She added two assists versus Sewanee for a season-high seven points.

Guilford's ninth two-time All-ODAC lacrosse honoree, Ernst concluded her career ranked second among the Quakers' all-time scoring leaders with 188 points in 64 matches. Her 144 career goals also stand second at Guilford, just two scores behind Jen Harrison's '91 school record. Ernst set the Quakers' career draw controls record (160) this spring and also ranks among the Quakers' all-time leaders in caused turnovers (71, 2nd), assists (44, 3rd) and ground balls (141, 10th). She will graduate later this year with a degree in education studies and psychology.

Bradburd, a sophomore defender, ranked sixth on the team with 29 ground balls and also contributed 10 points on eight goals and two assists in 16 games. She scored a season-high four points with a personal-best three goals and an assist at the University of Mary Washington Apr. 4.

She also led the Quakers with 54 draw controls and stands second in the ODAC with 3.38 draws per game.

She had a team-high four goals at Mary Washington, which was also one of her 13 games with three or more draw controls. Frazier enters her junior campaign with 55 points in 31 games on 49 goals and six assists.

Nogueira, a senior midfielder, capped a stellar career with 32 points in 11 games. She scored 17 goals and a team-high 15 assists before incurring a season-ending knee injury.

Nogueira totaled four assists and a career-high nine ground balls Feb. 28 versus Denison, the second-highest ground ball total in school history.

A three-year starter and 2009 Second Team All-ODAC pick, Nogueira compiled 129 career points in 61 games on 84 goals and 45 assists. Her name is scattered throughout the Quakers' record book as she stands among Guilford's all-time leaders in points (9th), goals (9th), assists (2nd), ground balls (154, 7th), caused turnovers (61, 3rd) and draw controls (108, 5th). Nogueira graduated May 8 with degrees in health sciences and sports medicine.

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

The five students helped coach Matthew Grosso's team to a 6-10 overall record. The Quakers posted 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 Ernst, Nogueira and Vohs to graduation, but returns Bradburd and Frazier among 14 letter winners due back in 2011.
