Jim Murphy, St. Francis

Senior defender Jim Murphy of St. Francis, a first-team all-Mission League selection last spring, has committed to play NCAA Division III lacrosse at York College in Pennsylvania.

Murphy also was named Greater LA South All-Area second team after helping the Golden Knights reach the US Lacrosse Southern Section North playoffs for the first time in the program’s four-year history.

York is coming off the most successful season in its 17-year lacrosse history after beating Salisbury 10-9 to claim the program’s first Capital Athletic Conference championship. That win earned the Spartans (18-4 in 2016) their second trip to the NCAA Tournament, where they advanced to the Elite Eight before falling in overtime to Gettysburg.
