YORK, PA – The York College men’s lacrosse squad
received terrific news on Wednesday as a trio of Spartans were
named to the 2010 All-Capital Athletic Conference squad. Seniors
Ryan McNicholas (Fallston, Md./Fallston) and
James Greenwood (Bel Air, Md./Fallston) as well as
sophomore B.J. Blaker (West Chester,
Pa./Henderson) were each selected to the all-league
second-team for their efforts this season.
McNicholas, who garners his first All-CAC post-season accolade, registered one of the most prolific scoring performances in the history of the Spartan program. The senior attackman finished the year with a team-high 47 goals while also contributing 11 assists. Those 47 scores is the second-most in a single-season in the now 11-year history of the program, behind Scott Hermes’ 53 in 2002. He closes out his four seasons with the Green and White owning York’s career goals-scored mark. His 109 tallies during his tremendous career ranks first all-time in Spartan history.
Greenwood lands on the All-CAC squad for the first time in his career. A quality defenseman, the senior led the Spartans in 2010 with 19 caused turnovers while ranking second on the team with 54 ground balls. Named a captain for the York side, Greenwood pushed the Spartans throughout the 2010 campaign as his leadership and experience were key components to the squad this year.
Blaker receives his first bid on the all-conference squad after posting a solid 2010. The sophomore midfielder recorded 20 goals and 12 assists during the season, ranking third on the Spartan side in both categories. His outstanding athleticism combined with an innate lacrosse ability have made Blaker a dangerous player in just his second year of collegiate action.
With the return of Blaker next season, as well as the squad’s leading points scorer Josh Gamble (Easton, Md./Easton) and talented rookie Jamie Lowe (Monrovia, Md./Urbana) the Spartans will look for an even better 2011.
