete must have earned All-SCAC First or Second Team honors in his/her sport for that particular season.

The SCAC Elite 19 award was established prior to the 2018-19 academic year and is meant to recognize the best of the best within each conference sponsored-sport as it relates to both academic and athletic achievement.
