Spartans Post Three on All-CAC Squad

YORK, PA – The York College women’s lacrosse team received outstanding news this week as a trio of Spartans were named to the All-Capital Athletic Conference squad for the 2010 campaign. Senior Kelly Vrana (West Islip, N.Y./St. John the Baptist), freshman Kimmy Wayson (Harwood, Md./Southern), and freshman Leah Schultz (Catonsville, Md./Seton Keough) were each chosen to the all-conference second-team for their efforts this season.

Vrana makes her second appearance on the all-league roster after also being a second-team selection as a junior. Vrana put together another terrific campaign as she became the bone fide leader of the Spartan defense. The senior started all 16 York contests posting 33 ground balls and 31 draw controls, both top-three marks for the Green and White, while she also caused 13 turnovers.

Wayson made a tremendous splash in just her first season of collegiate lacrosse. The exceptionally talented rookie posted a team-best 57 goals, the second highest total in the conference, while also recording a team-high 15 assists. A starter from the day the season began, Wayson’s three game-winners ties her for the team-lead while she also picked up 20 ground balls and 20 draw controls.

Schultz recorded an outstanding season in just her freshman year. She tallied 37 goals, which ranks second on the squad, while dishing out seven assists, the Spartans’ third-highest mark. Her trio of game-winning tallies knots her with Wayson for the team-lead in that category. A starter in all 16 games, not only was Schultz outstanding on the offensive end but she also recorded a team-high 37 draw controls and collected 32 ground balls, the fourth-best on the squad.

Despite losing Vrana to graduation, the Spartans look to be in great shape heading into next season.  Six of York’s top seven scorers, including Wayson and Schultz, are set to return for the 2011 campaign as the Green and White continue to look to ascend the tough CAC ladder.
