The 5-10, 165-pound forward led the Bobcats and the conference with 14 goals and 35 points en route to his second career Conference Carolinas Player of the Year selection.

The three-time All-American concludes his career with 67 goals, 15 assists, and 149 points to rank among the program's all-time leaders in each category. A native of Sheffield, England, Squires finished the season ranked fifth in the region in total goals and total points, while concluding his decorated career with the Bobcats with a trio of 10-goal campaigns, including a pair of years with at least 20 scores.

Lees-McRae is expected to return 16 lettermen for their Conference Carolinas Tournament Championship squad, including all-Conference Carolinas First Team selections Luke Perry (Cheshire, England), David Palmer (Gateshead, England), and Luke Duffy (Wakefield, England).
