York College senior women's lacrosse players Erica Mulford and Ashley Smith have earned second-team All-America honors from the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association.
Mulford finished her Spartan career as one of the top offensive players in program history. She leaves York as the program's all-time leader in games played (74), in addition to having the third-most starts with 60. The senior co-captain ranks second at York in career points with 202, becoming only the second Spartan to reach the 200-point milestone. Mulford's totals of 155 goals and 47 assists both rank third all-time at York.
The three-time All-CAC selection finished her 2014 campaign ranked fourth in the Capital Athletic Conference in goals with 49 and eighth in points with 59.
Smith ends her Spartan career with the best career save percentage (.498) and the best single-season save percentage (.512) in program history. The senior co-captain net-minder also holds the single-season record for wins with 15 (2014).
Smith ranks second in goals-against average (8.13), career saves (278) and career wins (28), while ranking third in saves-per-game (6.45) and single-season saves with 163 (2014). A two-time All-CAC selection, Smith ended her senior season ranked second in the conference in saves (165), save percentage (.512) and goals-against average (8.61).
"Erica is one of the best attackers in D-III and I'm just really proud that she is being recognized for her efforts," York head coach Jen Muston said. "Erica provided us with big plays and big goals in key situations when we needed it. She had a great overall season for us.
"Ashley really stepped up and took control of the defensive unit this year. Ashley is one of the best goalies in Division III and definitely pushed us to a new level defensively this year. She was a difference maker in games when we really needed someone to make an impact."
"I'm really proud of both of them and it's a great way for them to end their careers because it's not easy to be selected as an All-American. It's a very competitive process. They are both completely deserving of this honor because it sums up their careers and the work they have put in to become great."
