Jim Murphy, St. Francis

Senior defender 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 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.
