Veltman earns All-America recognition

Hobart College senior Daryl Veltman was tabbed an honorable mention All-American by the U.S. Intercollegiate Lacrosse Coaches Association over the Memorial Day weekend. One of the top scoring attackmen in the nation, he ranked 15th in the country in goals per game (2.36) and 21st in points per game (3.36). Veltman led the Statesmen in goals scored in each of his four seasons on campus, including 26 tallies this season. He recorded a season-high six points at Georgetown, burning the Hoyas for four goals and two assists. Veltman posted a season-high five goals in an 8-6 win over Penn State, while also collecting a season-high matching four ground balls. He finished the season second on the team with 11 assists and 37 points and scooped up 23 ground balls. A first team All-ECAC selection, Veltman led the conference in goals per game and was second in points per game. He earned All-ECAC second team honors following his sophomore and junior seasons and was the 2005 ECAC Rookie of the Year. Veltman finished his career with 109 goals and 53 assists for 162 points. He holds the Hobart Division I records for career goals and points and ranks 15th on both all-time lists. Veltman is the 200th Hobart All-American and just the sixth to win the honor at the Division I level, joining Jamie Breslin ’01 (2000), Greg McCarthy ’05 (2004 & 2005), Fred Pawlikowski ’98 (1998), Nathan Roost ’98 (1997), and Mike Sweeney ’96 (1996). In all, Statesmen have earned 250 All-America awards. The Statesmen were 8-6 this season and tied for third place in the ECAC with a 4-3 record. The four ECAC wins equal Hobart’s win total in its first three seasons in the league combined.
