Will Haus wins all-America lacrosse honors at Duke
Less than a week after being name a scholar all-American, former Chapel Hillian Will Haus has been named a first-team all-American by the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association. Haus, who graduated this spring from Duke, was joined on the USILA team by fellow Blue Devil Myles Jones, the nation’s top-scoring midfielder.
Haus is a son of former UNC head coach John Haus, now head coach at Lebanon Valley College, and a younger brother of former Chapel Hill High School player John Haus, who went on to star at Maryland.
Labeled by the Blue Devil staff as “arguably, Duke’s most important player,” Will Haus led Duke’s defense as the nation’s premier short-stick, defensive midfielder throughout much of his career. He led all non-faceoff specialists with a career-high 57 ground balls and 13 caused turnovers.
A 2014 honorable mention All-American, Haus collected a career-high matching six loose balls against both North Carolina and Stony Brook this season.
Haus completed his career with 186 ground balls and 33 caused turnovers on the defensive end of the field. Offensively, he scored 24 goals with 12 assists for 36 points. A senior captain, he was a significant part of a senior class that went 60-19, won consecutive NCAA titles, an ACC title and advanced to three straight championship weekends.
