Boys Lacrosse: Bonner-Prendergast’s Mathis named first-team All-Catholic

Bonner-Prendergast’s Jon Mathis scored 30 goals and 29 assists this season from midfield, helping lead the Friars to the Catholic League playoffs. For that production, Mathis was named to the All-Catholic League first team, the only representative from the Delco schools to make the first team.

Mathis is the only player not among the Catholic League’s top three teams – Archbishop Ryan (4), La Salle (6), and St. Joseph’s Prep (7) – comprising the first team, including Ryan’s attackman and league MVP Shane Taylor.

Bonner-Prendie’s leading scorer, Nick Saraceni (39 goal, 29 assists) lands on the second team attack. He’s joined on the second quad by teammate and defenseman Brian Andruzsko and Archbishop Carroll midfielders Adam Ritter and Joey Rodden. Carroll’s Matthew Manzo was recognized with the George Kruse Award.

The 60 goals scored by Cardinal O’Hara’s Michael Tulskie land him on the third team, alongside attack mate Ryan Gallagher. O’Hara defenseman Andrew Hamilton, midfielder Joseph Mooney and FOGO Kyle Godsey are also on the third team, while Bonner-Prendie’s defensive duo of defenseman Mike Ransone and LSM Luke Ruffenach are also included.

Below is the full list of the first three teams and honorable mentions, which is basically everyone who played this year. (Note: All-Catholic is voted on by league coaches. The Daily Times has no input.)
