Mount Saint Mary College graduate Matthew Martino of Watertown added another honor to his resume when he was named a Scholar All-American by the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association. The academic honor comes on the heels of Martino being named First Team All-Skyline Conference and a USILA Honorable Mention All-American. To be considered for Scholar All-American status, a student-athlete must be a senior, behaved in a manner that brought credit to himself, his institution and college lacrosse and either be an All-American selection, a member of a North/South team or an outstanding conference performer. Martino checked three of the four boxes in 2021 after being named an Honorable Mention All-American and First Team All-Skyline Conference while anchoring the Knights’ defense in his fourth season with the program. Martino had a standout career for the Knights, earning All-Conference recognition three times, excluding 2020 when the Skyline Conference did not recognize an All-Conference list due to Covid-19 halting the season. Martino was named Second Team All-League as a freshman in 2018 before picking up First Team Accolades in both 2019 and 2021. In four years as a Knight, Martino appeared in 40 games for the Mount, including two shortened seasons in both 2020 and 2021. He picked up 127 groundballs and caused 72 turnovers to go along with one goal. Martino leaves the program ranked just outside the top-10 all-time in groundballs and third all-time in caused turnovers. Martino led the Mount to a program record 12 wins as a freshman in 2018 as the Knights made their first ever appearance in the Skyline Conference Championship Final.
