YORK, Pa. - Leah Schultz and Erica Mulford captured Capital Athletic Conference Women's Lacrosse Players of the Week after leading the #16 York College women's lacrosse squad to a 2-0 week against a pair of league opponents. The Spartans, 10-2 overall and 5-0 in conference play, topped Frostburg St. 19-6 in Frostburg, Md. on Wednesday before picking up a 17-11 home triumph over #13 Mary Washington on Saturday.

In the Green and White's tilt against Mary Washington, Schultz was all over the field as she tallied six draw controls, two caused turnovers, three ground balls, and two goals. For the season, the junior captain leads the Spartans with 56 draw controls while she is second on the team with 20 ground balls.

The sophomore set a career high with five goals in the Spartan victory over Mary Washington while she also provided an assist. For the year, Mulford is second on the squad with 26 goals while she has also posted 14 assists.
