Red Lion grad Ali Posey, Central York grad Greta Plappert get regional field hockey honors

  • Two York County field hockey players are on the All-South Region teams.
  • Red Lion grad Ali Posey made the first team.
  • Central York grad Greta Plappert made the second team.

Two York County field hockey players, who excelled this season for York College, have been named to the Longstreth/National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) Division III All-South Region Team.

Red Lion High School graduate Ali Posey was a four-year standout for the York College field hockey team.

Senior Ali Posey, a Red Lion High School graduate, was named to the first team, while sophomore Greta Plappert, a Central York High School graduate, was picked for the second team.

A third York College player, senior Autumn Mallory, was also named to the first team.

Earlier this month, all three were named to the All-Capital Athletic Conference first team.

Ali Posey: Posey has now earned four all-region honors, incuding two first-team appearances. She was also a four-time first-team All-CAC pick. During her senior year, she piled up 21 points on seven goals and seven assists. Her final goal was her 50th of her career, placing her second on the all-time school list. She also sits second in career points, with 120 in 76 games. Her 12 career game-winning goals are fourth all-time.

"Ali had a tremendous four years at York," Spartans coach Katie Fost said in a news release. "I'm glad to see the postseason honors come in for her in her final year."

She added: "I appreciate Ali's unselfish style of play and how she took to her new positioning for us this season. I do not believe we would have had the season we had if not for Ali's leadership and, of course, her phenomenal stick work and level of play that challenges the entire team to become better."

Greta Plappert

Greta Plappert: Plappert burst on the scene during her sophomore year, accounting for 31 points on 14 goals and three assists. Her 14 goals were not only second-most on the team, but also ranked second in the conference, along with ranking third in the CAC in total points.

"Greta had a stellar sophomore campaign, and what is exciting, is that she has two more to continue to grow, and I believe she will do just that," Fost said.

Autumn Mallory: Mallory concluded her career topping the CAC in goals and points, putting away 19 goals and two assists for 40 points. 

"It was clear that Autumn was on a mission this year," Fost explained. "She was hungry to score and it showed on the scoreboard."

Mallory, Posey and Plappert helped the Spartans to a 12-6 season, including 4-2 in conference play, and a spot in the CAC semifinals.
