Hiltz

Hiltz earns top lax honor

-->

WESTERLY — For a Westerly High boys’ lacrosse player, Ian Hiltz is a greybeard.

The senior long-stick midfielder has played lacrosse since he was 13, has been one of the Bulldogs’ best players in their two years of varsity existence and was named to the Division III first-team.

“Ian knows the game very, very well,” Westerly coach Bruce Brawley said. “He’s played since U13 (youth lacrosse), he’s really aggressive and he has tremendous heart.”

Hiltz, a team captain, has mostly defensive responsibilities at the LSM position.

“Against Scituate, I put him on their best player (Garrett Champagne) and he held him to one goal and we won 4-3,” Brawley said. “He’s a natural leader and he really helps motivate the rest of the team.”

Hiltz played in the Rhode Island High school all-star game. He played for the Division I and III team against the Division II all-stars and Division I alternates.

In 2013 Hiltz earned second- team Division III honors.

Three players from most positions are selected for Division III first-team (as well as second-team and honorable mention). However, only one long-stick midfielder was selected as it is more of a specialty position.

Carter White earned Division III honorable mention primarily for his ability to win faceoffs.

Isaac Kaufman, the Bulldogs’ goaltender, also earned honorable mention.

Both Kaufman and White are sophomores and both are first-time award winners.

Westerly also had 21 players earn Academic All-State honors. To qualify, a player must maintain a 3.3 GPA for the year.

The Bulldogs’ Academic All-State players were: White, Ian Hiltz, Lucas Hiltz, Kaufman, John Duncan, Timothy Dobson, Pat Johns, Christian Dean, Joseph Piccolo, Dallas Cottrell, Seth Rohdin, Brandon Swain, Gaelen Frink, Derek Orr, Matt Morrone, Kyle Keegan, Ben Lenzer, Alex Gomes, Evan Mahoney, Alex Sadler and Matt Lynch.
