Yoder, Howe Named To A-10 All-Conference Team

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - St. Bonaventure women's lacrosse senior Kathryn Yoder and freshman Rebecca Howe earned Atlantic 10 All-Conference honors, officials announced Tuesday. 

Yoder, an Amherst, N.Y. native, and one of the team's captains, received All-Conference Second Team accolades for the second consecutive season, again leading the Bonnies in every defensive category. Her 34 caused turnovers ranked fourth in the A-10 while she also scooped up 38 ground balls, tying for 14th overall and tied for eighth among field players. 

A four-year member of the Bonnies, she graduates second in program history with 120 caused turnovers, and sixth with 150 ground balls. 

She is also the second Bonnies player to record consecutive 30-plus caused turnover seasons and three career seasons with 20 or more caused turnovers, joining Emily Lilyea '03. 

Howe, a native of Laconia, N.H., was named to Atlantic 10 All-Rookie Team and provided the Bonnies with a spark from the draw control circle, corralling 30 draws, tied for 24th in the conference. 

Among A-10 freshmen, Howe ranked second in draw controls, trailing only George Mason's Deanna Balsama who was the conference Rookie of the Week seven times. 

Howe's 11 draw controls vs. Kennesaw State were the most by a Bonnie in a single-game over the past five seasons and most since Rylee Arnold's eight vs Fresno State last season.

Outside of the draw control circle, Howe totaled four points, two goals and two assists, on 12 shots. She registered 14 ground balls and caused four turnovers. 

Howe is the first Bonnie to be named to the conference all-rookie team since Morgan Conroy in 2015.
