MONTREAL – A school record five athletes from McGill University have earned All-Canadian honours from the Canadian University Field Lacrosse Association.

The 11-member squad, which represented the CUFLA Eastern Conference, also featured three players from Trent University in Peterborough, Ont., two from Bishop’s and one from Queen’s.

Moreau, the team captain and a two-time all-Canadian, led the Redmen with 30 points, including 20 goals, in 10 regular season games. Overall, the 6-foot-3, 190-pound arts and science junior posted a 27-15-42 record in 14 contests
