Graduated Wolverine Justice Sefas ’13 and senior Jack Temko ’14 were named to U.S. Lacrosse Academic All-American and All-American teams respectively Tuesday. The two midfielders contributed in the lacrosse team’s playoff run, which culminated in a CIF championship loss to St. Margaret’s on May 11, 2013.

Sefas not only earned a spot on the Academic All-American team based on his performance on the field, but also in the classroom. According to U.S. Lacrosse, a member of the team, “is a player who exhibits exemplary lacrosse skills, good sportsmanship on the field, and represents high standards of academic achievement in the classroom. This player also should have left his mark beyond the lacrosse field and the classroom by making significant contributions of service to the school and/or community.” Sefas will attend Cornell University in the Fall of 2014.

Temko, who was recently named Mission League player of the Year, has now also received praise for his play nation-wide. According to U.S. Lacrosse, “A US Lacrosse All-American is a player who exhibits superior skills and techniques and possesses exceptional game sense and knowledge. A US Lacrosse All-American is one of the best players in the United States, while also embodying excellent sportsmanship.”  With now Head Coach Alex Weber and Temko returning next season, the team hopes to reach its goal of a CIF Championship.
