LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Catholic University men's lacrosse senior Luke Scaduto was named to the 2019 USILA Division III Scholar All-America Team on Thursday, marking the fourth-straight year that the Cardinals have had at least one player selected.
Scaduto is the fourth different Cardinal to earn the honor over the last three years, joining Bennett Bradley, Tim Keith and Victor Licata.
The 2019 Landmark Conference Men's Lacrosse Senior Scholar Athlete, Scaduto graduated last month with a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering and a 3.89 grade-point average. He was a two-time All-Landmark Conference selection, earning second team honors this year after helping lead the Cardinals to an appearance in the Landmark Conference semifinals. He was also named to the Landmark Conference All-Sportsmanship Team.
Scaduto finished third on the team with 35 ground balls and had at least one in 15 of the team's 16 games. He also totaled three goals, two assists and six caused turnovers. For his career, he played in 63 of the team's 67 games, including all 49 over the last three seasons, while totaling six goals, five assists, 143 ground balls and 32 caused turnovers.
Off the field, Scaduto participated in Catholic's annual MLK Day of Service, Brookland Field Day and Mother Theresa Day of Service. He was named to the Dean's List every semester and was a three-time Landmark Conference Spring Academic Honor Roll selection.
Scaduto was one of only 75 players from 246 men's lacrosse teams in Division III to be named to the Scholar All-America Team, including one of two from the Landmark Conference. Elizabethtown's Jeremy Klipple was also selected.
To earn USILA Scholar All-America honors, a nominee must be a student with senior year academic standing and a 3.0 cumulative grade point average. Begun in 1989, the program was established to recognize student-athletes from USILA member institutions who have distinguished themselves academically, athletically and as citizens of their communities.
