HARTSVILLE, S.C.- Coker senior defender Kaitlyn Kimball was selected to play in the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) Division II senior all-star game on Sat. June 3, 2017.

 The event is put on by the IWLCA to showcase the nation's top seniors. Kimball is one of 43 players at the Division II level to be participating in the game, and the first in program history from Coker. Kimball played and started in all 19 games for the Cobras as a senior. She was second on the team in ground balls, led the team and the conference in caused turnovers with 60 and also won seven draw controls. In addition to winning the South Atlantic Conference statistical championship for caused turnovers (3.00), she was also named to the All-SAC first team. She is third on the Coker all-time list with 136 ground balls and the all-time leader with 134 caused turnovers. She is also the single-season caused turnovers record holder with 60. Her 49 ground balls in 2017 are fourth all-time on the single-season list. She broke the Coker single-game record for caused turnovers in 2017, notching seven against North Greenville on Feb. 25. She scored a career-high three goals and added one assist for four total points.
"I am so excited to have Kaitlyn be one of the few selected for Division II to participate in the IWLCA Senior All-Star game," said Coker head coach Kate Keagins. "It is a great way for her to finish out her career and honor all of her hard work throughout her senior year," said Keagins.   

She is the daughter of Ronald and Emily Kimball, and graduated with a bachelor of science in physical education on May 13.
