Sorensen Repeats as Division II Goals Per Game Statistical Championship

INDIANAPOLIS - For the second consecutive season, Florida Southern attacker Dane Sorensen has been named the individual goals per game champion in the final NCAA Division II men's lacrosse national statistics that were released after the conclusion of the 2015 season.

Sorensen, who was a senior this past spring for the Moccasins, finished the 2015 season with 48 goals scored and averaged 3.43 goals per game, which was tops in Division II. The NCAA Division I leader in goals per game was Brown's Dylan Molloy, who averaged 3.65 goals per game and the Division III leader was Lynchburg's Austin Stewart, who averaged 4.54 goals per game.

In addition to scoring a team-best 48 goals on the season, Sorensen also finished the year with seven assists and led the Mocs with 55 points in 14 games. 

On the season, Sorensen, who is a native of Victoria, British Columbia, was named a Third-Team USILA All-American and also named the 2015 Sunshine State Conference Player of the Year. The 6-foot-1 attacker led the team in goals scored in each of his four seasons at FSC, including scoring a school record 63 goals as a junior. Last season, Sorensen also claimed the Division II statistical championship for goals per game as he averaged 4.2 goals per game. 

He finished his Moccasin career with 220 career points, which are more than double that of the next closest player on the program's all-time list. Along with holding the school career marks for goals scored (175), points scored (220), shots on goal (312) and man up goals (38), he also holds school single game marks for most points (12), goals (10) and assists (5). 

Sorensen, who led the Mocs to 34-26 record during his four years at FSC, including winning a school record 11 games in 2014, opened the 2015 season with seven goals and nine points against Pfeiffer on Feb. 7 and added seven more goal nationally-ranked Tampa on March 7. In the team's league victory over Rollins on March 14, Sorensen scored eight times, the second-most goals in a game in school history and added one assist for his second nine-point performance of the year.
