BALTIMORE, Md. - Bridgewater College attack Eric Husselbaugh has been named to the Inside Lacrosse Preseason D-III All-American team, as published in the magazine's Face-Off Yearbook edition.

The junior honorable mention selection is the program's first Preseason All-American after being named the team's first-ever All-American selection last spring- just his second season of collegiate competition.

With 87 points on 54 goals and 33 assists, Husselbaugh led the ODAC in scoring as a sophomore. All three totals set new school single season records.

He was named to the USILA National Team of the Week after recording nine points in consecutive conference victories vs. Shenandoah and Virginia Wesleyan, Bridgewater's two closest competitors for the ODAC's final playoff spot. He followed that with four goals and two assists in another imporant league win at Guilford.

Husselbaugh then scored the game-winner in the program's best win to date- tallying on a crease dive with 21 seconds remaining in BC's 14-13 victory over Hampden-Sydney. He finished with a hat trick in that game, and added four points in an ODAC quarterfinal matchup against the Tigers.

He was named an honorable mention USILA All-American, first team VaSID All-State, and second team All-ODAC. 

As a freshman in 2018, Husselbaugh started every game and ranked second on the team in scoring with 35 goals, 12 assists and 47 points.

Bridgewater, looking to build on a 13-5 campaign in 2019, will open the 2020 season at home vs. Mary Washington on February 26.
