HANOVER, N.H. — One day after earning Ivy League Rookie of the Week honors, Dartmouth men’s lacrosse freshman Emmett Paradine has been named to the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) National Team of the Week. Paradine is one of 10 student-athletes nation-wide recognized. He follows senior Tommy Rogan as Big Green named to the team this season; Rogan received the honor following the season opener at Merrimack.

The two honorees are tied with Cornell for the most in the Ivy League through four weeks this season. Brown, Penn and Yale have all had one honoree thus far.

On Monday, Paradine became Dartmouth’s fourth straight Ivy League Rookie of the Week to begin the year (and Paradine’s second in a row). He finished last Tuesday’s big 20-16 win at Hobart with 10 points via seven goals and three assists. Paradine became the first freshman nationally to reach double figures in a game this season and the first Ivy League freshman to reach 10 points in a game since Jeff Teat of Cornell during the 2017 season. Paradine had a hand in half of Dartmouth’s 20 goals for the game, with all of his points proving important in a high-scoring affair. 

Following a goal and two assists in the first half, Paradine exploded for six goals and an assist in the second half. There was one stretch in which he scored four goals in the span of 9:32 bridging the end of the third and beginning of the fourth quarters, helping the Big Green turn a 9-9 tie into a 16-12 lead.

Paradine is currently one of just 11 players nationally to post 10+ points in a game this season (the 10 are tied for second most). The 10 points marked the most points scored by any Big Green player since Brendan Callahan became head coach at Dartmouth.

For the season, Paradine leads the Big Green in goals (14) and points (19) while his five assists are tied for first.

Receiving votes in both the Inside Lacrosse Media and USILA Coaches Polls and one of just three remaining undefeated teams in the nation, the Big Green will return to the field on Sunday at No. 13 North Carolina. Gametime is set for 12 p.m. on ACC Network. The Big Green also came in at No. 20 in Quint Kessenich’s Top 20 and the Lacrosse Network Poll.
