Junior Nicole Clauter, the conference's Player of the Year last year, earned first-team honors, joining sophomores Regan Cook, Meghan Fox and Devin Hursey, while seniors Melissa Meehling and Charlotte Wright garnered second-team mentions.

Clauter, an All-American first teamer in 2017, again dominated the middle of the field, picking up 95 draw controls, the most in the conference, and recording 23 caused turnovers, the most on the team and fourth-most in the CAC. Clauter also leads the team in ground balls, with 36.

Cook earned first-team honors for the second time, having also been named All-CAC as a freshman in 2017. The midfielder tallied 46 points on 35 goals and 11 assists, along with 12 ground balls and three caused turnovers.

York's leader in points, and the CAC Rookie of the Year in 2017, Fox, also is on the first team for the second time. She has 57 points on a team-high 47 goals and 10 assists with 10 ground balls, four draw controls and four caused turnovers. 

Hursey took All-CAC distinction for the first time. The midfielder racked up 53 points on 28 goals and 25 assists, the second-most points on the team, while also causing 12 turnovers, the second-most behind Clauter, while picking up 17 ground balls.

Meeling, a senior midfielder, has 36 points on 22 goals and 14 assists with 14 ground balls and 12 caused turnovers. She was also named to the All-CAC second team as a sophomore and junior. 

Wright makes the second team for the second time in her career. She is the all-time leader in goalkeeper wins at York, currently sitting at 42, accounting for another 13 this season, with a .508 save percentage.

York went 7-1 in CAC regular-season play in 2018 and 13-4 overall. The Spartans are headed to their seventh consecutive NCAA Division III Tournament, beginning their run on Sunday at Kinsley Field against the winner of Washington & Lee and Cabrini.
