Senior midfielders Will Dutton of league-champion Thousand Oaks and Marty Shargel of Agoura were named league co-Most Valuable Players on the All-Marmonte League team released Monday by the league’s coaches.
Dutton was a first-team All-Marmonte League selection as a short-stick defensive midfielder last season. This season he helped the Lancers to a 12-7 overall record (7-3 in league play) and a playoff berth. He will play next season at NCAA Division II Westminster College in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Shargel, also a first-team All-Marmonte selection as a junior, averaged more than three goals per game this season in leading Agoura to a 15-6 overall record and a No. 4 seed in the US Lacrosse playoffs. The Chargers reached the LA semifinals, where they lost Saturday to No. 1 Palos Verdes. Shargel plans to play next year at Onondaga CC in New York.
Head coach Michael Delabar of Thousand Oaks was named Marmonte League Coach of the Year.
Along with Dutton, Thousand Oaks placed four other players on the All-Marmonte team, including repeat honorees Matt Parham, the league’s top face-off specialist once again, and Zac Asbury, a second-team selection at midfield last year. Both Parham and Asbury also were named second-team All-Marmonte in 2015.
Senior defender Taylor Dankenbring and junior LSM Cooper Isaacs were among five other Agoura players joining Shargel on the all-league list. Both made the first team this year. Dankenbring was a first-team selection last year, while Isaacs made the second team as a sophomore.
Eight members of the Oaks Christian Lions were named to the all-league teams, led by repeat first-team honoree Cort Rogers, a junior attack. First-team selection Danny Redell, a senior middie, was a second-team pick last year.
Westlake junior attack Duke Cohen was named first-team All-Marmonte for the second year in a row, and Warriors senior goalie Matt Kilkeary was named all-league for the third time, adding a first-team selection to two previous second-team honors.
Newbury Park had four players honored, including senior defensive middie Andrew Noble on the first team and senior attack Robbie McInerney and senior defender Anderson Hill each earning second-team honors for the second year in a row.
