BETHLEHEM, Pa. – Lehigh men’s lacrosse senior Mike Sisselberger was recognized by USA Lacrosse Magazine on Tuesday afternoon with honorable mention All-America honors. Sisselberger has been named an All-American for a second straight season, following first team honors across all outlets in 2021. Sisselberger stands third nationally in faceoff percentage at 62.8 percent (226-of-360) and second in groundballs (141) and groundballs per game (9.40).

Sisselberger’s 141 groundballs are third in program history for a season, and tied for third in Patriot League history. The two-time reigning Patriot League Faceoff Specialist of the Year was named the league’s Faceoff Specialist of the Week three times in 2022 to increase his already league record to nine in his career. One of 25 Tewaaraton Award nominees, Sisselberger won 18-of-22 against Navy in the Patriot League opener, 17-of-25 at Army West Point and 20-of-27 vs. Bucknell. He opened the season with a dominant 14-of-16 effort at NJIT and also won 20-of-26 against Holy Cross. Sisselberger won 15-of-23 against Navy in the Patriot League Quarterfinals then 18-of-28 at Boston University in the semifinals, including all five in the fourth quarter and one in overtime.

Sisselberger is up to 325 career groundballs – good for second in program history. His 226 faceoff wins this season were second in Lehigh men’s lacrosse history, passing his own total of 225 last season (and only behind Conor Gaffney’s 249 in 2019). It was also good for fourth in league history.

The Mountain Hawks ended their season 8-7, advancing to the Patriot League Semifinals for a fourth straight season and Patriot League Tournament for an 11th straight year (the longest active streak in the league).
