Onondaga Community College lacrosse players Randy Staats and Warren Hill were voted players of the year by the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Men's Lacrosse Coaches Association. Staats, who is an attackman, was selected as the offensive player of the year. Hill, who is a goalie, was chosen defensive player of the year. Last month they helped lead the Lazers to their fifth consecutive national championship, their seventh since 2006, and a college lacrosse record 70 consecutive wins.

Staats, a sophomore from Six Nations in Canada, led the NJCAA in scoring with 156 points this year. He will attend Syracuse University in the fall.
