Grant Ament Named To All-NCAA Tournament Team

Penn State men’s lacrosse star attackman Grant Ament was named to the All-Tournament team after the conclusion of this year’s NCAA tournament.

Ament is the only Penn Stater to make the All-Tournament squad and just one of two who didn’t play in Monday’s national championship game with Yale and Virginia. The playmaker scored seven goals and added an NCAA tournament-record 18 assists in three games throughout the Big Dance as he pulled the strings for Penn State’s deadly attack.

Being named to the All-NCAA Tournament team is one of many honors Ament has earned this season. He was named a first team All-American by Inside Lacrosse and the USILA after earning first team All-Big Ten honors and being unanimously selected as the conference’s offensive player of the year. Ament is also one of five finalists for the Tewaaraton Award, which is awarded to college lacrosse’s most outstanding player.

Ament was one of three players who scored more than 100 points this season, and his total of 126 points led the nation. He also chipped in 96 assists this season — 31 more than Pat Spencer’s second-placed total of 65 — while also showcasing his excellent finishing skills with 30 goals. The redshirt junior will be back in Happy Valley next season, and he showed no signs of slowing down his production with at least six points in his final nine games of the 2019 season.

Mikey Mandarino

In the most upsetting turn of events, Mikey graduated from Penn State with a digital & print journalism degree in the spring of 2020. He covered Penn State football and served as an editor for Onward State from 2018 until his graduation. Mikey is from Bedminster, New Jersey, so naturally, he spends lots of time yelling about all the best things his home state has to offer. Mikey also loves to play golf, but he sucks at it because golf is really hard.
