Lacrosse honors pour in for West York grad Garman
West York High School graduate Klayton Garman has garnered some national attention for his play with the Lebanon Valley College men's lacrosse team.
Garman has been named the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association/BSN Sports NCAA Division III South Offensive Player of the Week.
For Garman, it is his first USILA honor of his career.
The senior's latest accolade comes after he put together an historic week during which he totaled 13 points on 12 goals and one assist for LVC. He opened the week with four points on three goals and an assist against Middle Atlantic Conference Commonwealth foe Messiah. In an 18-5 win over Alvernia on the weekend, the senior attack attempted nine shots and scored nine goals to set a new single-game program record. He became just the second player in program history to net 100 goals for a career in the win over the Crusaders.
Tuesday, he was named the ECAC South Offensive Player of the Week after earning his second MAC Commonwealth Player of the Week honor on Monday. Garman is just the fourth player in program history to earn the USILA national recognition.
For the season, Garman leads LVC in goals (39) and points (57). He's second on the team in assists with 18.
The Flying Dutchmen (9-7, 3-5 MAC Commonwealth) will await this weekend's results to see if they qualify for the upcoming MAC Commonwealth Championship Tournament. The final playoff spot will belong to either LVC or Lycoming. Holding the tiebreaker over the Warriors, the Dutchmen will hope that Widener can defeat Lycoming on Saturday afternoon, thus sealing the No. 5 seed.
