Cambridge, Mass. – University at Albany’s Steve Ammann has been chosen America East Conference Scholar-Athlete of the Year in men’s lacrosse for the 2008-09 academic year, as announced on Tuesday, July 22 by the conference office. He has a 3.83 cumulative grade point average in business administration with a concentration in finance and marketing.

Ammann, a senior from Putnam Valley, N.Y., recently was named to the ESPN The Magazine District I All-Academic Men’s At-Large Team. He earned UAlbany’s Presidential Scholar-Athlete Award as the senior male athlete with the highest GPA and received the President’s Award for Leadership. Ammann was a member of the conference all-academic squad for the second straight year and the America East Commissioner’s Academic Honor Roll.

A second-team all-conference midfielder for the second year in a row, Ammann ranked fourth on the UAlbany team in scoring with 15 goals and 12 assists. He made 65 appearances and accounted for 36 goals, 35 assists and 80 ground balls as a collegian. He helped lead the Great Danes to a pair of America East championships and two NCAA berths in 2005 and 2007.

Ammann, who played alongside his brother, Mike, on the team’s second midfield line, has been active in the community with Habitat for Humanity, Walk for Juvenile Diabetes and Adopt-A-Family. Prior to graduation last May, he served internships with Morgan Stanley and Northwestern Mutual Financial Network.
