Henninger Suits Up for USILA North/South Contest

YORK, PA - York College men’s lacrosse senior attack Kyle Henninger (Millers, Md./Hereford) recently participated in the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association 2008 North-South All-Star game on May 23 at Harvard Stadium. Henninger’s selection was the first such choice in the history of the Spartan program.
   
The contest consisted of a collection of some of the top NCAA Division III players from the north and south regions along the east coast.

Henninger, who was chosen to represent the Spartans on the South squad, was one of only six attackmen selected to the team throughout the southern region. York’s top points man this year continued his scoring prowess as he tallied one goal to help lift the South to a thrilling 16-15 comeback victory.

“It was a great experience to play with the highest level of talent in the [area],” Henninger said. “It was also a great honor to represent York College and to really show how much the lacrosse program here has grown over the past few years.”

Henninger paced the green and white with 38 points on the year on 23 goals and a team-leading 15 assists.

“Kyle was simply outstanding for us this year,” Spartan head coach Jim Griffin said. “He was definitely a huge reason for the success that we had in 2008. For him to have the opportunity to play in this type of a game is not only great for our program but it is also something that he will remember for a long time.”

Henninger’s strong performance helped to vault the Spartans a 10-7 record their second best season in program history.
