USA Lacrosse Magazine Names Navy’s Bonitz and Skalniak to All-America Teams

The first of three All-America teams were announced Tuesday evening, as USA Lacrosse Magazine named Navy’s Jackson Bonitz (So ​​/ D / Shrewsbury, Pa.) and Patrick Skalniak (Jr / M / Dallas, Texas) Third-Team All-Americans. USA Lacrosse Magazine identified 78 players overall as All-Americans, including first-, second- and third-team honors as well as honorable mentions.

A two-time All-Patriot League selection, Bonitz engineered an exceptionally young defensive unit as the lone returning starter among the entire defense (close defense, long-stick midfield, short-stick defensive midfield, goalkeeper). The Mids stand 13th nationally and #2 in the Patriot League in scoring defense, allowing 10.13 goals per game among 15 contests this spring. Bonitz led the team with 18 caused turnovers which ties for the 10th most in program history, while his 28-career takeaways is the13th-best mark on the Mids’ all-time leader board.

Named to the 2022 USA Lacrosse U21 Team, Bonitz will play in the 2022 U21 World Lacrosse Championship in Limerick, Ireland in August.

Skalniak is a two-time First-Team All-Patriot League midfielder who paced Navy with 48 points on a team-best 28 goals and 20 assists. He closed out the season as one of just five midfielders in the program’s 115-year history to reach 40 points in a single season with his 48 points tying Ryan Wade (2019) as the third most by a Navy midfielder. Skalniak, who has produced a point in each of the 29 games Navy has played since his arrival in 2020, turned in multiple points in 10 of the 15 games this spring and 5 or more points in 5 contests. Additionally, Skalniak joined forces with fellow Navy midfielders Dane Swanson (So ​​/ St. Mary’s City, Md.) and Max Hewitt (So ​​/ Denver, Colo.) to become the first trio in school history to each reach 30 points.

The USILA and Inside Lacrosse All-Americans are expected to be announced leading into the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Semifinals.
