Providence, RI - Brown University senior midfielder Will McGettigan (Alexandria, VA) and junior defenseman Bobby Shields (Hampstead, NH) have named second team All-New England selections by the New England Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association.

McGettigan led the Bears in scoring with 27 points, tallying 20 goals and 7 assists. He was also Brown's primary face-off man throughout the season, winning 47 of 98 face-offs. He scored a season high four goals in a win over Bellarmine, and scored two goals against UMBC, Hartford, Penn and Cornell.

Shields, a pre-season All-American and second team All-Ivy selection in 2005, was a stalwart defenseman for the Bears. A three-year starter, Shields started all 13 games and registered his first career assist against Harvard. He also picked up 28 ground balls, second best on the Brown team.
