Men’s lacrosse

Trio selected to All-Big Ten teams

ROSEMONT, Ill. — The Penn State men’s lacrosse team added to its historic season on Tuesday.

Nick Aponte, Grant Ament and Chris Sabia were all named All-Big Ten selections by the conference with the announcement of postseason awards.

Aponte, who also was named the Big Ten’s Offensive Player of the Week on Tuesday, was one of three consenus first-teamers, joining Maryland’s Matt Rambo and Ohio State’s Jake Withers.

Ament joined Aponte on the first team and Sabia was on the second team.

Aponte and Ament became the second and third players to earn first-team All-Big Ten for the Nittany Lions, adding to Aponte’s selection last season.

The Nittany Lions (12-2, 3-2), who at one point ascended to the No. 1 ranking in the nation, face regular-season conference champion Maryland on Thursday in the semifinals of the Big Ten tournament in Columbus, Ohio.

Men’s golf

Huntzinger, Miller earn All-Big Ten nods

ROSEMONT, Ill. — Penn State’s Charles Huntzinger and Cole Miller were named to All-Big Ten on Tuesday by the conference’s coaches.

Huntzinger and Miller were on the first and second teams, respectively.

Huntzinger was one of four unanimous first-team selections, along with Illinois’ Nick Hardy and Dylan Meyer and Northwestern’s Dylan Wu. He became Penn State’s sixth All-Big Ten first-team honoree and first since 2010.

Miller also was the team’s selection for the Big Ten’s Sportsmanship Awards.
