Sisselberger Named to USILA National Team of the Week
BETHLEHEM, PA. – Mike Sisselberger, Lacrosse Junior Faceoff Specialist for Lehigh Men, received the more deserved recognition on Tuesday and was named to the USILA National Team of the Week. It does so one day after being appointed Patriot League Faceoff Specialist of the Week. Sisselberger finished Saturday’s 13:12 win against Army West Point No. 7 and won 23 of 27 encounters with 14 groundballs. After Lehigh’s 10-6 win over Loyola, he and Senior James Spence will be the second Mountain Hawk of the season to join the national team of the week.
Saturday marked Sisselberger’s career highs in terms of matches won and won. Stevie Grabher, the Army’s top faceoff specialist (and reigning faceoff specialist of the week in the Patriot League) was only 1-13 against Sisselberger. Sisselberger won all five goals in the first quarter, 12 of 13 in the first half and 15 of the first 16 for the game. He currently leads the nation with 77.6 percent (72.2) while collecting groundballs.
