  • PISCATAWAY, NJ – Two members of the 2003 Rutgers men’s lacrosse recruiting class have earned High School All-American honors. Colin Checcio (Radnor, PA), a freshmen attackman, and Mike Sissler (Ramapo, NJ), a freshman defenseman, were named 2003 US Lacrosse Boys High School All-Americans.

    Checcio whose brother, Ian, played soccer at Rutgers from 1994-1997, was named Main Line Player of the Year as a senior. A three-year starter, he shattered his own school record for goals in a season with 68 last season (his previous record was 50, accomplished his sophomore year). He added 42 assists last season to total 110 points, which also stands as a single-season school record. He graduated as Radnor’s all-time leader in goals (157) and points (250) and led the Red Raiders to a 19-3 record last season and the school’s first appearance in the PSLA final. He was a first-team Main Line All-Star as a junior and was also named to the All-Central League first team. Checcio scored six goals during a game twice last season. In the semifinals of the PSLA Tournament, he scored four goals, including the game-winner.

    Sissler is a 6-3, 205-pound defenseman who was a two-sport star at Ramapo High School. He excelled in football as a defensive end and tight end. Sissler was one of the top defenders and all-around athletes in the state of New Jersey. Last year, he was a First-Team All-League and Second-team All-State selection.

    Rutgers fashioned the biggest turnaround in Division I last season, going 10-5 overall and gaining a bid to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 1991. Head coach Jim Stagnitta was named the ECAC and National Coach of the Year.
