Leggett and Tangredi Named Honorable Mention Preseason All-Americans by Inside Lacrosse
BETHLEHEM, PA. – One week after being named USILA Honorable Mention Preseason All-Americans, Senior Teddy Leggett and Junior Anthony Tangredi received the same award from Inside Lacrosse, as announced on Tuesday. The two Mountain Hawks award winners rank second in the Patriot League. Leggett is a two-time All-League Award winner, while Tangredi was an Inside Lacrosse All-American Postseason Award winner after last season (no All-League honors were given after the shortened season).
Leggett has had an impressive career so far in both midfield and close defense. Recently named sophomore captain, he was named the second team of the All-Patriot League after his first and second seasons. Leggett ended his 2020 junior year with 26 groundballs and five generated sales, good for second and third places in the Mountain Hawks. Leggett was a Pre-Season All-League Award winner last year and starts 2021 with 166 career groundballs (already seventh in program history) and 48 generated sales. His 79 groundballs in 2019 were sixth in program history for one season.
Tangredi appeared in close defense in 2020 and ended the shortened season nationwide with 16 in six competitions in second per game (2.67). Tangredi added 14 groundballs while posting a goal and assisting. He had generated at least sales in all six games, including nine from two Patriot League competitions. Tangredi had made four turnovers against Navy, then five (along with three groundballs) against Holy Cross to earn the Patriot League Defensive Player of the Week award. He opened the season with a seven-groundball triple turnover against Utah. The Tangredi and Mountain Hawks defense ranked 14th nationwide, allowing only 9.67 goals per competition.
Lehigh’s hopes for the 2021 season are high. The Mountain Hawks ranked 16th in two recent pre-season polls – Inside Lacrosse and US Lacrosse.
