from press releases

WASHINGTON, Pa. - Washington & Jefferson College senior attacker Zach Devilbiss (Taneytown, Md./Francis Scott Key) recently became the first player in school history to win a NCAA Division III men's lacrosse scoring title. 

Devilbiss led all Division III men's lacrosse players in points per game (5.62) and goals per game (4.54).  He finished the 2009 season with 59 goals and 14 assists for 73 points.

The Presidents' all-time leader in goals (122), assists (48), points (170) and shots (317) graduated with seven single-season or career school records.

Devilbiss led Washington & Jefferson to a school-record eight victories in 2009.  The Presidents posted an 8-5 overall record after finishing the season with four wins in their final five contests.

He also helped W&J record the seventh-highest team ground ball per game average (43.2).  Devilbiss notched 41 ground balls.

In addition, senior midfielder Dan Rosenberg (Chevy Chase, Md./BCC) was the nation's fifth-best faceoff man after winning just under 69 percent (150-of-218) of his faceoff attempts.  Rosenberg ranks second in school history with a 62 percent faceoff win percentage.

Rosenberg also ranked 20th in the country in ground balls per contest (6.69).  He led the Presidents with 87 ground balls and compiled 156 overall in 54 career games at W&J.  His 54 appearances tie him with senior teammate Jonathan Herpy (Centreville, Va./Notre Dame) for the all-time lead.
