YORK, PA - Sophomore men's lacrosse attack Tyler Hutson (Westminster, Md./Winters Mill) has been named the Spartan Athlete of the Week for the week ending April 14. Hutson earns the award for the third time this spring season.

In the win over Frostburg on Wednesday, Hutson recorded three goals and an assist as the Spartans picked up an 11-4 win. In the key Saturday showdown at Mary Washington, Hutson tallied a match-high five points on four goals and an assist. His third goal of the day gave him 100 career goals in just his 31st collegiate game. Hutson is just the fourth York College men's lacrosse player to reach 100 career points.

Hutson currently sits fourth on the Spartans' all-time scoring list with 135 points. He is just four points out of third place and 16 points out of second.
