YORK, Pa. – Senior women's lacrosse players Kim Wayson (Harwood, Md./Southern) and Katie Vautier (Harwood, Md./Archbishop Spalding) have been invited to play in the 2013 IWLCA/DeBee North/South Senior All-Star Game on Sunday, May 26th.
Wayson and Vautier are the first players in York women's lacrosse history to be selected for the honor.
"I am happy for Kim and Katie to be recognized as the top seniors in our sport," said head coach Jen Muston. "It's very exciting to have the programs first senior all-star selection and it is going to be really fun watching them compete with the best seniors in Division III."
The two seniors capped off their stellar four-year careers with a trip the NCAA Division III Sweet 16, the furthest in program history. The Spartans 14 wins this season also ties the school record that was established last year. In four years, Wayson and Vautier helped the Green and White win 51 total games, two CAC championship game appearances and two NCAA tournament appearances.
After four impressive years with the Spartans, Wayson has cemented herself in the record books. She owns all of the Spartans career scoring records as she has notched 306 points on 236 goals and 70 assists. She sits 131 points and 77 goals in front of second place. Wayson has also tallied nine game-winning goals in her career. This season, Wayson continued to power the York offense, pouring in 61 goals to go along with 11 assist for 72 points. She was named an IWLCA All-American for the second year in a row, the first Spartans to do so. She also earned her third straight IWLCA All-Metro Region first-team accolade. Wayson ranked in the top of the CAC throughout her career and received All-CAC honors all four years.
Anchoring down the defense for four years, Vautier has also put together a stellar career for the Spartans. She has also become one of the premier defensive players in the CAC. Vautier has started all 71 games of her collegiate career. She has registered a school-record 116 caused turnovers, while her 163 draw controls ranks her third all-time. Her 152 ground balls are second on the Spartans' record books. This season has been one of her best as she has continued to be a key party of a strong Spartan defense. She has picked up 62 draw controls, 38 ground balls and caused 31 turnovers. Vautier is only the second player to receive All-American status in the programs history. She also was named to the IWLCA All-Metro Region squad and the All-CAC first-team for three years straight.
