Seven BayHawks Make 2012 All-Star RostersJune 13, 2012 - Major League Lacrosse (MLL) Chesapeake Bayhawks
Representing the Bayhawks for the Young Guns will be midfielder Ben Hunt and defenseman Mike Evans. This is Hunt's 2nd and Evans' 3rd All-Star appearance. Hunt has tallied 12 points on 10 goals and one two-pointer this season and Evans has continued to be a leader on the defensive line.
Facing off with the Old School team will be attackman Drew Westervelt, midfielders Steven Brooks and Kyle Dixon, and defensemen Nicky Polanco and Brian Spallina. This will be Westervelt's 3rd All-Star nomination and he has brought that star power to Chesapeake this season with 10 goals and 7 assists. Brooks has enhanced the already dangerous offensive line this season and is second on the roster in points with 18. Dixon has been on the All-Star roster four times already and this year is no exception with his record breaking performances. The midfielder currently holds the MLL record for two-point career goals with 39. New to the Bayhawks roster but no strangers to the All-Star game, Polanco and Spallina have made their presence known by shutting down high scoring opponents this season to help the Bayhawks to first place standings.
