Perry, N.Y. (June 23) – MIT senior Harris Stolzenberg (Weston, Fla.) is the second athlete in the history of the men's lacrosse program to receive Scholar All-America honors as announced by the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association. He joins former teammate Paul Orrson '16 on the Engineers' all-time list.

A Scholar All-American must be nominated by his coach and be a student with a senior year academic standing and a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 (4.0 scale). He will have behaved in a manner that has brought credit to himself, his institution, and to college lacrosse both on and off the field. He must also be an All-American, a member of a North/South team, or an outstanding league or conference player.

Recently named to the CoSIDA Academic All-America At-Large second team, Stolzenberg was tabbed for NEWMAC Athlete of the Year accolades and collected his fourth All-Conference award. He closed his collegiate career as the program's all-time leader in assists (134) and points (268) and finished third in the record books in goals with 134. In addition, Stolzenberg became the first student-athlete at MIT to record 100 goals and 100 assists over his career.

As a finance major, Stolzenberg interned with Deutsche Bank Investment, was an MHR Fund Private Equity Extern and was analyst intern at Sunridge Capital Regional Bank.
