York College head coach Jen Muston was selected by her peers as the 2012 Capital Athletic Conference Women's Lacrosse Coach of the Year.
In addition, seven Spartans garnered all-league honors. Leah Schultz, Kim Wayson, and Katie Vautier were first-team choices, while Jordan Hall, Kelsey Evans, Erica Mulford, and Kerri Nicolich each made the second team. The seven all-league selections are the most in Spartan history, eclipsing last year's record five.
Muston's accolade comes on the heels of the most successful season in York women's lacrosse history. Winning the award for the second-straight year, Muston led the Spartans to a 14-4 season and a No. 10 ranking in NCAA Division III.
Schultz makes her third appearance on the all-conference list, garnering her second-straight first-team nod. The junior midfielder set a new Spartan career record in draw controls this season (183) and she set a new single-season program-best with 88 draw controls in 2012, tops in the CAC. She has 31 goals, 30 ground balls and caused 11 turnovers this season.
Wayson also finds herself among the CAC's best for the third time, securing her second first-team honor. Wayson has registered a team-high 79 points on 54 goals and 25 assists. Those 25 helpers are a single-season best for York.
Vautier captures her second All-CAC first-team accolade. The junior captain led the Spartans with 24 caused turnovers. She also leads the squad with 33 ground balls while also earning 43 draw controls, second most on the squad.
Hall returns to the all-league second-team after securing her first All-CAC honor last season. This year, Hall amassed 30 ground balls and 13 draw controls to go with 11 caused turnovers.
Evans makes her first appearance on the all-conference squad. The junior goalie sports a .403 save percentage and a 7.99 goals-against average.
Mulford, a sophomore, posted a career-best 34 goals and 17 assists this season.
Nicolich, also a sophomore, earned her first All-CAC bid. She recorded 33 goals and five assists for 38 points, in addition to 17 ground balls and nine caused turnovers.
The Spartans now await a possible at-large bid into the NCAA Division III Tournament. Selection is slated for 9:30 p.m. Sunday.
