A school-record three players from the York College women's lacrosse team were named NCAA Division III All-Americans by the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association on Wednesday.
Junior Nicole Clauter earned first-team honors for the second season in a row, and was joined by sophomore Meghan Fox, while another sophomore, Devin Hursey, was placed on the third team.
Fox and Hursey become just the eighth and ninth All-Americans in school history, and it was the fourth year in which the Spartans earned more than one in a season.
Clauter was the seventh Spartan All-American when she garnered first-team distinction in 2017 as a sophomore and becomes the first player in school history to be placed on the first team more than once. She controlled a school-record 112 draws this season, causing 29 turnovers, the second-most in a season all-time, while also scooping 40 ground balls.
She is now second in career draw controls in school-history with 216, trailing Leah Schultz, who had 264.
Fox becomes just the third first-team pick in school history and joins Clauter as the only two to earn that distinction as sophomores. She finished with 67 points on 57 goals and 10 assists and scored a goal in every game this season. Her 57 goals are tied for the fourth most in a season in school history, and she now has 96 goals in her first two years, the fifth-most in a career all-time.
Hursey, after totaling 25 points in her freshman year, scored 30 goals and dished out 32 assists to finish with 62 points in her second year, the second-most on the team. Her 32 assists were the most in a season in school history.
Clauter, Fox and Hursey are three of a solid group of Spartans who will return next year from a team that finished 15-5 overall and 7-1 in Capital Athletic Conference play. The trio also helped York to a pair of NCAA Division III wins and a berth in an NCAA regional final for the third time in school history.
