York College's Dougherty picked to play in senior all-star field hockey game


York College senior women's lacrosse defender Karlie Dougherty was selected to play in the 2015 Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association Senior All-Star Game.

The IWLCA made the announcement Thursday afternoon.

Dougherty, the Capital Athletic Conference Player of the Year, earned a spot on the NCAA Division III South squad coached by Lebanon Valley's Jackie Dando. Dougherty is one of four players representing Capital Athletic Conference schools, joining Salisbury's Kate Haker and Hayden Hutzell and St. Mary's Christy Bishop join Dougherty on the South squad.

The three divisional games will be played on Saturday, June 6, at Cabrini College in Radnor, Pennsylvania. The Division III game will begin at 2 p.m. following the Division I game at 11:30 a.m. and the Division II game at 12:45 p.m.

The senior all-star game will make a busy weekend for Dougherty. She will also be honored at the IWLCA banquet later on Saturday. Dougherty became the first player in the 10-year history of the York College women's lacrosse program to earn IWLCA first team All-America honors.

Dougherty is the fourth Spartan in the last three years to earn an IWLCA Senior All-Star Game invitation. Kim Wayson and Katie Vautier earned a trip to the game in 2013 and Erica Mulford earned the honor last spring.

The Spartans finished the year with a school-record tying 15 wins. They also ended the year ranked seventh in the final IWLCA Division III coaches poll.
