Vohs Competes in North-South All-Star Game

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Guilford College's Bree Vohs was one of 41 seniors selected to play in the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches' Association (IWLCA) North-South All-Star Game in Downingtown, Pa., June 12. Vohs helped the South to a 16-8 win over the North contributing three ground balls, two draw controls and one caused turnover. Gettysburg's Nina Emala garnered the game's MVP honor by tallying four goals, one assist, six draw controls and two ground balls for the South squad.

The annual all-star game contest began at 2:00 p.m. and was part of the IWLCA's Champions' Cup Tournament at the United Sports Training Center. Vohs is Guilford's fourth senior to play in the game in as many years, joining Jennifer Abelin '09, Mary Hutchins '08 and Caryn Stone '07. Vohs earned honorable mention All-Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) recognition last month and developed into the Quakers' top defender in her lone season with the team. She had eight goals and an assist in 15 matches, but made her biggest mark on defense where she ranked second on the team with 17 caused turnovers and third with 35 ground balls.

Vohs caused a season-high five turnovers, picked up five ground balls and scored a goal and assist in the Quakers' home loss to the University of the South Apr. 11. She also had five pickups in Guilford's season-opening win over Greensboro College Feb. 24. Vohs lettered two seasons with the Quakers' soccer team and plans to finish her degree in criminal justice later this year.

Coach Matthew Grosso's Quakers posted a 6-10 overall record in 2010. The Quakers had a 3-5 league mark that earned the number-six seed in the ODAC Tournament. Third-seeded Lynchburg College ended the Quakers' season in the tourney's opening round with a 21-7 win. Grosso loses Vohs to graduation, but has 14 letter winners due back in 2011.
