In York, Pa., eighth-ranked York locked down Washington & Lee and captured a 10-3 win in the NCAA Tournament second round at Kinsley Field. Charlotte Wright made 11 saves and held the Generals scoreless until 11:20 remaining in the second half. The Spartans are now 5-0 all-time at Kinsley Field in the NCAA Tournament. The Spartans (14-4) will meet Catholic (15-6) in Saturday's third round. 

All third round and quarterfinal sites will be announced by the NCAA early this week.
