Red Lion High School graduate Ali Posey has added another accomplishment to her storied York College field hockey career.
Posey was named to the Longstreth/National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) Division III All-America Second Team.
As a senior in a new role at midfield, Posey finished with 21 points on seven goals and seven assists in 18 games in 2017. She scored a pair of game-winning goals and had at least two points in a game seven times.
"Ali is such a strong competitor when it comes to the sport," Spartans first-year head coach Katie Fost said in a news release. "She has phenomenal stick work, creative play, a bullet for a shot, and, most importantly, leads with integrity and a level head."
The award is the latest for Posey, who has collected a number of them while climbing the Spartans' all-time lists in several categories during her stellar career.
Posey, a senior, was also named a third-team All-American as a sophomore. She is the only All-American in program history. She is also a four-time first-team All-Capital Athletic Conference selection, was named the conference's Rookie of the Year in 2014 and is a four-time pick on the All-Region squad.
She ranks second in York College history in points with 120 in 76 games, second in goals at 50 and tied for eighth in assists with 20. Her 12 game-winning goals rank fourth. Her 383 career shots are the most in program history.
"She is the most hardworking, modest student-athlete that I have had the honor of coaching," Fost said. "Ali has set the bar for what can be achieved within our program and, for that, I'm thankful, because it will continue to push and motivate our current Spartans and future Spartans. She will certainly be missed, but her legacy will continue within our Spartan program."
Posey is one of just 48 D-III student-athletes to earn All-America status.
