But first, in case you missed the news last night, the nine all-Americans representing the Hudson Valley were selected. The group is headed up by three players from Lakeland/Panas, the Section 1 Class A champions: senior midfielder Shawn Honovich, senior defenseman Andrew Fazio and junior midfielder Conor Prunty.
Yorktown’s Kevin Interlicchio, who became the school’s all-time leading goal scorer, is the lone two-time honoree. Section 1 Class B champion John Jay was represented by a pair of Johns Hopkins-bound players: junior attackman Mike Daniello and senior defenseman Jameson Pickel. St. John’s University-bound senior attackman Ryan Fitzgerald, the all-time leading scorer in Put Valley history, represented the Class C champion Tigers. Also named were senior attackman John Brandofino (Mahopac) and senior goaltender Bobby Sincero (Hen Hud).
