Six Spartans Earn IWLCA All-Region Accolades

YORK, Pa. – The York College women's lacrosse team placed six players on the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) All-Region teams, the IWLCA announced on Thursday afternoon by the organization.

Nicole Clauter, Meghan Fox and Regan Cook were All-Region picks for the second straight year, joining Devin Hursey on the All-Metro first team, while Melissa Meehling and Charlotte Wright were named to the second team.

Clauter, an IWLCA first-team All-American a year ago, has been the rock for the Spartan defense and midfield yet again, leading York in draw controls, with 99, ground balls, with 37, and caused turnovers, with 25. Three times she has amassed over 10 draw controls in a game, including setting the school record with 14 against St. Mary's (Md.). She was a first-team All-Metro pick last season and was a first-team All-CAC pick earlier this month.

Fox was a first-team All-Metro selection last year and another All-CAC first teamer this season. The sophomore is leading the Green and White in scoring, recording 59 points on 49 goals and 10 assists, including an eight-goal game against No. 3 Trinity (Conn.) in a double-overtime win. Fox has been a reliable scorer in the Spartan attack, scoring in each of the 17 games this season, and more than once in 11 of them.

Cook is a two-time All-CAC first-team selection, and now, as a sophomore, is making her second appearance on an All-Region team, having been named to the second team last year. She is third on the team in scoring, totaling 47 points on 36 goals and 11 assists, 14 ground balls and three draw controls.

Hursey was the fourth first-team All-CAC pick from the Green and White, recording 57 points on 29 goals and 28 assists with 20 ground balls, 12 caused turnovers and seven draw controls. She set the school record for assists in a game, dishing out nine against St. Mary's, finishing with 11 points.

On the second team were Meehling and Wright, two seniors that help lead and do a lot more than what shows on the stat sheet. Meehling is fifth on the team in scoring, with 38 points on 24 goals and 14 assists, while also picking up 15 ground balls and causing 15 turnovers.

Wright owns the most wins as a goalie in school history, making 133 saves while allowing just 8.26 goals a game in over 878 minutes. Six times she finished a game with at least 10 saves, including 14 in a win over Christopher Newport.

The Spartans are still alive in the NCAA Tournament, sport a 14-4 record, and will take on Catholic in the Sweet 16 on Saturday at Middlebury. The winner will face the winner of Middlebury and Ill. Wesleyan in the Elite Eight on Sunday.
