One Panther Named to LEC All-Star Team

November 5th, 1998 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, N.H. – A freshman on the Plymouth State College field hockey team has been selected to the first annual Little East Conference field hockey all-star team.

Rookie midfielder Katie Dodge (Sanbornton, NH) was named an LEC field hockey all-star in voting by the league head coaches. She had a superb freshman campaign,
scoring five goals and one assist to rank third on the team in scoring. She scored two goals against nationally-ranked Cortland State in September, including the game-winning goal
in overtime that gave PSC the Cortland Red Dragon Classic championship. She also earned LEC Player of the Week honors after that performance.

Dodge was one of eight new starters on this year’s team, as well as playing for first-year head coach Abby Burbank. The Panthers finished the regular season with a 3-1 LEC
record and advanced to the final of the conference tournament, but lost to an NCAA-bound Keene State team in the championship, 3-1, and finished 8-9 overall.

Strange omissions from the LEC All-Star team were PSC senior Sarah Mello (Oak Bluffs, MA) and junior Jill Sutherland (Rockport, MA). Mello was a Third-Team All-America
last season and one of PSC’s top all-around players, and Sutherland led the team and ranked third in the conference in scoring with 10 goals and five assists (25 points).
