Zach Hubbell continued to add to his haul of awards from the 2017 season Thursday when his name was included on the list of Division III Scholar All-Americans released by the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association.
A Haslett High School product, Hubbell graduated in May with a major in physics and minor in chemistry. In addition to graduating Cum Laude and gaining recognition on the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association's Academic Honor Roll, he stayed on campus during the summer of 2015 to assist chemistry professor Vanessa McCaffrey and physics professor Nicolle Zellner in their ongoing investigation into the role of impacts on simple organic molecules.
Hubbell was previously rewarded for generating a team-high 50 points on 32 goals and 18 assists during the 2017 season by being placed on the USILA's list of honorable mention All-Americans and being selected as the MIAA's Offensive Most Valuable Player as well as the all-MIAA first team.
"Zach is a great kid, and making the All-America team is awesome," Albion Head Coach Jake DeCola said. "It is like putting the icing on a great career. Zach put a ton of work into our lacrosse program over the last four years, and he is really deserving of this honor. In the end, he really had the ability to dominate his matchups, and score at will. He will be remembered as one of the toughest players to stop that we have had. Off the field he served the team for two years as a captain, and was an outstanding student as well. We are very proud of him and everything he has done for Albion."
